As a fashion illustrator in the 60's and 70's, Antonio Lopez was famous for his caught moment, journalistic approach to his art. I came across this particular image and it was love at first sight. From the colors, to the tights and the tan lines, I can't get enough. I then went down what they call a "rabbit hole" within the internet and discovered some of his earlier works, which have been praised by the likes of Andy Warhol and Karl Lagerfeld.

Check out more of his beautiful work here (as well as an intimate self-portrait).
