Early this morning, a group of us got a chance to preview IKEA’s 5th annual Art Event AND do a quick fashion shoot with the featured “art” which is a fabulous collection of rugs created by eight of today’s hottest designers including fashion elite’s fave de jour Virgil Abloh! It’s a short-term collection that mashes-up tapestry art, rug handicraft avantgarde fashion, street culture and modern design. Available in limited quantities, these high-quality rugs will go fast. We wanted to buy one of these babies for the office, but the Boss said it wasn’t in the budget. 😀
A big thank you to the team at IKEA for the exclusive opportunity! And a special shoutout to fashion designer Levi Portillo of Enigmas x Levi for letting us use pieces from his recent collection.
