Artistic brothers Nick and Phil Goss have collaborated with fashion brand Folk to create a capsule collection inspired by JG Ballard’s The Drowned World in which the earth has been submerged beneath floodwater due to a cataclysmic solar event. Perhaps a little far fetched when the book was written in 1962, but an ever growing possibility in todays world.
Drawing inspiration from the dystopian world in Ballard’s work the brothers created a series of abstract landscapes and drawings, utilising complex prints with a large range of colours to depict imagined scenes. Water features heavily, the Goss Brothers being half Dutch and with Holland being three metres under sea level, flooding is somewhat of an obsession of Dutch people.
Highlights include the Rab Shirt with a Pelican print, the Setting Sun T-shirt and the Rab Jacket with a Large Alligator print. The collection is available from Folk's website
