INSPIRATION :: Spring/Summer ’14 from Japanese Fashion Label FRAPBOIS

In the blogging world, everything gets so narrow sometimes. The same trends and colors and patterns — and even the same images — get passed around over and over. This can be a great tool within a specific genre (blogging tends to reveal trends), but all the sameness  stifles creativity and originality. That’s why I love looking outside of the United States for inspiration. Clothing, decor, and even photography styles vary so much from culture to culture! If we want to expand our own imagination and bring something new to the creative world, it’s vitally important to explore inspiration beyond what’s currently trendy in our own circles. Plus, new inspiration is just plain fun!

These images from Japanese brand FRAPBOIS (I blogged about their Fall line last September) will have you rethinking pattern and color.

    1. That’s a good question, Sofija! I don’t think I really have one single style inspiration. My taste is too eclectic. I’m definitely influenced by Scandinavian minimalism (i.e., neutrals + white, black + white) but also love mixed patterns — like a bright Ukrainian floral scarf paired with a different patterned skirt, or striped dress with floral leggings. How about you?
