YSB x NATALIE KRIM
For our first capsule collection we partnered with artist Natalie Krim. Natalie is an erotic illustrator whose work has been featured in purple mag, playboy and is carried at Mama Gallery. The subjects are sexy girls in naughty poses drawn with an old world Parisian flair but there is a deeper current to Natalie’s work where you can see a young woman coming to terms with herself and her relationship to the world. For Natalie they are “self-portraits of loss and desire”.
In our collaboration we translated her work into embroidered pieces for the home such as pillows, framed handkerchiefs, vintage aprons, wallpaper and upholstered pieces. Since Natalie traditionally draws on dead stock notebooks we chose to use antique French linens carry on the vintage quality of her work.
