I must be secretly longing for some hipstery prints lately because I feel like I’ve been featuring a lot of designers who double as graphic designers or artists. They all seem to like to produce clothing that’s obviously strongly tied to their art backgrounds./training.
Karolina Kling of Kling by Kling is no exception. Her illustrations are the center of her collections, and her bio on the site states that she prefers to be seen as a graphic and product designer rather than a fashion designer.
I do like that she doesn’t just plaster her illustrations on boring shapes like plain tee-shirts or tight pants. Every collection nicely merges creatively cut clothing with her predominantly black and white illustrations, which could be easily worked into an existing wardrobe.
I’ve posted a picture from her four collections. She does some menswear as well.
Sorry guys, I have all day training and then won’t be home until later tonight, so no posts for today. I’ll follow-up with a double post tomorrow.
Hope you enjoyed the post from the husband yesterday!
I received this amazing cape/poncho by Makin Jan Ma yesterday.This isn’t really daily wear because I didn’t wear the shoes or the cape yesterday, but I had to try it on as soon as I got it out of the box. I love it.
Be sure to check out the link above. I’ve posted a few photos below from the ‘Can I Come Inside’ line. Makin Jan Ma isn’t just a clothing designer though, he blends film, photography, poetry, illustration and fashion into a fascinating creative melange. His clothing is created for the characters in his films, but you can buy the clothes his actors wear. An interesting concept.
Here it is looking a little less twisted in the front.
