Sportmax taps Langley Fox Hemingway for capsule collection

Sportmax, the younger line of Max Mara, has tapped illustrator and part-time model Langley Fox Hemingway for an arty capsule collection, limited to 1,000 pieces. The collection forms part of “Carte Blanche”, the brand’s series of artistic encounters that explores the mutual influence between art and fashion, which in the past has included collaborations from director Chiara Clemente, creative Ambra Medda, artist Lola Montes Schnabel, art director Christophe Brunnquell, as well as painter, fashion designer and former member of Sonic Youth Kim Gordon. Langley, who was raised in Ketchum, Idaho, is the great-granddaughter of legendary American author and Nobel Prize winner Ernest Hemingway, the daughter of Oscar nominated actress Mariel Hemingway and sister to famous model Dree Hemingway. For the sixth installment of Carte Blanche, the artist was inspired by her great-grandfather’s love for nature, creating 3 t-shirts, 3 dresses and 3 sweatshirts that depict natural subjects like flowers, plants, feathers, wings and arrows.

The elegant and somehow minimal pieces reflect perfectly the artist’s free spirit and trademark photorealistic style, all apparent in her graphite illustrations that merge portraiture with botanical, floral and feather themes. Her works have gained her numerous fans all around the world, leading her to collaborate with brands like Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs or Alice+Olvia, and magazines like Foam, Love and L’Officiel Hommes. “I love drawing female characters, like Anna Karina, Lou Doillon, Rooney Mara, and most of all, my friends. I also enjoy adding or doing full images of nature or things that have somewhat of an eerie essence,” revealed the artist in a recent interview with the Coveteur. The Sportmax Carte Blanche by Langley Fox Hemingway collection was unveiled some days ago at the Milan’s Sportmax flagship store in Via della Spiga 20, with the attendance of the Los Angeles-based artist. The capsule collection is now available at selected Sportmax stores, as well as online.
