Surrealist Henn Kim’s endearing but somehow bleak illustrations take new form with a collaboration with Charles and Keith’s Monochromatic line, available starting Sep 5 in Bangkok stores.
The “Heart Is Every Wear” designs will feature four pieces, including a gothy thick-soled boot and a bag with the line’s signature illustrated (and somewhat anatomically correct) heart.
The artist’s illustrations are in simple black and white, and this fashion line with the premier outlet Charles and Keith takes a dark turn, with jet black and white designs evincing the artist’s punishingly emotional style.
Henn Kimm’s surreal works deal in themes of technology, abandonment, and jarring juxtapositions, and she has become something of an art icon on social media, particularly on Instagram where whe boasts more than 800 thousand followers.
Charles and Keith is originally a Singaporean brand, and there are more than a dozen brick-and-mortar shops throughout Bangkok.
