Mexican Maven Fashion

The BellJar Spring 2012 Lookbook is Inspired by Frida Kahlo

— February 27, 2012 — Fashion
The BellJar Spring 2012 collection and catalog takes a lot of cues from surrealist Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. From the floral hair accessories to the vibrant outfits, all that is missing is her signature unibrow to complete the looks. Nevertheless, the interpretation is entirely contemporary.

The BellJar Spring 2012 lookbook was shot in San Francisco, California. The owner, Sasha Darling, says, "This spread was shot in my new Spanish-style Silverlake apartment. I've always had an appreciation for Frida Kahlo. She was such a strong, talented woman who endured so much, and expressed it through her art and style. BellJar's rich patterns, and my lovely new apartment lent themselves to paying an homage to her as an idol."

The BellJar Spring 2012 lookbook is rife with bold patterns, chunky jewelry and old world glamor.
Trend Themes
1. Bold Patterns - Disruptive innovation opportunities can be found in the development of new printing technologies or textile designs that push the boundaries of bold patterns in fashion.
2. Chunky Jewelry - Opportunities for disruptive innovation lie in the creation of sustainable and eco-friendly materials for chunky jewelry that maintain the same aesthetic appeal.
3. Old World Glamor - Disruptive innovation can be explored through the combination of vintage fashion styles with modern technologies to create a new wave of nostalgic and glamorous fashion.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion - The fashion industry has an opportunity to embrace new design techniques and materials that align with the bold patterns and old world glamor aesthetic trends.
2. Printing Technology - The printing technology industry can capitalize on the demand for innovative printing techniques that allow for the creation of bold patterns in textiles and fashion.
3. Jewelry - The jewelry industry can explore sustainable materials and manufacturing processes to meet the demand for chunky jewelry while reducing environmental impact.
