!! OMG, R.I.P. designer Eiko Ishioka !!

The innovative Japanese art director Eiko Ishioka has died after a battle with pancreatic cancer, according to The New York Times. She was 73. Even if you weren’t familiar with her otherworldly body of work, you no doubt came across it. She created memorable costumes for feature films such as Bram Stoker’s Dracula and The Cell, Broadway productions M. Butterfly and Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, and collaborated with musicians Björk and Grace Jones.
She also made forays into the world of advertising, most famously for Japanese retailer Parco for whom she created an ad in which actress Faye Dunaway silently peels and eats a hard-boiled egg. Watch that above and check out “Cocoon,” her 2002 music video for Björk, below.
