About Eley Kishimoto
Eley Kishimoto are the highly acclaimed fashion and textile designing duo was founded in 1992 when Wakako Kishimoto and Mark Eley met as students in New York.
It was their eye-catching patterns for other designers including Jill Sander, Hussein Chalayan, Alber Elbaz, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen – that established their reputation initially, patterns so assertive they often stole the show. Their garments are epitomised by simple shapes which have taken on softer lines in recent seasons and are especially popular in the UK, Japan and the US.
Their effortless combination of interior design and fashion is reminiscent of the holistic approach adopted by designers during the Art Deco period. Since 1998 they have produced twice-yearly collections and their colourful shows have become one of the highpoints of London Fashion Week. Audacious eclecticism has become their trademark. “Graphic” is how Eley Kishimoto characterise their work. Their patterns are drawn by hand, not computer generated.
Eley Kishimoto donated a deckchair design for Deckchair Dreams in 2006.
You can buy their limited edition deckchair from our online shop and help support the Royal Parks.
