I was pleasantly surprised and flattered when I was approached to do an illustration on a L.12.12 tote for LACOSTE. At the time, I was traveling in Morocco and had only a couple of days to submit the designs, so I quickly submitted an abstract Moroccan pattern that I got inspired by. However, I ended up changing my illustration to something that described me a little better. I’ve been very blessed with so many great opportunities since starting Song of Style 5 years ago, and through blogging, I got to go to a lot of wonderful places and I wanted to showcase that on this collaboration with Lacoste. I picked all of my favorite cities that I’ve traveled to since starting Song of Style, that inspired me to keep going. Rio, Barcelona, Florence, Paris, San Francisco, L.A., and New York… I have yet to visit London (I know, I can’t believe it either!) and I went to Seoul after I designed this tote so I might have to do a 2nd version with Lacoste soon!
I’ve been carrying this tote to work for about a month! Since it fits both my laptop, sketchbooks, and giant DSLR camera, it’s perfect for when I’m traveling plus it’s so light and roomy.
Thank you LACOSTE for this great opportunity! xoxo
