VLISCO x KOMONO
Launched yesterday, NOW in store at KOMONO by YOUR!
Ever since their first Komono ‘print’ series, they have been very innovative with their graphic patterns. They want to offer more than beautiful patterns and wrap your wrist in stories. Vlisco has everything they look for in a collaboration: a huge heritage, a true original with a fierce passion for their craft and unlimited stories to tell. This is the partnership dreams are made of.
For this collaboration they are introducing a unique capsule collection of 6 Komono watches fashioned with the first registered fabric from the Vlisco archive, “the Snakeskin print”.
(The Household Gravel / Ghana – Kponbazé / Panther Skin / Togo – Kpo Gbaza / Panther Benin).
The Snakeskin Print is one of the oldest designs still available in the Vlisco archive and registered as design 001 in the records. These motifs are associated with the gravel around a house, protecting and alerting the inhabitants of intruders, hence the name ‘The Household Gravel’. The gravel also refers to the immediate family, ‘sometimes sharp and can cut you deeply’ − being those who ultimately cause you pain.
Each watch personifies the Vlisco and Komono collaboration perfectly. All pieces are unique, as a result of the wax craquelé on the strap and the limited series-number etched on the case back. Style your wrist with the perfect match of Vlisco and Komono.
THE VLISCO STORY
Vlisco. A story as unique as their fabrics.
Vlisco’s heritage is quite unlike any other. Since 1846, Vlisco created unique textiles influencing the fashion landscape in West and Central Africa. These fabrics reflect true Dutch craftsmanship and were originally known as ‘Hollandais’, from the French word for ‘Dutch’. They’re still the only brand creating authentic Dutch Wax fabrics recognisable for their unique design, colours and wax craquelé. Today, Vlisco is an International brand with a rich heritage and many heart-warming stories to tell. Stories of family history, inheritance and of fabrics that have deeper meaning and are honoured with names of endearment by their consumers and traders. The story is as such ever evolving.
Vlisco, the true original.
Chasing the Light
Head west into the twinkling lights. This is where stars are born. Where pioneers cloak themselves in the business of leisure, and where everything is at the same time breathless and alive. Embed yourself in the icons of the day, both the timeless and the well-timed, and take note of how far you must leap from the ordinary. This season’s collection is inspired by iconic 1960s architect John Lautner, a pioneer whose designs are an extension of both the natural environment and the individual. His legacy of pushing boundaries combined with a dramatic vision of the future reminds us that the there is vice and vibrancy on the horizon and both are for the taking. Find your inspiration and become the storyteller. Inspiration is a frame of mind, and the right frame of mind starts with the
Inspiration – The Lautner House
John Lautner (1911 – 1994) was a pioneering American architect whose work in Southern California combined progressive engineering with humane design and dramatic space-age flair. A trademark of iconic 1960s Los Angeles style, his Sheats Goldstein Residence is an example of Organic Architecture that strives to be an extension of both the natural environment and of the individual. An apprentice under Frank Lloyd Wright, Lautner juxtaposes clean structural lines with the organic shapes of the natural surroundings. KOMONO’s collection takes inspiration from Lautner’s pioneering spirit and iconic designs, but strives to distill its timeless qualities into accessories that act both as an extension of the individual and a reflection of the cultural environment.
