D&G Floral Print Skirt

After listening to the psychedelic groove sounds of Tame Impala in the Rokit office, we felt we should pay homage to the bold patterns of the 60s to brighten up a chilly day. To add a little colour into our lives we will introduce you to the beautiful illustrations of Brighton student Rebecca De Havas. Her work draws on references to Frida Khalo's depiction of the female experience and the image of 18th Century royalty, all under the colourful wash of kaleidoscopic print. Her piece The Queen (check out that crushed velvet dress) reminds us of Sofia Coppola's film Marie Antoinette. Pass us the macaroons and decorative patterned fans any day.

Enjoying looking through these psychedelic tinted lenses this afternoon (too much Christmas sugary treats) we have found extraordinary likeness of our D&G floral print skirt with the works of Yayoi Kusama (particularly Dots Obsession and Flowers That Bloom At Midnight). Yep we are starting to see stars and dots....
