We’ve seen a wealth of lovely inspirational imagery recently that fits with the ‘see through chic’ trend.
“The origin of this trend stems from a highly tech ruled world where we feel increasingly scanned. In today’ s life we face a constant correlation of security and surveillance with the human body being scanned at an airport when we travel, while interacting on the internet or tracked by hidden street cameras.”
“It is a movement that invites to discover and explore in a different way, like looking underneath the surface and being marvelled.”
“The trend is translated into fashion with cloudy and light-as-air transparencies, layering of blurry x-rayed images on tulle, peekaboo panels on silk and airy fabrics with a feel of lightness and delicacy.
Applied colours are b&w and charcoal with a stronger accent and referring to radiographs, whereas in fashion, this trend is decoded with more feminine shades with the aim to underline transparency and softness in Pale Pink, Blush, Eggplant, Aqua and Taupe."
“You ‘ll find this trend mainly in photography, art, graphic design and fashion.”
Indeed you will – and here are some amazing examples we’ve spotted recently:

Our creative team of stylists, photographers and CGI artists are constantly scouring the internet for inspiration. Our regular ‘Creative Sources’ blog posts package up all the recent articles and images from various online sources that have inspired - us - our work - and now… hopefully you.
This week it’s all about ‘Simple, Clever, Cool’ - all the simple, clever, cool interiors products that have caught our eye. We can't wait to use some of these for inspiration for upcoming lifestyle photography and CGI.

At this historic moment, as the first close up pictures of Pluto are beamed to us from NASA’s New Horizon's Space Craft we thought we’d share some of our ‘Cosmic’ styling inspirations.
The ‘Cosmic’ trend has been breaking over the last year – you can see it within fashion (see below) – and below we’ll show you some of the home décor and interiors influenced by a new wave of excitement in our universe.
What with the release of Interstellar last year – and the new Star Wars later this year – and oh, wait a minute, in the real (out of this) world – Rosetta mission's comet landing, and the climax of a 3 billion mile journey to the furthest (demoted) planet Pluto… The cosmos is in our consciousness…
We hope you like some of these great objects, artefacts and inspirational images.

These lovely, creative compositions recently caught our eye while scanning our many ‘creative sources’.
These collages – feel like a very modern and sexy interpretation of the pioneering and influential 80’s design group’s work – all created from stationery items – including rubbers, drawing pins and post-its.

Largely popularised by Tom Dixon, Copper has been in the shiny spotlight for interiors for quite some time now -
it’s an essential prop for adding a touch of luxury to our photography and CGI
But… our ‘Creative Sources’ point out a skip around
the Periodic Table. Brass and Bronze are
the new essential luxurious elements.

The ‘Geometric’ trend has been one that we’ve been utilising when styling for some of our lifestyle product photography and CGI photography.
It has a simple complexity that demonstrates a considered approach to interior design – and one that many of our design led client’s customers aspire to recreate.
Here’s some squares, circles, triangles, lines, pyramids, repeated patterns etc. from our favorite blogs and internet sources that have ‘drawn’ our attention over the last week.
Bold and bright colours are also amongst our current trend focuses – combined with these geometric lines – these ceramics are gorgeous!
