Art: Ofra Amit
She is a children book illustrator, but her work is so versatile it appeals to a wider range of audience, which would be everybody :). Even though her colors are more mournful the moods are clear and feelings conveyed. I wish I found more about her on the internet, but since I didn't have a look at her portfolio site it's beautiful: http://www.ofra-amit.com/portfolio/

Rarely has rummaging about fashion sites brought to me so much visual joy as when I landed on Alena Akhmadullina's site.(Here: AA) You maybe never heard of her but she's on scene for a longer time, maybe more known (or famous)  in her native Russia. So much vibrant colors and especially important to me - color shade combinations, best thing since Miu Miu. Amidst all these fine looking photos I chose the one from her  Pre-Fall 2017 collection. I think I like every single piece in that collection ( which is a bit darker than the rest, its a fall collection after all so...). Modern classic and Russian traditional decorative motives on pajama looking outfits and bathrobe like mantles: adorable.

 Hand-painted accessories, tender laces, silk, and fringe, some traditional pearl embroidery, and I don't even like folk, and it's not, it's beyond folk. I am actually reminded of the 19th beginning of the 20th-century fashion when ladies of society wore kimonos and dresses made from kimono fabric. Lounging, tea parties, decadence :), leisure, and painters like Albert Stevens or  Frederick Carl Frieske painting their muses in silk floral robes. Even Monet painted his wife in red kimono.


Also while touching the subject of parlours and leisure, do you consider leisure as idling around or similar to this:
“The only thing one can give an artist is leisure in which to work. To give an artist leisure is actually to take part in his creation.” 
- Ezra Pound - 

“This is very important -- to take leisure time. Pace is the essence. Without stopping entirely and doing nothing at all for great periods, you're gonna lose everything...just to do nothing at all, very, very important. And how many people do this in modern society? Very few. That's why they're all totally mad, frustrated, angry and hateful.” 
- Charles Bukowski -
