SomnamBulle / Sababa Collaboration
Updated: Mar 10
This collaboration is a project that has been in the works for about five years now. I first met Laure Bertiere (SomnamBulle) back in 2015 on our GBP Europe trip and we connected on a similar art style and started talking about ways to collaborate in the future. Laure is a very talented painter / seamstress and makes all kinds of unique clothes and accessories from scratch using really cool patterns and materials sometimes painting directly on them or creating screens for printing from her own original artwork . when i saw her stuff it reminded me of when I used to make custom
Sababa patches and put them on old hoodies and always dreamed about making cozy clothing from scratch as a way to put the Sababa vibe into something you wear. When i saw the SomnamBulle clothing i felt the vibe was so similar and it would be so cool to do a collaboration with the comfy sweaters and sweatpants she made. Laure was incredible as soon as we came up with the idea she was on it and sent me a box from Paris to California of 12 different custom made items for me to add some painting accents to and sell as a collaboration to help share our work with each others audiences from different areas of the world and expand and connect the people who share an appreciation for this art and vibe . Its been a whole series of events for me since then that have prolonged this whole project from being released, but Long story short i Apologize to Laure for taking so Long, seeing your work ethic over these years has been a huge inspiration to me and Im just trying to spread the word and show more people the amazing art you make.
