The Trifecta

October 22, 2009

Ruben Toledo is known for two things: being married to Isabel Toledo who designed the dress Michelle Obama wore to the Inauguration, and creating stunning fashion illustrations. His most recent project is an excellent collaboration of art, fashion and literature (three of my favorite things!) as he reimagined the covers of some classic lady-centric novels. The books will be $16 each and released during Fashion Week in September.

I would love to see his take on The Great Gatsby and The Bell Jar, which seem to lend themselves to his style nicely. In other Toledo news, the power duo have been offered both a book and an exhibition called Toledo/Toledo: The Marriage of Art and Fashion.
