Costume Design by Christian Joy
We’ve been following Prints All Over Me for quite some time. Basically you can upload and apply your prints to their awesome silhouettes and get a percentage of profits when your items sell. When their latest newsletter popped into my inbox with a collaboration with Christian Joy, I was well, overjoyed (haha.) I knew Christian back in my Williamsburg days when she was making outfits for Karen O. of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. She is amazing and has done also done costumes for Alabama Shakes, Lucius, Santigold, Oh Land and the Klaxons.
Below are a few more favorites from the site. Enjoy!
San Francisco based artist, Rachel Kaye, creates free form paintings which channel the easy going vibe of Northern California surf culture. She recently completed a mural at Facebook’s headquarters and her work can also be found on clothing for Gravel & Gold, as well as Mollusk. (I just picked up one of these.) The intricate patterns are spot on with the current patchwork trend that’s been seen across the runways for Spring 2016. See more of her work here.

Artist Corey Bartle-Sanderson’s project Supermarket Simulacrum shows us fruit in a new light. When speaking to his motivation for the project the artist states: “When we look at everyday objects we don’t stop to think about them, in ways of colour, shape and form, we just accept what they are, no questions are asked. With Supermarket Simulacrum I wanted to challenge this idea.” The project definitely seems to have accomplished it’s goal!
A kick of emerald. A splash of navy. Smooth tan.

Recreation Center is a ceramics studio based in Brooklyn, New York specializing in ceramics, patterns and crazy layouts. Love their Memphis Group influence and the objects themselves.
Bold, graphic prints influenced by an urban aesthetic make their debut on Savannah Hayes’s home collection which features throws, pillows, tea towels, and even etched marble. Hayes decided to launch her own label this October after having designed for Kelly Wearstler, Martha Stewart, and Kravet Fabrics. Her previous employment allowed her to work closely with mills in both India and Turkey, gaining firsthand textile experience.
We’re loving the cozy, graphic throws which would make a great statement in any room. Can we cuddle up in one now, please? Which would you choose?
Proving that art can take inspiration from just about anywhere, artist Kevin Champeny has created a gummy inspired masterpiece. The lighting wonder was commissioned by the home furnishing company Jellio and is available in two sizes. The largest is an impressive color display and uses 5,000 bears, measures 31″ in diameter, and weighs about 50 lbs! No doubt it’s sure to be an amazing conversation piece for any room.
