- GIRLS ONLY -
"Working on this jacket with Alice was really special. While she lives in Paris and I am in London, we have been friends for years, since before either of us worked on these projects. Collaborating in this way perfectly reflects the ethos of Girls Only and I hope that other women will feel this when wearing the jacket."
Girls Only is a roving residency program, studio space and publishing body founded by British curator Antonia Marsh aimed at supporting female artists. Since its inception in 2014, the project has travelled to New York, London, Copenhagen and Mumbai to showcase both local and visiting artists.
With the funds from the sale of the jacket with Alice Balas going straight towards future projects, this collaboration between friends exemplifies the kind of relationship that Girls Only seeks to foster: mutual encouragement and support between women! The sharp, bold lettering represent the strength and prowess of the female individual, while the silver leather accents embody the liveliness of her spirit.
