DANE JOHNSON // EITHER WAY LA // JUCO

“Art Clothes” sound like something a high school visual art teacher wears. That probably means gaucho pants and Mondrian inspired reading glasses and old Camper shoes and a vest that literally has paint on them: no one has time for that. But, you should take time for artist Dane Johnson‘s art clothes because—Well.—they truly are what they sound like.

The project came out of a collaboration with art/retail space Either Way, which hosted a small show of these wears back in June. Johnson painted graphic shapes that ranged from baseball silhouettes to non-objective zig zags on various primary, colorblocking plays. His paint choices follow similarly as they are simple and somewhat understated, making the entire collection extremely different but one, cohesive thought.

To make this whole thing even better, dream team photography duo (AND ISSUE 5 OF WORK COVER STORY PHOTOGRAPHERS) JUCO did a nice little shoot of the clothing. Shot on bright backdrops, everything pops and everything seems a bit more enticing. If they weren’t so expensive, I’d probably buy half of the wears and hang them on my wall.

If you’re down with this, you should check out Either Way’s online shop, where the goods are for sale. There’s more than women’s clothing, too: there are unisex clothes and kids clothes and even some shoes. Catch more of JUCO’s photography of the collection here.
