Maybe if you went to fashion school, or are just more aware of things generally, you already know about Antonio Lopez, fashion-illustrator extraordinare--but Id never heard of him until I saw some of his work on the Wildfox blog yesterday. The pictures above are from taken a story he did for British Vogue in 1968. So cool those girls are, and with such attitude--as are the ladies in this next spread, which I like even better, from Elle Magazine in 1967.
Such nonchalance. Apparently, no one better captured the feel of the sixties, seventies, or eighties in fashion illustration. Im not as big of a fan of his work from the eighties, as its not a style I respond to as favorably... but you cant deny how eighties they are. Id love to see more of his work!
