ANDREW (ARTEK) THIELE for BLUECARATS
This collaboration was formed on the longstanding relationship and shared synergy between ARTEK and BLUECARATS. Creators bonded by art and craftsmanship.
"We both have studios in the fashion district of NYC and spend countless hours bringing our visions to full fruition. Creativity is our passport. It is the vehicle that takes us from our humble studios and connects us to places and people throughout the world. I take a little heritage in the idea of the old garment workers who pride themselves on making a product that they stand by and so does BLUECARATS. We all stand behind what we do and the art of doing it".
"The canvases of our collaboration are the quintessential BLUECARATS Signature Bandana and Denim. The bandanas are inspired by and pay homage to our city and shared spirit. Artwork on the bandanas includes the NYC Garment Worker Statue, a classic skull inspired by the BLUECARATS Stone, and the token phrase “Honor Royalty – Legacy Loyalty” - the BLUECARATS mantra. The Jeans feature a combination of words and images that we live by daily and embodies our ethos. Together we’re bringing dressing as an artform to actuality." - Artek
