I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

Hand-dyed Shibori workshops at MiH Jeans HQ

We’ve all done this before – more commonly known as the tie-dye, even more commonly known as the shaming of a perfectly fine pair of jeans by way of a handful of rubber bands and household bleach. Let’s be honest, this was way before the time of Dr Internet, nobody knew how long you were meant to keep the jeans in the bucket for – all I remember was that mine always turned out looking as if I sat on a freshly-painted park bench, or took a very restless hobo-nap on one. Shibori on the other hand, is a fascinating alternative form of tie-dying, an ancient Japanese cloth-dyeing technique that mostly involves the colour indigo and techniques such as folding, stitching and twisting fabric, using bamboo sticks, ropes and marbles.

MiH Jeans recently hosted a couple Shibori workshops at their HQ in Hammersmith, led by LA artist Niki Livingston, and on attending one I fell in love with the set-up (“OMG, I dye”, to borrow words from Rachel Zoe) + art/science behind it all, I decided to team up with MiH Jeans to gift TWO lucky folk the chance to win a piece from the collection. Let me iterate, there are only 20 pieces available in each design and every single piece was hand-dyed by Niki herself, which took approximately about a bazillion hours (don’t quote me on this) given the complexity of the technique. Seriously exclusive. My personal favourite is the dotty Oversize shirt, reminds me of all the marbles I lost over the years…


How to enter: Easy peasy – either Instagram an image of your indigo inspiration (think anything blue), tag @MiHJeans and include #letsgoindigo. Or enter via Pinterest by re-pinning your favourite image from our Let’s Go Indigo board. Check here for full terms & conditions.

  8. wow what a treat!!!

  22. Omg! Its awesome every item looks great! But gotta ask: how did you guys get the perfect white polka dots?!?!?

  23. Those are actually the ones that Niki did at her studio – apparently you use the marble + tie technique then apply rice glue on the outer areas of the circle so that the dye doesn’t get through to it? Hope that helps a bit!

  24. This looks incredible. I’ve been wanting to tie-dye something ever since I saw the Asish SS14 collection (I think that was the one…). Do you remember it? There was a multicolored tie-dyed sequin dress that was amazing. I really like this solid colour option though. It feels a bit less hippy and a bit more chic.

    Gorgeous photos as per usual. xx

  25. Hi Park,

    Why don’t they inform the winner?
