The premise for Replica Los Angeles was inspired by a photo of David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Lou Reed taken by photographer Mick Rock, which designer,Nathalie Saphier had discovered many years ago while designing her 1st solo collection. This served as a launchpad to do some sweaters fashioned as 70ʼs rock t-shirts graphically rendered in intarsia knit.
ʻReplicaʼ, is a tongue-in-cheek reference to her 1st go-around with this idea. Long wanting to expand on this concept, she has incorporated much loved musical influences including glam rock, punk and Jamaican ska, along with a love for seminal 70ʼs London boutique/brands, Biba and Mr. Freedom, Pop Art and graphic design, into a collection of vibrant and playful fine gauge intarsia and printed sweater knits.
