Crazy About: Rene Gruau

You may have noticed this image in the Flor catalog:



I cannot tell you how much time I spent tracking down the poster in the background, hoping that it's some kind of rare Audrey Hepburn treasure. And it is! As it turns out, it's a vintage ad titled 'Red Raincoat for Audrey Hepburn' created by fashion illustrator/graphic designer Rene Gruau. I love the simple elegance of his work - graceful lines, splashes of bright colors. Amazing.




Once advertisements for haute couture fashion and famous Parisian nightlife spots, his vintage posters are perfect for young art collectors and fashion fiends alike. You can purchase them here.

Also of note in the Flor catalog is that fabulous chain table - love it! (Is it just me, or does anyone else spend more time looking at the decor and beautiful vignettes than the carpet tiles?)
