06 May Urban° | Artists in Residence
South African clothing brand Urban° has been making use of our local illustration talent with their seasonal Artist in Residence project. The initiative sees selected illustrators working alongside the Urban° fashion designers on exclusive Summer and Winter ranges, with the aim of creating unique artwork to be applied to t-shirts, dresses, scarves, jacket linings and other items.
The first Artist in Residence was Lauren Fowler who collaborated on the Summer 2012 “Neon Summer in the City” range.
The Winter 2013 range in collaboration with Andrew Sutherland has recently been launched. Andrew created 3 fonts for the range drawing inspiration from The Little Prince and the African landscpae’s jackal, dassie and starling; the theme being “The Urban Burrower – We are Creatures of Comfort”. The garments are produced in a limited number and only available this season until mid June 2013 in the 15 Urban° stores nationwide.
