They’re here! The new Skinny laMinx fabric collection for 2014/15 is out, inspired by plants in the city (read about the inspiration here) and called Paradise is Here.
The collection consists of four prints, each in three colourways, and this is what they’re all about:
Zig Zag– in brazil, tarmac & pine nut
This design was conceived when I spotted palm fronds poking through the slats of a wooden fence, softening a barrier, and creating an amusing impression of curious plants on the other side, wondering what lay on the other side of the fence.
At first glance, this design is epilepsy-inducing – all jagged, crazy, noisy, jazzed up shapes – but with a shift in perspective, it evokes the soothing shadow play of palm fronds.
The rough, scratchy zig-zag lines of this design make up exuberant, fanning leaf shapes that promise shady escape.
Airborne – in tarmac, sage & strelizia
Exuberant organic shapes with echos of 50’s design take playful flight – like falling leaves or journeying seeds – across a featureless grid.
