Miss Van for Anaoana
In beautiful Barcelona I found me this treasure. For those who might not know her Miss Van aka Vanessa Alice Bensimon started spraying our walls aged 18 as an expression of her own feelings and concerns. She used to do it on top of men graffities just to let them now that girls, we rule.
Her major influences are masters Mark Ryden and Junko Mizuno and her main inspiration to create those beautiful, amazing, intriguing “poupees” is definitely the pin-up style.
Lucky us, she has collaborated with Anaoana and released this stunning and delicate clothing line. It might be a bit expensive (prices are 70$-50euros -40 pounds and above) but if you think about the quality of the fabric, the fact that you will be wearing nearly a unic piece and the work behind it then, well, it’s all worth it.
