Helen Bullock will be seated by the window in the cosy Bruton Place studio covering the second day of Paris collections. Helen’s lineup for the day include Rick Owens, Louis Vuitton, Yohji Yamamoto and Dries van Noten.
In her selection of looks, Helen is inspired by the angles in the clothing created by the model’s body movements and the interesting skin tones produced by the sculptural make up and super lighting. She divulges that she has found covering menswear challenging in that she could not ‘hide behind’ her drawings in the same way she could with the extravagant shapes of womenswear. Consequently Helen has had to push her illustration style further to capture the details and silhouettes of the menswear collections, ultimately solidifying her bold statements.
Make sure to catch Helen’s uploads from 16 January 2013, with striking illustrations for Valentino, Raf Simons and Mugler. Also keep an eye on the Tumblr and collections pages throughout the day to see Helen’s live coverage of the Paris menswear.
