Behind the Seams
KULE has collaborated with Alix of Bohemia on a limited run of our signature Raleigh sweatshirt, each hand-embroidered with a daisy motif. Nikki met Alix for dinner in Mallorca, where Alix was based, and that's where their friendship began. Following an event together last fall, the two designers wanted to develop a special product that would incorporate the playful classics of KULE with the handcraft and folk art traditions of Alix of Bohemia. This shirt is a marriage of the two aesthetics. The daisy motif was inspired by the iconic costumes of Marcel Marceau, as well as the exploded floral motifs of 1970s Marimekko and Ossie Clark. Each flower appliqué is individually cut and pieced in India, and stitched by hand in Portugal. The hand embroidery takes 4-6 hours to complete for just one sweatshirt and because of the individual nature of the work, each piece is one-of-a-kind.
