Process of: RC for Kenny Beats

Got the opportunity to create bespoke looks for Kenny Beats for Coachella 2023. I met Kenny last year on the same stage he performed at when we did the look for Vince Staples, a nice full circle moment.

For weekend 1, we did a duck canvas field jacket & work pant look out of a new camo print created from flowers, plants, sticks etc I collected off the ground on a recent trip to Palm Springs.

We photograph everything and then similar to the watercolour prints, spend a long time manipulating each element to make it fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.

We then digital print onto the natural duck canvas, cut the new patterns tailored to Kenny & sew it. Finished with a handwritten label cut from a piece of scrap fabric.

Now working on the new look for weekend 2!
