Day # 7 Lolita

“Lolita, when she chose, could be a most exasperating brat. I was not really quite prepared for her fits of disorganized boredom, intense and vehement griping, her sprawling, droopy, dopey-eyed style, and what is called goofing off — a kind of diffused clowning which she thought was tough in a boyish hoodlum way. Mentally, I found her to be a disgustingly conventional little girl. Sweet hot jazz, square dancing, gooey fudge sundaes, musicals, movie magazines and so forth — these were the obvious items in her list of beloved things. The Lord knows how many nickels I fed to the gorgeous music boxes that came with every meal we had.” – Prof. Humbert Humbert

Today I wanted to do something fun, maybe not wearable, but definitely fun. I decided to do Lolita, who has been a source of great inspiration for designers in the past with her child-like attitude and her tomboyish ways. Nabokov’s Lolita is a story about lust, hypocrisy and obsession; a sad story of incomprehensible characters and the destiny of a girl who, by the plots of life, ended up a victim of a monster and, as a consequence, a monster herself.
