Eley Kishimoto

Eley Kishimoto, otherwise known as "the patron saints of print," is a company founded by Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto that strives to create designs that are simple yet creative, immune to trends and fads. Eley Kishimoto has gained a reputation for "incisive and intelligent print design" that has graced catwalks around the world via collaborations with Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander McQueen, among others. The first Eley Kishimoto womenswear collection was launched in the mid-90's and was so successful that the line has been continued to this day. More design products followed: wallpapers, furniture, glassware, and more have helped the company expand its consumer outreach and have made the brand attractive to a large audience. Eley Kishimoto is continuing to expand and develop its lines of products, the company's growth and success seeming to have no boundaries.

I was attracted to Eley Kishimoto's current collection of womenswear for the obvious reason. The brand is unafraid of color and mixing prints, two of my favorite things. Of course, these clothes are not for the timid; the designs are certainly quite bold and out-there. The lookbook in particular puts together pieces in unique and innovative ways that may indeed scare some prospective customers away. However, each individual garment is extremely wearable, yet still creative and one-of-a-kind. The silhouettes are rather simple, as the focus here is on the colors and prints. This enables each piece to flatter all sorts of body types, as opposed to the tricky silhouettes of more experimental brands. Overall, the collection is beautiful and extremely cheerful, wonderful to look at when one is anxiously awaiting a monstrous hurricane.

Not ready for the daring colors and prints of Eley Kishimoto's clothing? There are other ways to incorporate the brand into your closet. In fact, the company can whip up a mean batch of brogues.

If you're not one to wear bold clothing and accessories (though I encourage you to try it out!), Eley Kishimoto has found other ways to add color into your life.

  7. Congratulations on your 100th post! That's so exciting :)

    About the clothes can I just say WOW? I love how it feels vintage and quirky with a dash of prim and proper. How affordable can these be though? It's hard to buy too many prints without becoming the print girl.
