The Grace Jones spell

FullSizeRender-3

 

FullSizeRender-2

Last September I got a chance to see Grace Jones in LA at The Hollywood Bowl. The show and her on stage presence was easily one of the really great performances I have ever witnessed. Well in her 60’s at this point, Grace Jones was as dynamic and mind blowing as ever. Wearing nothing more then bikini bottoms, some incredible head pieces and white body paint, she was a true force of nature. No need for giant video backdrops or armies of dancers. It was just about as captivating a performance as I have ever seen.

 

About a week after, I started to sketch ideas that were very much inspired by Grace’s “body paint outfit”. These water colour sketches eventually made their way into some new graphics for our leggings. This new mini collection release features three designs in the spirit of the one and only – Grace Jones.

PEACE OUT – Aubrey Beardsley

self-portait

 

One of our all time favourite leggings releases is called “Dark Sixties” featuring the artwork of the one and only – Aubrey Beardsley. The title refers more to the feel of the design which reminded us of the more dark and mysterious aspects of the “hippie” generation.

Aubrey Beardsley was a Victorian era English illustrator and along with Oscar Wilde, a leading figure in the aesthetic movement.  He produced a massive body of some of the most elegant and unique artwork ever during his brief lifetime. He was only 25 years old when he died, which makes his accomplishments that much more mind blowing.

His craftsmanship and style were an obvious influence on 60’s counter culture pop and poster art. We wanted to release a legging that somehow paid tribute to that lineage. This Beardsley image perfectly encapsulates a certain late 60’s vibe of sexuality, drugs and a certain darkness seeping into the mainstream consciousness.

Images below are a selection of of Aubrey Beardsley’s work, followed by a couple of examples of psychedelic poster art from the late 60’s that clearly bear his influence.

The process of creating and designing these leggings, was fairly involved and required us to actually re create by hand, additional panels of line artwork that had to perfectly match the Aubrey Beardsley look and feel. Harder then in looks. We wanted the image to flow from one leg onto the other as a fluid drawing would.

Some Product Lookbook “re imagined”

I recently got an email with this beautiful collection of images from our last major look book campaign with the incredible team of Martina + Reem. More then just frequent collaborators, they have become our good friends. Their enthusiasm, joy and love of their subjects and the process of photography itself, can be clearly seen in all their work. This particular group of images is no different. Not merely satisfied with shooting a look book, they went back into the original shoot, found previously unseen and unused images and re worked/re imagined them into this very magical and slightly surreal collection of photos. Enjoy.

What inspires us: Newton’s Eye

newton

 

Helmut Newton is just one of those people whose work I have had a love affair with, practically my whole life.  Really, what’s not to like? Beautiful people, photographed beautifully, in beautiful and seductive settings. His photographs are a sort of an affirmation of life. They seem to be saying – “Yes, life can be beautiful and glamorous, and that’s just how it’s supposed to be!”

Tantalum Magazine – Odessa

Martina + Reem are very much in our creative family. Aside from being absolutely lovely humans and frequent collaborators, they are some of the most talented and hardest working creatives around. We have also had the pleasure of working with them on a capsule collection featuring some of their more ethereal and abstract photography.

A beautiful editorial featuring many of the pieces from our collaboration was recently published by Tantalum Magazine.
