I WAS always a skeptic when it came to hypnotism. That was before I saw BlackMilk Clothing’s latest collaboration with the uber talented Lora Zombie.The hypercolourful collection is hard to look away from, featuring 11 printed pieces featuring Zombie’s artworks, including two designs created exclusively for the partnership.
And let’s be honest … you won’t complain about being fixated. The collection is anything but boring.BlackMilk Clothing founder and head designer, James Lillis, said the brand had a strong history of artist collaborations and that the collaboration with Zombie had been on his wish-list for some time.
“Lora’s artwork draws on a number of different influences – pop culture, animals, mythology and lots of bright colours mixed with a darker, edgier side,” he said.
“These influences have always been a huge part of BlackMilk’s culture as well, and we are very excited to bring her artwork to life.”Zombie – a Russian-born artist – is renowned for her unique style. Blending pop culture iconography and cartoon imagery with a touch grungy street elements, her work has turned heads across the globe
The self-professed BlackMilk Clothing fan said she jumped at the opportunity to collaborate with the brand.
“Around three years ago, I saw this amazing dress online with pills printed all over it, and immediately tried to find out where I could buy it,” she said.
“Once I found out it was BlackMilk, and saw all the other cool prints they had, I was hooked.”
Well, that makes two of us Lora.Haven’t had enough of your BlackMilk fix yet? Check out the label’s hot new video on our Facebook page
