Fear and Loathing in NYC

Luella Bartley has been getting lots of press on her geek chic, Spring/Summer '08 collection inspired by the 2001 movie, "Ghost World." I netflixed the movie to really feel where Luella's head was at and posted my favorite looks below.


I was inspired to assign myself a project (as if I don't have enough) and sketch a collection based on a movie. The first movie that came to my mind was "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." Don't ask me why, I'd only seen the movie once before and that was probably nine years ago. I revisited the movie and as it turns out this was the perfect choice to base a collection off of. With menswear and mixing prints trending right now, this inspiration felt very right. If I were the creative director of a fashion house I could base many more looks off Fear and Loathing than the four preliminary sketches below.
