KITTY JOSEPH AW12

This season I worked with the uber talented newcomer Kitty Joseph. Kitty has not long graduated from the RCA with a bold, bright, printed textile collection. Her two tone printed perspex glasses caught my eye and encouraged a collaboration with Piers Atkinson for his SS12 ' Hot Voodoo' collection. Since then I have followed Kitty closely and enjoyed the chance to work with her on her AW12 collection.

This season Kitty continues to explores her love for printed textile design and, inspired by her own hand painting, Kitty translates these ideas into digital and engineered prints. Fabrics range from stretch velvet, jersey and mesh, to thick neoprene with industrial zips. Long sleeves and a high neck create chic body con silhouettes, whilst contrasting the more aggressive outline of the neoprene. Working alongside the collection is an exciting range of 'snow globe' inspired accessories (perspex sunglasses, tube/hoop earrings, bracelets and necklaces all housing some really cool, fun glitter). I need this whole collection with blue glitter everywhere!
