The famous, beloved comic strip Peanuts has collaborated with Brit label The Rodnik Band, who have designed a playful, cool, grungy capsule collection featuring Charlie Brown, the star of the show, Snoopy and their entourage.

According to The Rodnik Band designer and creative director, Philip Colbert, the Peanuts office in the UK had been following their designs for the past few seasons and contacted them with the suggestion of a partnership.

“They are such cute, varied, philosophical characters with a profound sense of humour – it’s amazingly light, yet very deep” he gushed.

The Rodnik Band, a UK based women’s wear label, has it’s roots in pop culture and it’s essence is sprinkled with fun, whimsy and “surreal sensibility” as described by Vogue UK.

Their collections exhibit splashes of bold colour, pop art prints and quirky, intelligent glamour.

What a clever way to immortalise such iconic figures from our childhood, making them relevant in the 21st Century. Now we too, can wear Snoopy on our chests.

tarantino’s reservoir dogs pop art movie poster –

Deemed the, Greatest Independent Film of All Time by Empire magazine, this American crime film demonstrated Tarantino’s ability to produce classics which garner worldwide pop-cult film followings. This graphic rework of the original poster features an outline of the five main characters.

Quentin Tarantino’s directing style is distinctive. The Mexican standoff, the familiar diner and bar scene, the androgynous black and white suits – these are the stylistic trademarks of a director, fondly termed a “director DJ.” A known boundary breaker with a tongue-in-cheek sense of humour and an eccentric demeanour, Tarantino is a global industry favourite.

Created by South African designer Joseph Chiang and available from Monster Galleries.

wear your (pop) art on your sleeve.

Ever since I saw the classic Warhol film Chelsea Girls, my obsession with
all things pop art , particularly the likes of Jean-Michel Basquait, Pauline Boty, Andy
Warhol (obv) , Banksy, Damien Hirst, and Roy Lichtenstein began.

Designers like Betsey Johnson, Vivienne Westwood, Valentino,
Heatherette and Lisa Perry captured the fashion
world’s imagination with bold references to pop
culture highly visible in their work.

The look is pure, colour drenched
eye porn, with stars like Rita Ora, Katy Perry &
Nicki Minaj comfortably adopting this as their
signature look.
Fashion editors have even coined the phrase “Kidult” to
describe the colourful, childlike essence of the look
embraced by serious fashionistas and Jane Soaps on
the street alike.

Cartoon tees, pop art dresses,
sneakers and retro pop culture figures prominently
featured in garments & statement accessories make for a light-hearted, expressive journey to a place where art boldly meets fashion.
