The game of pairs never gets old – snap is of course my favourite version because of the raw, adrenaline-pumping, thrill-inducing pace of the game. BUT Bianca Luini’s blog, Where I See Fashion is now my new fave.
A fashion student in Milan, Bianca trawls the internet matching beautiful fashion images with other photographs she feels relates to them, whether it’s through colour, shape, concept, anything. I’ve seen blogs similar to this before but they’ve never been executed so sharply and with such stunning results.
The images separately are great, but together they create a fantastic dialogue where they coalesce beautifully and pop off the screen. While I’m not exactly sure how Bianca manages to pull off such brilliant pairings without some sort of pairing machine on hand, I for one am happy to carry on unaware because it’s a glorious, colour coordinated dream to do so.
