Kim Gordon x Sportmax

Following on in their series of collaborative projects titled Carte Blanche, womenswear label Sportmax have teamed up with Kim Gordon, visual artist, designer and founding member of the hugely influential Sonic Youth, for their next installment. In the second chapter of this limited edition collection, the label have produced a number of pieces that incorporate Kim's fine art work into beautiful printed t-shirts and dresses in soft loose shapes. Giving the artist 'carte blanche', the idea behind each of the collaborations is to leave the artist as decision maker, allowing them the freedom to integrate their aesthetic into the clothes.
