We met with Anna Sui at her showroom in New York to further discuss the program details. Here she allowed me to choose a print from her Fall 2011 runway collection. I chose this beautiful graphic of an abstract butterfly and made into a two-color print that created a striking result.
Leather Embossed Luggage Tag
No detail in the project went un touched. We created special luggage tags for the collection with her signature butterfly found on her cosmetics.
Tumi Bar Set
The Energy Print for Tumi I developed for the Fall 2012 collection. The print originated from a vintage coat that I styled using color blocks inspired by Piet Mondrain. The print was then applied across many products in Tumi's luggage and travel collections. Each application brought a new view and piece of the print, almost no two of any of the pieces were alike.
Spring 16 Trend
Koos introduced her to Albertus Swanepoel who needed help finishing a small run of hats for Barney’s in 1999. This coincided with Ms. Scully loosing about 5 hats in one week that left her noggin a bit cold. With a new found skill she went about making stylish asymmetrical hats out of left over pieces of wool jersey and cashmere found on the floors of Koos’ studio. These designs warmed her head, and attracted the attention of The Hat Shop in Soho, NYC, Performance Artist Cynthia Hopkins who commissioned her to make a hat. Ms. Scully has been featured in The New York Times style section by Bill Cunningham, New York Magazine who nabbed her pic as a Reason to Love New York, and Japanese Vogue in her hats.
The hats are all 100% Italian Cashmere, no longer left overs sewn on her vintage Singer sewing machine, and finished by hand.
