“Artist At Home” tells the story of the creative process through the language of textile

“Artist At Home” features the new collection from Olya Glagoleva‘s eco-friendly brand GO in collaboration with Lisa Smirnova, a talented artist from Moscow. “Artist At Home” is a story about the creative process of an artist which has been told through the language of textile. The fabrics used in this collection are cashmere, organic Indian hemp & cotton, 80’s denim jeans and vintage towels sourced from London’s famous Portobello Road, as well as plaid blankets from flea markets in Wales. The collection tells the story of a painter whose studio and her home are a single space where home and work clothing mix together. Every garment has only been produced once, each decorated with hand embroidery in the unique style of Lisa Smirnova. The clothes themselves are pieces of art, created in a process that spans up to 100 hours each. In keeping up with the GO tradition, every piece is packed in a separate box made from recycled wood with detailed information about the item and a small book with the full story of the creation process.
