Preen Resort Invitation
Preen began life as a bijoux boutique on London's Portobello Road in 1996 and is now one of Britain's hippest labels. Design duo Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi count Kate Moss, Michelle Obama and Samantha Cameron among their customers. Their Resort 2012 collection is based on a Japanese references being hand-embroidered, block-printed onto silk, and knit into intarsia sweaters.
This is the invitation for the launch of the collection in London at the Club at the Ivy (very fancy!). It's not an easy one photograph satisfactorily - it's worth clicking on the images to bring them up to scale. The size of the invitations is A5 (210x148mm) portrait. It is printed in two colours (offset litho) in red and black on our Flora Noce 240gsm. For those not familiar with Flora, it has a natural "rustic" feel and this shade is a light buff colour and it has small wood shives in the sheet. The Flora has then been mounted/pasted on our exceptionally thick Monoblack 1400mics to give the finished item a black edge.
It works really well, but is really hard to demonstrate in a photograph!
...and here is the pic which shows the black edge:
...and thank you for the note, Mark.
