Ruben Toledo “Tales of Colette”
by Kenny Campbell

213 rue Saint – Honore
Paris 75001

Colette the fab fashionable store in Paris where you can have lunch, buy an outfit, and spray yourself in FlowerBomb the new perfume by Victor & Rolf are having an exhibition until the 2nd of April of Ruben Toledo’s ‘Tales of Colette’. These witty illustrations of wide eyed cute girls in sexy colorful outfits are fun and inspiring.
Ruben Toledo was born in Havana, Cuba in 1961. He is at once a painter, sculptor, illustrator, fashion chronicle and critic, and surrealist wit. The changing posture of fashion and the body language of style are two of his constant obsessions and appear as themes throughout his work.
