I recently saw this Instagram as one of “five to follow” in T Magazine under fashion things, and I immediately fell in love with the quirky images and unique idea to curate and style high-fashion items like shoes, bags, clothing, and jewelry into avant garde still-life images.

The faces, figures and arrangements in each illustration are distinctly new in style beyond what the original designer may have intended. Created earlier this year by Pittsburgh-based artist and designer Giulia Scalese, "The Collecteur" is a visual diary of her favorite fashions. I love her eye for color, shape, and graphic motifs, and can’t wait until she posts the next one.
