It made perfect sense that on a trip to Tokyo, a little quick shoot with our “Tokyo Trash” leggingswas in order. After all, it is the city that gave birth to the initial idea of doing the City Trashseries, as well as every item featured in the collaged print on the leggings was all found or procured on the streets of Tokyo.
I love the energy of the graphic layered directly into the frenetic, non stop pulse of the city streets at night.
The shoot also features the first appearance of the graphic tote bags we are working on.

PEACE OUT – Aubrey Beardsley
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.

Deeeeeep inside our psyche
Our dreams and nightmares are a constant source of pure unadulterated ideas filled with endless possibilities. These glimpses into our own psyches are a reminder of the massive creativity we posses. We just need to look.
