Scrapbook

This is my web scrapbook, where I collect all sorts of interesting and beautiful bits I come across, mostly online.

‘May’ 1953  by dovima_is_devine_II on Flickr.

Via Flickr:
In “May,” flowering grasses and wild clover are rendered in silk floss on organza. This “simple” patterning of meadow-gone-to-weed is composed of the tiniest French knots and the meticulously measured stitches of the hand embroiderer, suggesting that for Dior, it was not only that beauty resides in the most rustic, but also that the most successful artifice is a beguiling naivété.
