I’m thrilled about our Spring Limited Edition Collection, a collaboration with the talented Toronto based artist Nicole Katsuras.
Her brilliant work inspired me so much from the moment I saw it. Las Vidas was the first painting in view when I walked in to the Beau-xi Gallery here in Vancouver. I literally stopped in my tracks proclaiming “wouldn’t that be fabulous on fabric!”. Little did I ever think it would become a reality, and I feel blessed with the opportunity to work with Nicole.
A prolific artist, she received a Master of Fine Arts from Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in London, and an Honours Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto. Nicole currently exhibits in Canada and the US and her work can be found in major corporate collections around the globe. She has also designed an exclusive line of luxury silk and wool rugs for Stark Carpet in NYC.
Her work is bold and uplifting, which couldn’t be more needed than now! We have incorporated two of Nicole’s paintings into our leotards, in subtle mesh or vibrant solids. Las Vidas is the main print taken from the painting of the same name. The secondary painting is called Summer Holdover (see the Amelia). Both befitting the warm summer months ahead!
