Hello Kitty!

Hope you'll forgive my clichéd play on words (no bowed cute
kittens here!) yet I'm glad to welcome newcomer Kitty Joseph,
the gifted young textile designer who came to make a splash
with her uncommon perspex accessories (she created bespoke
pieces for celebrities as well as print collections for 
highly-regarded international brands) that became 
something of a signature for her in spite of her young age.

The British born and based talent showcased her first full seasonal
clothes collection since her Royal College of Arts MA graduation last 
year inspired by ”the chaos and repetition of nature's miniatures 
close up and under the looking glass the cells and particles in
marble, stone, fossils and wood grain; and gargantuan nature
stars, clouds, galaxies and the earth from afar”
as she 
declares in her website's artistic statement.

Kitty brought into being an interesting collection with
accents of sportswear and a 90s minimalist silhouette in
which bold and sophisticated prints play the leading role.
Neoprene bomber jackets, velvet shorts, sports dresses
and reversible printed pieces call attention to ”the growing
importance in the role of luxury technical garments...”.
Cool in a natural manner, Kitty's woman looks like the
missing link between a not fully predictable future 
and nature's concreteness.
