For Let’s Draw! Elena Ciuprina takes inspiration from the gypset glamour of Ibiza in the ’60s and transporting it to now, the capsule follows a group of friends living their best summer on the ‘White Island’. Free to do whatever they want and go wherever they wish, by day they sunbathe and go shopping at local bohemian markets. In the evening? They party until dawn. It’s a hot, haute hippy vibe.
Elena Ciuprina captures scenes from this remember-forever summer vacation in her distinctive illustrative style.
The classic white logo tee is collaged with an illustration of a woman in an oversized hat; ombré styles feature an image of the girl gang sunbathing, or a simple floral illustration, a nod to the flower markets they’ve visited.
