Those familiar with the work of modern architect/designer/painter/urban planner Le Corbusier (hello fellow art history nerds!) will find it easy to see the innovative artist's influence on wrk-shp's Fall/Winter 2015 collection. Like him, the LA-based multi-disciplinary design studio tends not to limit their creative endeavors; husband and wife team Airi Isoda and Ryan Upton lend their modern-minimal aesthetic to architecture, objects, and clothing—all of which can be seen in their current pop-up at Voyager in DTLA's Arts District.
The LA outpost of the contemporary clothing and home goods shop (there are two San Fransisco locations) devotes some major real estate to wrk-shp's installation, which features not only clothing items from their current collection, but the brand's paint-dipped clutches ($89), concrete vessels ($58), conceptual side tables with cut-outs designed to fit them ($750), and even a geometric wooden structure to hold it all—which gives guests to the boutique a hint of their architectural capabilities.
Some highlights of the clothing displayed in the pop-up—all of which were created with Japanese textiles—include a a navy waterproof trench ($350), a cozy sweatshirt emblazoned with "Corbu" for their muse Le Corbusier ($178), and some two-tone knit pants ($110). The latter two, which combine to create one of the chicest sweatsuits we can imagine, are super high on our list.
