When I first saw this EGG & BEAN collection, I wanted every single piece. Created by Alicia Marulanda, a Montreal-based designer + artist, simple yet sexy illustrations of naked women, are placed on very basic items of clothing. And by doing so, Alicia’s illustrations become the main focus. But what’s so great about these nudes is that they by no means objectify, but rather, celebrate Alicia’s inspiration: all of life’s characters + sensual pleasures.
There is something very crude about her illustration style, in the play between very angular lines + curves, giving the different pieces a retro yet modern appeal. Just look at the slip dress above, + notice how perfect it is, in the off-center placement of the woman + the size of the image, which is big enough to make a statement, but not obnoxiously.
And I’m sure, if you’re a woman, you can probably identify with a few, if not all of the women shown here.
But who wouldn’t want to own a ‘Stoner Pussy Sweater’ above in white or the black ‘Domina Sweater’? Either way, any of these pieces would be key for Spring, don’t you think, especially the ‘Pisces’ dress above?
(Some of the pieces are made by Print All Over Me.)
