Terrific textures!

11 Feb 2015

Texture has a coveted place in fashion. It not only plumps up the look of a product but adds a tactile element to it, breaking the boring monotony of an endlessly smooth veneer. Simply put -the Yin and Yang – the smooth with the rugged and the bold with the minute. You see, balance is after all the key to harmony in life…

Yelling out YELLOW

03 Nov 2014

Притягательность смокинга
