IKEA's First Furniture Collaboration With a Fashion Designer Is Now Available
If you guessed it was with Kanye, you’re wrong.
IKEA unveils its first-ever furniture collaboration with a fashion designer — and no, it was not with Kanye West. Menswear designer Katie Eary — who, however, has worked with ‘Ye in the past on his debut collection at Paris Fashion Week — teamed up with the Swedish company to produce an eccentric fashion show with equally off-the-wall clothes back in 2015. The two have joined forces yet again to unveil an extension of that project, titled Gitlig; a complete line of tableware and other accessories all bearing colorfully loud and abstract designs. Among them are pillows, cups and lampshades outfitted with larger-than-life eyeballs and dentures. A far cry from IKEA’s usual minimalistic aesthetic.
Before finding Gitlig in stores and online now, watch Eary explain her approach below.
