Beware of a Man’s Shadow
Illustrator Tara Dougans’ Buzzing Short Film Celebrates the Debut Men’s Fashion Week in London
An excerpt from the original blog post on Nowness:
Inspired by the Burmese proverb “beware of a man’s shadow and of a bee’s sting,” Canadian-born, London-based illustrator Tara Dougans juxtaposes the graphic beauty of the honey-making insect with a selection of striking menswear designs from the F/W12 season. In anticipation of the first ever London Men’s Fashion Week, which kicks off June 15, Dougans illustrated some of her favorite designs, including Alber Elbaz and Lucas Ossendrijver’s striped three-piece suit for Lanvin, Riccardo Tisci’s star-emblazoned sweater for Givenchy, Walter Van Beirendonck’s trompe l’oeil prints, and Kim Jones’s travel blanket-inspired bomber jackets for Louis Vuitton.
