Purity in color has often seemed to take the artistic mainstage. Piet Mondrian, Ellsworth Kelly, Hélio Oiticita. These are just a few names in a long line of artists who have obsessed over the visual and experiential implications of a bodily interaction with pure color.
At TSH we immensely value these artistic experimentations. In fact, we love cycling down to the Art Institute on Saturdays, taking time not only to see the deep blues of Lake Michigan, but also to stand in front of some works by those aforementioned artists.
Inspired by Mondrian as well as by challenges to his purities of abstraction, we’ve made this Skinsuit a mix of Royal Blue, Rowboat Red, White, Black, and Frost Blue. It is our hope that wearing it will expose you to an open and dynamic field of vision unrestrained by dogmatic aesthetics, though also not unaware of them. Basically, we hope you are just as interested in the lake as by its waves. That you spend time thinking about the raw pigments of Hélio Oiticita’s Bolideswithout forgetting the dynamic metal planes of Lygia Clark’s Bichos. And that you spend just as much time cycling into the fading sunset of winter as you do riding through the pure light of summer. Wearing this women’s Regatta Skinsuit, we hope you will begin to chart new planes of visual and physical experience within the world. Think of our Skinsuit as just the start.
We made some matching Regatta socks and a cap, too. Although, their classic looks go with pretty much anything under the sun.
