For A/W 13, YARNZ re-examines the print phenomenon which has been so widely embraced by fashion. With an abundance of digital prints on the market, there has been a strong loss of individuality, craftsmanship, and overall design. So many simple photographs easily mirrored on to dresses, blouses, swimwear, and of course, scarves and bags. YARNZ recaptures the classic beauty of the silk-screening process…creating images (and false images) while playing with positives and negatives. Letting the eye show each person something different.
Yarnz and the Drug Policy Alliance, a non-profit organization advocating for drug policy reform, have joined forces and are pleased to announce The Yarnz Project. A collection of scarves featuring contemporary art produced by Yarnz will benefit the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA.) The collaboration with artists Peter Halley, James Nares, Erik Parker, and Raymond Pettibon.
