Pop art has long been one of the many ingredients inspiring our incredible graphic team here at Fly53 HQ and this season’s sweats are a striking testament to the art form. If you’re familiar with our mantra you’ll already know why Fly53’s passion for pop art spans the nearly two decades since it’s birth.
Emerging in the mid 50’s it presented a challenge to traditional ‘fine art’ by injecting it with imagery from popular culture to twist it’s meaning and raise a bold middle finger to the elite who believed ‘art’ to be their own.
In much the same way that pop art challenged mainstream ideas about what art was, for the last two decades Fly53 has challenged mainstream ideas about what makes fashion and who decides?
Our FLY53 Zoinks Crew and Norville Zip through pop art inspired threads reiterate the message; fashion is unique, striking, wearable and intelligent, an expression of individuality and whatever you want it to be.
Cotton mix, loop back over-dyed indie pop art inspired sweats with flat lock stitching and ribbing at the hem and cuff. Finished with our infamous triple bolts embroidered on the back of the neck.
Whats Lookin’ Good This Summer…
Every summer has its key looks, and 2010 is no different. Obviously FLY53 are leading the way and coincidently seem to have many pieces in our Spring/Summer Collection that fit every ‘On Trend’ look this coming season. Like we said, leaders not followers. Over the next few weeks the blog is goin to examine the looks that will be shaping the summer, and the pieces from our new collection that fit into these catagories. This week Colour.
We all know that when the sun comes out, its time for colour. The key is to not go over the top, try wearing one bright garment and the rest more understated. This will not only make the colour you choose stand out, but will make sure you dont look like a big neon cone….you can still be bright without going over the top. With that being said, here are a few bright coloured options from our collection….
Two Planets Jacket
God Mother Strappy Top
Team either of these pieces with something a tad less daring, for example the jacket with a dark t-shirt or the vest top with a dark skirt….These are just ideas, but may make the difference between you being fashionable this summer, or being that overly bright wearing friend whose outfit just screams ‘look at me!’. There are plenty of ways you can create a understated colourful look from our new collection, so head on over to our online shop today and check it out…
