SPOONYARD and Korean artist Ina Jang announce their latest collaborative collection. Using the playful and poetic approach of Ina Jang's work, SPOONYARD constructs a clothing collection full of vitality and imaginative space. Ina Jang's unique perception of still life, shadow, and use of color endows the work with new connotations and presents an avant-garde creative spirit.
In Radiator Theatre, the inspiration comes from Ina Jang’s observation of light passing through her south-facing windows, illuminating the large radiator a few feet from her bed. Ina Jang created Radiator Theatre - a collection of colorful, sometimes surrealist images - by cutting shapes from paper, hand-painting and arranging them in scenes she photographed in the winter sunlight that streamed through the windows of her New York studio.
The SPOONYARD X Ina Jang collection features four photographs from Raditor Theatre, including rose (2018), disco (2018), mohohan (2020) and blues (2018), combining unique shapes and natural colors, which establishes a beautiful simplicity.
The collection covers women's sweaters, unisex sweaters, hoodies and coach jackets. Each product prints with Ina Jang’s photography and features a unique co-branded label on the back or on the cuff details. The SPOONYARD X Ina Jang collection is available now in D-mop and J-01.
