Fashion has always been a repetition of ideas... But what makes it new is how you put it together.

The Two Fridas by Frida Kahlo

How do you mend a broken heart?....
When Frida first painted this piece, she initially wrote in her diary that it was inspired by an imaginary friend she had as a child. It was only much later on, perhaps after she had somewhat recovered from the emotional struggle of the divorce, that she admitted her divorce is what inspired her to create it.

Saudade – Fashion Inspiration

As might be expected, there are no bright and cheerful pieces in this group... but what we do have is some classics brought together to provide a calm and somewhat melancholy outfit that would be nice on an overcast *not raining* day.

Saudade by Almeida Junior

All the love that remains...
Saudade is a beautiful oil painting by one of Brazil's most famous artists. If like me, you'd never heard of the word Saudade before - its because it's one of those words that has no English equivalent... but this painting captures it's meaning perfectly.
