Four Images that Drive Katie King’s Sweatshirt Line

“I like taking the sweatshirt, a unisex shape that can be worn every day, and adding details to change the look and feel of each one,” says Family’s super-chill mastermind (and JF & Son’s co-designer) Katie King. What form do her embellishments take? We’re talking beading, prints, and embroidery drawn from visuals she rounds up…and then tweaks until they’re unrecognizable. Here, four of Katie’s inspo starting points and the rad pullovers they fueled.

“I took this photo while on a road trip with my mom in Montana. I love the lines and asymmetry of the glaciers and decided to put an acid filter over it make it more surreal and colorful for the Landscape family.”

“The Knot family is based on several sound diagrams, which illustrate how sound waves move through space. I thought their spacing and gradients made really beautiful layouts for French knot embroidery.”

“In 2009, I came across this painting by Alma Thomas in a New York Times article about the artwork the Obama family hung in the White House. I loved the painting so much for both the color contrast and the chipped-paint texture. I used it as the basis for the Paint family, in which sequins are hand sewn onto a high-contrast background—black on bright white, white on black, bright blue on white.”
