Everyone is sending me this flyer. I guess they know that I probably might have something to say about American designers (NYC gets top billing) using Canada as a legitimate source of inspiration (Canadian designers might do well to take note).
Feral Childe are Alice Wu and Moriah Carleson, two designers from New York City , who are currently in residence at the Drake Hotel. Their collection “Canadian Alphabet,” is inspired by the cultural and vernacular characteristics of Toronto and surrounding environs.
What I am curious about is how literal it will be, either in the sense of employing iconography of Canada, or influenced directly by the neighborhoods in the vicinity of the Drake where these artists resided, or if Canadian alphabet will be more abstract. The poster doesn’t offer me a clue. I could check out their website, but I’d like to be surprised.
That is if I can find my 2nd wind at 9pm. This will keep me up past my bedtime.
