Purrfect Space - Slow Boat
Purrfect Space is a collection of many ideas compacted into one insanely beautiful design. Looking at 1980s Hello Kitty designs - specifically a tartan check with Kitty floating around - like a mix of ukiyoe (Japanese traditional block print) and contemporary design. Included in the design are beach balls, borrowed and reinterpreted from an actual 1800s bandanna. Beach balls seem natural as what else would cats in space be doing with their time?
Dedicated to interesting colors, One Ear has employed an ample amount of Quantum Color Theory to this one. "Thinking about what we had created with the 448c I decided on focusing on colors that have already been done, especially with those that have been used at or around the neck area. I started studying vintage neckties, specifically Hermes… they have great color palettes. Eventually I found a nice combination of green and blue and it was the perfect mix. Combined with the tartan check it felt a bit soccer hooligan and a little cute. Both colors carry a aesthetic fragrance of fun and spectacle with a dash of cat fur covered sweatpants."
