Well who knew that sugar, glitter and candy could make such vibrant art? Australian artist Tanya Schultz, the mastermind behind Pip & Pop, employs these tools and other materials including plastic flowers, and other such crafty things – to make her dreamy wonderland installations. Collecting bits and bobs on her travels she meticulously pieces together detailed works that are inspired by “notions of abundance, utopian dreams and fleeting pleasure.” In this particular installation, entitled Through A Hole In The Mountain, Schultz employs everything from paints to masking tape and the results are impressive to say the least!

Viktor & Rolf brought 17th century Dutch paintings to life by literally dressing their models in the artwork. After each model walked the runway, they were “undressed” by V and R and their wearable art piece was hung on the wall. Victor & Rolf have decided to take a turn towards a more expressively artistic runway going forward, using this collection as a jumping off point. I found a few Dutch paintings that were featured in the show, including the below still life on the final look.

It is one of our dreams to adorn an outdoor space with our patterns. We’ve already done this in interior spaces and loved how our designs work in three dimensions. So we were very inspired by this installation in which a trio of art students from Klasse Lobbert in Germany turned a boring utilitarian structure into a magical public sculpture. The students cut triangles of Acrylglas to mimic the the look of stained glass.

Carmel Snow’s nomadic life lends itself well to her culture-clashing style of design. Originally from California, Snow has settled for the moment in Berlin where she incorporates social, cultural, and geographical patterns into her work. Besides forward driven prints, innovative knitwear techniques also make an appearance in vivid, pop colors giving a 3-D touch to her creations. See more of her work here such as a quilt temple which casts delicate shadows or additional designs from her Moon Desert Collection.

Loving the 2015 collection from Kip & Co! Each pattern is a work of art on it’s own but can also be mixed and matched to create a riot of vibrant, bohemian colors. Adding a piece from this collection is sure to brighten any room.

Raoul Dufy

When researching print styles for Spring 2017, I was reminded of the hand of French painter, Raoul Dufy. Active in the early part of the last century through the 1950s, his textiles designs exhibit a flowing brush style perfect for a breezy summer day. His paintings often capture scenes of the French Riviera with hints of pattern dabbled here and there. Don’t you love the palm trees? I’d love a print made with them.
