Caran D’Ache Wax Pencils
Caran D’Ache is a famous and renowned brand when it comes to artist pencils. This Swiss brand of coloured pencils is very superior in the way they are manufactured. The texture of the laydown produces richest and silkiest pigments of a permanent. They are lead combined with unbelievable lightfast results. The lightfast aspect of these pencils is what makes them superior to other competitive brands. The fact that Caran D’Ache pencils are light resistant means work produced will never fade.
These pencils are used by all types of designers, artists, architects and creatives. The boxes consist of 76 luminance pencils which are 80% lightfast indicator. Two full-sized blenders which are used to combined colours smoothly together. White pencil is also a great tool for mixing the colour shades together. Caran D’Ache pencils are manufactured in Switzerland.
I prefer to use these pencils for my high-quality coloured or portrait work. I am a great lover of wax pencils, purely because I can get a creamier mix and lay down. These pencils have the smoothest texture so blending is effortless. I like the heaviness and thick wooden casing which makes it stronger against breakage when sharpening. As these are premium pencils my drawing results come out very sharp and crisp.
Versace Sunglasses –Circa 1996
Versace is one of the most iconic Italian family fashion brands of all time. Versace was founded in 1978 by Gianni Versace. Many of the clothing designs and accessory items are represented by Greek Mythology. The most famous logo design is the head of Medusa. She was known for hypnotic abilities to make people fall in love and they became lost forever. The brand exhibits bright and bold colours with the most eccentric of patterns.
The original Versace sunglasses were the most iconic designs made from acetate cellouse which is a plant-based material and is also hyper allogenic. It was used in manufacturing the earliest products in eyewear from around the late 1940s. Acetate is more superior to the plastic brands because it was more robust, flexible and lightweight. Acetate is known for the beautiful transparent designs, bright rich colour and shiny finishes. Acetate is a renewable resource made from cotton and wood fibres and is environmentally friendly.
I chose these glasses because acetate is my favourite type of eyewear. It is a very premium material and is durable. My sunglasses are at this point 25 years old and still in excellent condition. I am a big fan of the Versace brand and Greek Mythology. Medusa’s story was one of my favourite Greek myths of all time. I also have a tattoo of the head of Medusa. I am quite an eccentric yet flamboyant character and these sunglasses match my personality. I buy into the family values of Versace and believe that is why their products are so popular. I believe family values create a strong brand image and vision. My sunglasses are a famous pair from a music video by Biggy Smalls who was a famous Hip Hop rapper in the late 90s.
