Brooklyn-based Calico Wallpaper have expanded their extraordinary array of motifs to the world of wearable design.  From their signature marbleized metallic Wabi Bone gold to splatter-like Night Slate (WGSN, 2015), the statement apparel line consists of vibrant colour for both men and women.

Calico’s specialised technique is favoured in the interiors world, their inspiration to move art beyond the frame by experimentation with traditional art forms, and the digitalisation makes their concept truly unique.

By successfully transferring the design elements from homeware to garment design, this collaboration marks as an example of the growing and ongoing relationship between the fashion and the interiors world.

“The details are details. They make the product. The connections, the connections, the connections. It will in the end be these details that give the product its life.”

—Charles Eames
