am under the impression that the folks over at Free People’s blog have a fascination with hands like me. I have found another hand image from their blog, that I would like to share here. It is a collage of hands from fashion sketches that I think are very elegant, very French. The hands in fashion sketches tend to be more feminine and thin than the average female hand (if such a thing exists), I guess because they should complement the beautiful clothes as well as possible.
These sketches don’t really remind me of any real hands, they look a bit cartoony, they remind me of the style of “grown-up” comic books and also a bit of some Japanese manga. The hands are extremely thin and the fingers very long, hands that I bet any designer would dream of picking up their designs, because they make everything look so elegant.
