“Print the World” – Eley Kishimoto

Since the mid-1990’s, husband and wife duo Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto have become well known for their innovative use of unique prints, which have not only featured in their womenswear collections, but also on the likes of motorbikes, beer glasses, luggage and cosmetics, through a range of high profile collaborations. For their Spring/Summer 2012 womenswear line, entitled ‘Toy Town Eden’, ‘Eley Kishimoto’ continue with their sterling reputation as the ‘Patron Saints of Prints’.

In a collection inspired by a fairy tale interpretation of the Garden of Eden, includes digital florals, graphic leafy prints, quirky ‘ravioli’ checks and even a monochromatic snake reaching for a bit of the forbidden apple. The impressive array of vibrant prints features on girly smock dresses, cropped cocoon jackets, three-quarter length culottes, over-sized t-shirts, above the knee A-line skirts , light summer anoraks and even on tights.

For the ‘Toy Town Eden’ collection, Eley Kishimoto have teamed up with jewellery label Tatty Devine, to create their first line of Perspex jewellery. The collaboration saw Tatty Devine using digital printing techniques for the first time – they picked out individual elements of each print and printed them directly onto three-dimensional shiny Perspex, which gave the illusion that the print was popping out of the jewellery. The prints of Eley Kishimoto’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection work perfectly with the Tatty Devine kitsch signature style – stand out pieces of the jewellery collaboration include over-sized disc earrings featuring the ‘Ravioli’ print and a snake pendant with a bitten apple charm, the snake was digitally printed using Eley Kishimoto’s motif and the apple is embellish with a single red Swarovski crystal.

So without further ado we present the Eley Kishimoto Spring/Summer 2012 collection…Enjoy!
