Wien by endlessteatime Wien by endlessteatime
There'll be a Lolita tea party held in Vienna in September and the organisers are holding a contest in which they're looking for an illustration for booklets provided at the event. The theme was combining Lolita fashion with Vienna and I felt like participating. What came to my mind was the art of Gustav Klimt, viennese music and Wiener Kaffeehauskultur, viennese coffee house culture.

I guess I went a little overboard with the colours, patterns and golden ink but I had pretty much fun during the process.

In some ways the combination of Japanese comic style and Klimt is a interesting connection to  "Jugendstil" (the style that Klimt represented) since Art Nouveau found amongst other sources its inspiration in traditional japanese art. In case: Beautifully crafted!

WHAT! ...and no credit/mention of Vladimir Nabokov? (one of the greatest writers of the 20th C....)

I should have mentioned the following in the description but I would've never expected this piece to be seen by many more people other than my watchers, who are mostly familiar with Lolita fashion, let alone become a DD!
The name "Lolita" for this fashion style is misleading and often leads to the misconception that it has something to do with Nabokov's famous novel. However, Lolita fashion is loosely based on the aesthetics of a young girl or lady from the 18th to 19th century (though the silhouette is comparable to 1950s fashion). By which I mean, modesty and a a certain vintage appeal are key points to the style (though there are substyles that aren't that tied to the vintage part anymore).
As for why the style is named like that, nobody really knows. It's a japanese youth fashion style (whose male equivalent - "ouji" - translates to "prince"). the Japanese aren't all that familiar with western culture and it might very well be possible that someone just decided "Lolita" to be a cute girls' name and went with it.

Ich hab auch ab und zu den Eindruck, dass es gar nicht so besonders viele zeichnende Lolitas hier auf dA gibt (besonders Lolitas, die Lolita zeichnen).
Auf einen schnellen Blick in deine Galerie kann ich nur sagen, dass du dich sicher nicht blamiert hättest! ;)

This is beautiful. Aside from the elegant Klimt influence, I love how you chose to draw understated (elegant) Lolita girls without the OTT hair and dangling plastic detritus. They look kind and down to the earth.

Lovely.

Thank you very much! The tea party was co-hosted by Innocent World and my personal style leans towards classic Lolita, so it was only natural to me to go for a simpler classical style. Plus, OTT-ness of Klimt's art nouveau is more than enough, anyway.
