Grosse Face collection by Mauve Naif

Mauve Naif designer Catherine Lebrun is a busy girl. So, I rarely get a chance to see her here at HQ. The first time I had a chance to check out her new "Grosse Face" collection was at the *Smart Design Mart show last month and I was really happy to see her amazing new illustrations silkscreened onto sweaters, tees and scarves for guys and girls.

The tees are super soft and drapy, made from a great cotton/viscose blend. It's the kind of shirt that's so comfy you want to throw it on every day, yet the great fabric and awesome prints make you look like you still put in some effort. It's a win win situation.

Black on black sweatshirt. I'm going to be picking up one of these for myself.

We have these scarves down at HQ right now, in all four colours. Hand screen printed on a heavy weight jersey, these babies go for $70.

Catherine also took part in the En Masse project at the *Smart Design Mart.

For those of you familiar with Catherine's hand painted pieces she will still be making them from time to time, just not at the same frequency as before. They're hand painted one of a kind pieces people, the girl's gotta sleep sometime! So, if you see one, you better grab it while you can!
