Skinny laMinx : How a decades long obsession ended up as a collaboration
Skinny laMinx is a well-known textile design and studio based in Cape Town, South Africa. The Studio was founded by Heather Moore, as designer know for her vibrant and contemporary patterns inspired by nature, geometry and everyday life.
We have written about Heather and Skinny laMinx before, but as I released another lot of her best-selling Flower Fields and Pebbles designs online today, I felt very nostalgic about having these beautiful, timeless designs back in store.
My introduction to Skinny laMinx was a very long time ago, shortly after I returned from living in Denmark. After seeing images of Heathers incredible hand printed fabrics in magazines and on very early Pinterest pages I became literally obsessed. So it was a huge thrill many years later to be able to collaborate with Heather and put her beautiful designs onto my fabrics.
I am excited to say that we have more newness in store for this summer, based on a unique combination of Heathers classic designs with new bold palettes that are also from her archives, or from other active products in her own home and lifestyle collections.
This type of timeless design is becoming more and more important to me. Maybe it is my age, but I really feel like I am also seeking solace in authenticity, quality and designs that I can live with for the rest of my life. This week will see some new garments for my pending Overseas trip in Flower Fields and Pebble.
Here are some of those old images of Skinny laMinx designs that inspired me soooo much.

My Sustainability Journey
Sustainability is at the core of everything now. Environmentally, socially, morally. There is SO MUCH MORE to Sustainability than local production or organic fabric.
My biggest learning is that SUSTAINABILITY IS A JOURNEY, NOT AN END RESULT. Very few companies have it right, but we all need to begin somewhere.
