Following the 2014 launch of its first hand-printed wallpaper collection, pattern expert Eley Kishimoto has unveiled its AW15 fashion collection. Entitled A Wallflower’s House Party, the collection features 12 unique patterns taken from the wallpaper collection which is originally inspired by the studio’s fashion archives of over 22 years. As part of the new collection, EK has also collaborated with two Scottish knitwear companies, Roam and ERIBÉ on an exclusive selection of UK-manufatured lambswool blankets and hand-knitted garments.
Reinforced by its long-standing expertise in pioneering printmaking, Eley Kishimoto’s new AW15 range, coupled with its hand-printed wallpapers, offer a total wall-to-toe coordination in your favourite EK pattern. The studio sees no distinction between garment and wall surface, both can be adorned with the same pattern under the motto “Print the World”. “Why be a wallflower at someone else’s party when you can be the belle of the ball at your own?” says Wakako Kishimoto.
Like the wallpaper collection, A Wallflower’s House Party displays the quality of craftsmanship, with all fabrics printed by EK’s London-based in-house team.
Teamed with simple and relaxed shapes in natural bases, the new Eley Kishimoto’s hand-printed, bold graphic prints render visual strength that embodies the aura of human warmth, all to be taken for personal pleasure.
Collaboration with ERIBÉ
The colourful knitwear experts collaborate on a joint-label capsule hand-knit range for AW15. Subtly echoing two of Eley Kishimoto’s most iconic wallpaper designs, Vanity Cats and Light On Lattice, you can now wear your home on your sleeves. With a shared love of pattern and colour, the collaboration results in hand-knitted garments worthy of heirloom status, each piece being as bespoke and thoughtfully made as each EK’s hand-printed wallpaper.
Collaboration with Roam
Nestled among the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders is Roam; devoted to colour, craft and British manufacture. Eley Kishimoto has teamed up its bold wallpaper patterns with Roam’s traditional techniques to create a range of six blanket designs to drape over your sofa or your shoulders.
A Wallflower’s House Party from Eley Kishimoto is available to buy as of June 2015. Prices on request.
