collars up


pve design illustration - for JMcLaughlin Fall Advertisement
"Collars up" ~ This fine gal is sporting a fun casual fall look - a shirt with the collars "popped' - a boyfriend vest in merino wool and a generous "Aken" tote constructed of wool felt billiard cloth. Grosgrain ribbon touches give a fun preppy accent to a gingham shirt. My illustration was in Quest Magazine for J.McLaughlin.
Do you wear your collars popped or not?

I pop my blazer collar more than I do a blouse.
I love this illustration; all the colors go so well together. Very sophisticated in a casual sort of way. Well done again, Patricia!

I always love your illustrations and today love the one for J. McLaughlin.

I love the look of the popped collars on others but always feel a bit over the top when I do it myself. I must work on popped collars and pashminas this season!

My daughter's entire class popped their collars last week in honor of their teacher's birthday. I never actually have a collar to pop--can't bear collars!!

miss cavendish said...

Oops--not true! I'm always popping the collar on my trench coat and jacket . . .

Another fabulous illustration! I pop my collars on polo shirts and some jackets. This was so "in" back in the 80s when I was in high school and college.

Love your illustrations!

I like the idea of popping up my collar, but end up feeling silly, so down they go!

Debra said...

Absolutely to your pop the collar question...my husband does too. He was gifted a t-shirt once that read "My other shirt has its collar popped."

Beautiful illustration!
