As part of our Mother’s Day Campaign, ‘My Mother, My Muse‘, we asked one of our amazingly talented staff members to illustrate a series of 4 stunning images depicting our latest AW18 ranges.

Ana Castro is a digital illustrator living in Perth, Australia, and owns her own freelance illustration business, In a Takeaway Cup.

‘In a Takeaway Cup’ illustrations aim to catch that ‘rush’ feeling we live these days, using a style that looks fresh, quick, easy to do and up-to-date with the latest trends and fashion runway looks.

The Inspiration

Ana explains: “I spent many years using my takeaway-coffee time of the day to flick through fashion magazines and make sketches of the outfits I like, so I decided to post my drawings online to share with people who love fashion and illustration as much as I do.”

Ana’s identifying features in her illustrations are:

  • A minimalist style with a splash of colour
  • Girls with rosy cheeks and extra long, fluttery lashes.

With over 1000 followers across her social channels and collaborations with beautiful fashion brands such as @wearekindred, we knew that she would be the perfect artist to feature in our Mother’s Day campaign.

The Drawings

Ana chose four of our newest AW18 ranges to feature in her illustrations. They depict Manille in Midnight, Lima in Black & Ballerina, and Caresse in Blush.

The women in the drawings are based on classic French female muses:

  • Jane Birkin
  • Juliette Binoche
  • Audrey Tautou
  • Brigitte Bardot
