Chances are you've seen Tokyo based illustrator Chico Hayasaki's work; it's been featured in Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, and Cosmo Girl. She's also illustrated major ad campaigns for Bare Essentials, Le Sportsac, Nordstrom, and the LaPerla showroom in Milan. Chico was a guest here back in 2006 and we became friends and stayed in touch ever since. I thought her delicate and feminine Butterflies illustration would be a perfect choice for this week's art inspired fashion post.
