Love the Toledos.
Love snoods.
Love the Junya Watanabe skirts.

# I have an insane affection for cotton gingham and calico.

Thanks for posting this!


Those cartoon gals are far fiercer than the runway bitches!


That first model from the Anna Sui 2009 Collection is Jourdan Dunn? I don't think so...
The postcards are fantastic, though. :)

I love his work, he's truly talented. I was so excited when I saw his work in Nina Garcia's book.


Fabulous!!!


How do you guys find all this cool stuff? LOVE IT!


LOVE. IT.

Love especially the monkey and the turtle.


These are MAAAAVELOUS!!!! Thanks for the Sunday morning treat guys!

The postcards are very cute. You know, there are a lot of manga artists out there who are great at detailed clothing.. one such artist is Ai Yazawa (who does a pretty popular soap opera-ish comic called "Nana"). I'd love to see their take on some collections as well.


clothes look better on the postcards.


likey likey, mostly mostly.


These are adorable! I love the clothes and the illustrations!


Love them!

OMG ... Ralph Lauren, second look .. . are those .... HAREM PANTS?


Cute.

I'm too lazy to look.


These are great. I love the runway clothes and models and love the take by Toledo.

Funny thing tho - we have a sorta crazy lady in town that wears the same kind of clothes as Junya Watanabe's to garden in. Same type of tops and skirts and shoes, different crazy hats. Who knew she was on to something rather than on something?

Junya Watanabe's collection looks like indigenous people wearing Western clothing.

Beautiful postcards.


Wow, I like the clothes on the postcards so much better than the runway versions! What a wonderful talent!


This is so cool, it reminds me of those old postcards from all over the world. What a treat, thanks, guys.


I love love love Ruben Toledo. Love love love. Always have, always will.

I have such a huge crush on Isabel and Ruben Toledo. They're awesome and so talented too.


These are beautiful!!


I love how they capture those "far-away" lands.


Gorgeous!! I still love old fashioned letters in the mail or a postcard. :)


I really like the Hermès. It vaguely (very, very vaguely) reminds me of Uli's finale connection.


Oooo! These are lovely! Thanks for posting them.


Most of them looks like Indigineous people wearing western clothing

Can we have a least ONE TFS-free post?


There is fashion beyond the boundaries of reality TV shows, folks.


Those illustrations are gorgeous! And the colors are so much more beautiful and vibrant than the colors in the actual clothes.


I must need a man . . . I could have sworn that monkey had a penis! Yep, I went in for a closer look . . . color me BAD!

Love the postcards-tres chic!


AUGH! I must have the Scandanavian folklore stuff! Where's my credit card?!?


The postcards are charming. Such a fan of his work!

The clothes, while all beautiful (especially the Junya Watanabe skirts and tops) look far too much like costumes, especially the way they're styled, to imagine real women wearing them. Okay - they're not all beautiful. The Ralph Lauren looks are fug. Hammer pants? OMG.


I love them!!!


I'm a huge fan of his work. Thanks for this, Tlo!


really pretty! are those postcard available if you get the currne edition of vogue nippon?
