Shoplifter x & Other Stories Collab

Trawling the internet for colourful, wearable art earlier (as you do), I checked my go-to site for affordable quirky chic. A flash of a multi-coloured anorak appeared. My excitement rose, until I saw that said anorak of beauty had sold out. It's designed by Shoplifter, New York based visual artist from Iceland who's collection is playful, textured and surprisingly wearable.

I love the T-shirt dress, sweater and leggings, which could all be paired with wardrobe staples to make a statement. Shoplifter has worked for several years exploring the use and symbolic nature of hair, and its visual and artistic potential. She sees hair as the ultimate self-created thread. Hair is an original, creative fiber, a way for people to distinguish themselves as individuals, and often an art form. 


The anorak, sweater, T-shirt dress and leggings of beauty (£69, £45, £39, £35 respectively).

I also like her playful smiley face pieces for the bi-annual 90s party I attend in London - these would go down a treat. (Tuft Call Dress £39, hat £25, bag £35).


Her crinkly silver and gold accessories (necklaces, earrings, cuffs, rings) provide a cool contrast to the colour of the clothes. 

You'll also find phone covers, scarves, T-shirts and leggings and cute furry brooches in the collection, available online and in certain stores, but move fast as certain items are already selling out.
