We’re super aroused to discover something we've been working on behind the scenes for a while now- an exclusive collaboration with manner+ residence decoration firebrand Raleigh Denim Workshop and craftsman Corey Mason! No two fragments are the same. Each piece is a numbered, one-off piece of art.
This super restriction copy collection of wearable artwork is alone available at Design Milk Shop. The lengths are very limited so you can add a piece of art to your home or closet that nobody else will have.
The hand screen-printed collection consists of 2 sweatshirts( olive green+ melon ), 1 pocket tee( olive green ), 2 tote bags( selvage denim+ green selvedge twill) and 1 shy pillow( green selvage linen ). Each fragment is numbered with very limited quantities of each available.
Fueled by friendship and a desire to push each other through a drought of clevernes, Victor Lytvinenko, Master Jeansmith and Co-Founder of Raleigh Denim Workshop, and Corey Mason teamed up to co-create this new restraint volume collection of pattern, residence decoration and supplementaries. The motifs were driven by exploring each other’s complementary innovative superpowers through process and duplication. Very much inspired by the chaos and unpredictability of quality, the duo went off on a adventure to toss some grains in a field and view what changes. Their investigates been successful in a modern, floral-themed collection that is a perfect balance of both art and craft.
I’ve been a long-time fan of Victor and Sarah’s dedication to craft and clevernes, which includes partnering with others in order to better to co-create exciting high-quality blueprints that feel unique and special. Acquiring a piece from this accumulation is like owning art that’s beautiful and functional.
I talked to both Victor and Corey about the process of creating the collect. Victor says that collaboration fuels him:” It pushes me to do brand-new things, lets me create in new ways and places wild, unexpected ideas in my president .”
There's an energy that get made when two parties work on something together who also respect and confidence each other.
Echoing Victor, Corey says,” There's an energy that gets formed when two people work on something together who likewise respect and confidence one another .” I asked about about this specific floral motif and where the seed for the relevant recommendations was planted( forgive me, puns planned ). He shows,” Remember that day you were lying on your back in the timber catching your gulp gaping up at the sky? All you see is green leaves realizing darkness against the bright blue sky. This is that moment .”
His connectedness to nature isn't intentional, though. Having been taught as a scenery decorator, Corey doesn't have a firm answer as to why he's drew attention to natural ornaments:” I don't know, is the short answer. What I do know is there is influence there, as it always seems to show up in the use some road. But it's not some sort of manifesto with a clear agenda. I didn't set out to be a landscape painter or a mood painter. The mystics will tell you everything is connected to everything in a quantum physics sorta unexplainable practice. There's something there- a alliance, rights and interests, a longing .”
With the right people- open minded, open hearted, skilled- we can create so much more than a” creative spark “… we can create an inferno.
Both Corey and Victor cite the pandemic as being the impetus for collaborative relationships:” I used to work a similar leaf perception successions about 2 years ago and killed it soon after as I just wasn't sure where it was going. It was recreation and I was proud of it but felt the need to move on. And had no plans to revisit it. Then the virus happened, which commenced a renewed interest in being outside, thumping the reset button on everything. The leaf covers emerged again ,” Corey explains.
Victor too felt a pull in a different direction:” I had been going to the shop every night by myself to create and impel something every day, but after a couple months I was coming stir crazy. Corey lives 2 blocks over and I reached out to see if he wanted to work on something together and he invited me over to his studio. We didn't have a direction at that point. I wreaked cloths and a few wears; we knew we could make an amazing capsule collection…and now we are !”
