Tanya Ling is quite the lady of the moment. She has long been on my radar for her ravishing illustrations of Vuitton’s collections, she has an addictive Instagram feed and a giant assemblage of her line paintings is the sight that greets you on entering Alex Eagle’s inspiring new lifestyle store in South Kensington. Her mixed media work can also currently be seen in her exhibition Sculptures at Darbyshire Framemakers, 19-23 White Lion Street, N1.
And now the art is wearable too. Ling has joined forces with cashmere brand Queene & Belle to produce an offering of made to order knitwear pieces (from £868) featuring Ling’s signature wiggly lines all made in the Hawick factory using local yarns. I love how she couldn’t resist painting over the photo below to turn the press shot into a work of art as well….

(Hmmm, in the UK the red is mysteriously missing…) [EDIT: OK Hafsa just pointed out in the comments that the red is exclusive to the Nars site. Clever!] Continue reading
The Fashion Illustration Gallery has launched its ecommerce site selling these quite wonderful (and reasonably-priced) works of art. As well as one-off illustrations and prints, there are rare vintage magazines featuring the brushstrokes of some of my favourite illustrators including Andy Warhol (above), Richard Bernstein and Christian Berard.
