Shaggy Shoplifter

written by Filippa Berg

We’re fans of & Other Stories co-lab collections and eager to snatch something from the SS17 edition created by Hrafnhildur Arnardottir a.k.a. Shoplifter. The Icelandic visual artist is known for her artwork with synthetic and human hair such as braided murals and tufted hair in multi-coloured mossy pieces.

The co-lab collection transforms Shoplifter’s visual artwork into wearables and features furry characters turned into bags and appliques. Her versions of braided and tufted synthetic hair have become prints in pink, blue, purple and turquoise, decorating sweaters, dresses, trousers, scarfs and caps. There is also jewellery, nail polish and an exellent eyeshadow palette, true to the hues of the garments. And that’s the one we’re gonna grab, along with that chimerically cloudlike anorak.

The collection will be available in selected & Other Stories’ stores and on February 23.
