MANHATTAN, N.Y., March 1, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Japanese-based loungewear brand Gelato Pique will release its new collection created in collaboration with Eames Office. Comprised of four original Eames prints, the House of Cards and Dot Pattern, the new collection includes a selection of hoodies, pullovers, sweatpants, blankets, and piped-hem pajamas, available in a variety of colorways.
Charles and Ray Eames are ranked among the finest American designers of the 20th Century, best known for transforming design’s very nature and practice with their groundbreaking contributions to furniture design, filmmaking, education, art, and toys.
Like many fans in Japan, Gelato Pique has been a long-time admirer of the Eames Office and is consistently influenced by their designs and design philosophy. Through their collections, Gelato Pique always seeks for their customers to feel a special quality in materials and function as much as joy and emotion. In this new collection, Gelato Pique sought to capture the essence of Charles and Ray Eames’ belief that good designs “should take their pleasure seriously” in the relaxed energy of their loungewear, which they have been carefully refining for decades. Gelato Pique hopes that fans of both brands will come together to enjoy the playful nature of the pieces included.
Gelato Pique’s forthcoming collection authorized by Eames Office takes reference from both Eames’ “House of Cards,” and the “Dot Pattern” textile design first exhibited in 1947 at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
A design inspired by “House of Cards”—said to be the most successful of all Eames’ toys—is used to create knitwear and T-shirts in Gelato Pique’s signature fuzzy material. The “Dot Pattern” is applied to Gelato Pique’s exclusive “Smoothie” material, a range of shirt pajamas, and a T-shirt collection.
