Artist Steven Wilson collaborated with Karl Lagerfeld on the latest release for S/S 2017 collection, featuring unique designs based on CMYK color printing.
From an article in WWD:
Karl Lagerfeld is getting the color printing treatment. The designer has tapped artist and illustrator Steven Wilson to collaborate on a limited-edition capsule collection of clothing and accessories featuring designs made using layers of cyan, magenta and yellow — the hues that form the basis of the printing process.
Wilson created graphics including a portrait of Lagerfeld, his cat Choupette, the brand logo, a camera and a pair of sunglasses. They feature on items such as an embroidered satin bomber jacket, sweatshirts, jeans, a tote bag and an assortment of accessories that will go on sale in stores and online on April 1.
The U.K.-based illustrator has worked with brands including Nike, Adidas, Levi’s, Converse and Stussy, but said he rarely gets name-checked. “All too often my work is used anonymously under a brand name, so to have the opportunity to have my name and work used alongside Karl Lagerfeld is very special,” he noted.
