Marni + Rop von Mierlo

Dutch artist Rop von Mierlo has fade his first foray into the world of fashion with a collaboration with quirky contemporary brand Marni. Known for his self-published book Wild Animals, which won the Dutch Design Awards in 2011, the graphic designer/illustrator was tapped by Marni to translate said “animals” onto t-shirts and tote bags for their new capsule collection “Sunday Morning” for Summer 2013. Sunday Morning is “a twist of masculine shapes and feminine ease,” according to the brand’s blog, combining outerwear and loungewear inspired pieces to create a metropolitan and relaxed wardrobe.  Each of the blotchy-shaped animals adorning the pieces in the collection, such as a donkey,  parrot, ostrich, and tiger, were created exclusively for Marni.

You can buy the Sunday Morning collection in Marni boutiques or on their website, www.marni.com.
