LISA KING POP-UP 23-31/05/13
‘Steel Flora’ by Lisa King is the first collection of unisex accessories by the London based print designer. Born from the creation of two contrasting prints of Screws and Flora, her canvas is silk or cashmere blend scarves, personalised leather bags with printed linings and industrial inspired jewellery.
Lisa’s skills as an exquisite print creative have seen her work with a prestigious roll call of designers, from Boudicca and Diane Von Furstenberg, to Calvin Klein and Armani. She honed her craft with stylist (and long-term Kylie Minogue collaborator) William Baker and Judy Blame, culminating in a commission to work on the centre piece dress for the Victoria and Albert museum’s Kylie Minogue: Image of a pop star exhibition in 2007. This spring she also launch a printed shoe collaboration with heritage British brand Clarks Originals.
Lisa prints her linings herself by hand in a studio in south London and the rest of the collection is sourced and made in England, supporting British manufacturing.
Lisa King’s first pop-up shop opens at Shoreditch’s BOXPARK on May 23rd.
