Designer Peter Ross unveils graffiti-based sportswear line
May '12
Fashion designer Peter Ross has unveiled a new contemporary knit sportswear line 'Stay Goldn' inspired by street art and graffiti.

The designer has vast experience of designing for casual-sportswear category at Miro and his own two previous lines – Grail and Bird of Prey.

For his Grail line, which the designer launched in 2001, he used tattoos and tattoo art on contemporary clothing. His successful concept was subsequently capitalized by other brands.

This time, the designer has taken street art and graffiti as an inspiration. He said street art is currently shifting from underground to mass culture.

To create the new collection, Ross collaborated with street artists to transfer the pieces of art that are depicted on walls to screen prints. Moreover, Ross' trademark treatments, dye processes and washes are applied to garments.

The new Stay Goldn line consists of skirts, dresses, T-shirts, sweatpants and hoodies in thermals and knits, slouchy drawstring pants and open boat-neck tops.

The new line has street theme expressed elaborately in a number of ways. Some of the artwork painted on the wall is recreated on clothing by layering paint and using a variety of fabric treatments.
