Squidlondon, ‘Madame Butterfly’ , 2011

‘Madame Butterfly’ Jacket with Peacock Appliqué, 2011

Founded in 2008, Squid London consists of two college friends from the London College of Fashion. Viviane Jaeger and Emma-Jayne Parkes use hydrochromatic inks that begin to change color when wet. Their first product was the Squidrella, ‘Paint Drip,’ an umbrella commissioned by Tate, that was inspired by Jackson Pollack paintings. The Opera Icons Collection collaboration consists of three rainwear coats designed and constructed by Vlasta Collu (bespoke designer, couturier and milliner at Vlasta Collu) and the color changing appliqués sewn by Charlotte La Roche (bespoke senior embroidery designer at
Oscar de la Renta).
