Printed Armour

Printed Armour

I've been stunted by another holding page, the bane of a curious blogger's life.  After seeing some rather amazing ruffled leather trousers courtesy of Scottish designer Graeme Armour (literally armour by name and nature…), I went on a search and found said holding page but also an interesting collaboration between fellow Scot illustrator/graphic designer Johanna Basford, who has been all over the design blogs.  Bear with me as I'm a little slow to Basford's work but her signature is basically exceedingly detailed and intricate black pen drawings that are mostly inspired by her upbringing in rural Aberdenshire in Scotland. For Armour's A/W 09 collection, she created  a series of illustrations, backed by Scottish Textiles that upclose is an amalgamation of all manner of trinkets thrown in with her flora and fauna signature. 

GA1 GA22


GA33 GA55


After further searching, the rest of Armour's A/W 09 collection with all its interlocking wool, leather looping and of course THOSE ruffled leather trews are available for all and sundry to see… take that holding page!

    The prints look sooo delectable. Those would look good as wall decals, too.

    Those prints are pretty amazing to behold. I really like that second tee with the print but the gold ruffled trousers really steal the show. Wow.
