Designer Daily: Haus Alkire
Jan 08, 2012 - by Jessica Lapidos
Haus Alkire has dabbled in subtle psychedelics. The near-grayscale trip of mirrored shapes kaleidoscopes into light flowers over twisted classics. Julie Haus and Jason Alkire have been collaborating for over a decade, Haus running the design end with Alkire's artwork and photography. The goal is melding fashion and art and they do so with haunting effects. Their flagship store thrives on Broome St. in SoHo, and they've just been granted the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation award for womenswear. See "Collection One," handmade in New York City with laser cut lambskin, cashmere and the softest silks.
