Chantal Young’s Batik Print Sweatshirts


“I wanted to modify that image by adding something poetic and expressive”

Posted by Kay

I’ve been coveting my friend Rachel’s Chantal Young sweatshirt (worn by Charlie, right) for a while now, so when we had a day of thandiekay shooting recently, she kindly dropped it off for Jermaine Francis to shoot.

Born in London, Chantal is a print and Batik designer living in Milan. She has always been interested in fabrics, dyeing techniques and  adapting clothes by changing the colour and by printing.

She began by printing on second hand garments with her own simple patterns for years until one day it grew into more of refined business.

Regarding the choice of fabrics that don’t usually get adorned with any more than a logo, Chantal says “I like an unexpected combination, standard sportswear is often conventional,  masculine and plain, I wanted to modify that image by adding something poetic and expressive”

The common sweatshirt and T-shirt is no more. Hello to more ever-evolving canvases.
