Calico ventures into fashion with a beautiful collection
Often neglected in favor of wall painting because of the dated designs and complicated application, wallpapers are not thought of as the most contemporary ways of adorning bare walls. In the recent years, Calico has been busy working on to shake off any vintage-y connotations attached to the wallpaper universe. Collaborating with fresh talents as well as well-settled names of the design scene, their collection is singular on the market including lush, elegant, yet playful paper rolls.
Seeing the popularity of their designs, and the effort and work the creators put into each collection, the company decided to take a brave step, a step away from their home grounds, and initiated a peculiar collaboration. Using the service of digital fashion platform Print All Over Me, they translated their wallpaper prints to clothing items.
Though a surprising venture upon first instance, seeing the result makes one think why this collection was not born earlier; what looks spectacular on walls will surely work on the fashion scene as well. The signature marble-like Wabi Bone, the ombré Aurora, and the gold-scattered Night Slate were applied to women and men clothing items, as well as a series of select home accessories.
The whimsical patterns led to an eerie, elegant, and chic collection, that has that certain touch of decaying luxury so characteristic of Calico’s aesthetics. The line is available exclusively at Swords-Smith's deisgnated section, and is very limited, so wallpaper and/or fashion lovers should be quick to grab something extraordinary.
