Artful Apparel by Caro & Cy & Julie Springer
Artists Cy & Caro have made their appearance on this blog before for their black graphic tattoo work, but today I want to share their collaboration with German designer Julie Springer on a limited series of gorgeous scarves & leggings that bear their signature artwork.
For this series, they experimented with discharge paste (which removes colors from the textile) and different fabric combinations, including jersey, wool and silk. All are silk-screen printed. The result is one-of-a-kind artful apparel with a special feel to it for a visual and tactile experience. Some of the designs were also printed on paper for an exhibit planned over the next couple of years.
While the artists say the collaboration was largely sparked by the desire to display their work in another medium, the scarves and leggins are available for purchase. Prices range from 60 Euro (approx. $80) to 120 Euro (approx. $160).
