SKINGRAFT – NEW YORK – SPRING/SUMMER 2015 RUNWAY SHOW
The Skingraft x Jordan Eagles collaboration is a significant capsule collection within the Skingraft SS15 collection. The collaboration features Eagles’ artwork featured as sublimated prints on garments, accessories and footwear.
Designer Jonny Cota and Eagles were introduced by mutual friends and were immediately drawn to each others work, sharing a mutual fascination of finding beauty and light in dark macabre imagery. Cota was planning a collection based around the ideas and symbols of Santeria–a syncretic ritual-based religion of Latin-America–and the collaboration with Eagles evolved organically using his vivid collection of blood artwork.
Skingraft SS15 is inspired by Santeria and elements from Mexican prayer altars including smoke, blood and fire.
