This collection was heavily influenced by pop art icon Peter Max, and ‘The Cosmic 60s’ artwork he produced, particularly references to the Universe in his psychedelic artwork. Using cosmic and lunar motifs to create a celestial narrative, two distinctive colour palettes express contrasting ideas; a story of the light, playful cosmic heavens, and the rich, brooding midnight. Australian artist, Harley and J, contributed specially commissioned pieces for this collection exploring the contrasting moods and magical possibilities of the universe.
All of the flares from our ‘Cosmic Velvet’ collection were debuted at New York Fashion Week in September 2017. This range encompasses exclusively designed pieces of artwork for Flare Street in collaboration with Byron Bay artist, Harley & J.
Flare Street’s designs are for those who aren’t just fiercely fashionable but also have a sense of life and individuality. We want people to feel empowered and as though they are expressing themselves in their truest way. The designs are a throwback to that era, reworked and blended with modern colours & structures so that our customers can add it into their everyday wardrobe. We’re huge velvet lovers too - blending psychedelic art, cosmic references, retro prints and velvet is what we love to do!
