Lisa King takes screwing to a fashionable new level with her first pop-up at Boxpark, featuring her infamous Flora and Screw designs.
Lisa King started her days as the assistant to Kylie Minogue mega-stylist Will Baker, getting her big break by creating the centrepiece gown for the Kylie retrospective at the V&A (ugh-mazing). The witty designer has since worked as a print designer for high fashion labels including Diane Von Furstenberg and Calvin Klein – but now, she’s cutting loose and showing her designs for all to see with her Boxpark pop-up.
Influenced by hip-hop and ideas of dichotomy, Lisa’s unisex SS13 accessories collection forges together seemingly opposed notions of concept, from masculine versus feminine to industrial versus organic. Like King’s own quirky style, the deconstructed petals of her Flora prints and the marked punctuation of Screw give the finger to traditional boundaries.
From her satirical puns, including the brash ‘Screw You’ and ‘Fancy a Screw’ emblazoned across hippie-loving canvas totes, inconspicuous necklaces to those infamous scarves, the Lisa King spring collection and pop-up isn’t easily missed.
