It’s interesting how the human mind connects the dots and draws parallels. I’ve been intrigued by the Gabbani Identity by Demian Conrad Design for quite a long time now and it’s obvious why: the graphic patterns, the simple color scheme and yes, the poster of Elizabeth Taylor hanging just so-so in the background of one of the shots is totally up my alley. This branding in particular kept churning in my head and I referred back to it often for inspiration because it felt so perfect to me.
But something kept lingering…it reminded me of something else but I couldn’t quite place it. Then I woke up yesterday morning and it hit me: the Topshop Unique Spring 2012 collection had also used graphic black and white patterns and Elizabeth Taylor. I always say that inspiration is everywhere and I love it when contrasting worlds cross over and inspire us in new, unique ways.
