Unlimited Capacity for Love: Nicholas Kalinoski & thee Vestments

tHEE VESTMENTS is a label that has fast gained a reputation for beautiful textiles and scarves. Luckily for London, thee VESTMENTS has now created its first physical presentation: ‘Unlimited Capacity for Love’ for five days only until 28th April in Marylebone.

Not only that, the scarves will be shown alongside work created by the label’s founder, the fine art-trained Nicholas Kalinoski. The installation will be more like an exhibition than a traditional retail space. SEEN is looking forward to this unique experience.

The installation will include pieces from the first three collections: ‘Atmosphere’, ‘Orgy’ and ‘Raw’, as well as scarves featuring a new and unreleased print. Each design is available in a limited edition of 100 and can be purchased during the exhibition.

The exhibition will showcase Kalinoski’s eclectic inspirations; his upbringing in a small US steel town, his life in fashion in New York, the UK countryside where he lives and London, where his creative collaborators are to be found. Kalinoski’s vivid designs encompass punk rock emblems, tribal symbolism, distorted lyrics and abstracted florals; a glorious mélange that references the past and the present, Kalinoski wants to create wearable relics, combining traditional techniques with modern visuals. Cotton, linen, flax and silk are printed, embellished and woven into portable tapestries that are at once timeless, durable and representative of current energies.

‘The narrative behind the pieces are specific to my experiences. But the root
of that experience is a shared one. This is one of the reasons I wanted to
create the presentation. To provide a three dimensional world where one can
see the works that inspire the scarves, as well providing the space and time
for collectors to interact with the textiles, to feel their emotional weight
and see that these are pieces to cherish.’ Nicholas Kalinoski
