Artist Talk: Behind the scenes with MRS + MR LUKE

Artist Talk: Behind the scenes with MRS + MR LUKE

Each season, we collaborate with artists from the country that inspires our collection, and they help to develop the designs that adorn our kits.

This season we are proud to present the coolest couple in Cape Town hands down, the artist duo MRS + MR LUKE. Our team in South Africa caught up with the Luke's in their studio to hear about their individual print inspiration, collaborating with Janji, and more.

 

 

 



 



For me, the Janji print started off as a representation of people and basic shapes, so if you zoom in on the print you see basic blocks, triangles, circles, and when they all come together they actually form a very deconstructed helix, which is our DNA.

When I started, I was visualizing how I run and what it feels like. What does it feel like every time your leg hits the ground. My stuff was more around energy. And then also incorporating movement.

We did a combined print that said 'Water is a Human Right', which I thought was a really succinct, really powerful statement.

And at the time that we were designing, it's amazing because that's what we were going through as a city.
