Brazilian graphic designer and illustrator Antonio Rodrigues Jr created these wonderful hand-painted illustrations for a series entitled The Great Lookbook of Urban Bugs. Each delicate insect has been outfitted in an ensemble featuring the signature style and colors of various fashion brands, from Levi Strauss to United Colors of Benetton. There’s even a fly dressed in lingerie from Victoria’s Secret.
