Silvae's Prints Make Us Want to Get Outside

September 08, 2014 BY WE ARE THE MARKET

Striking, nature-inspired graphic prints by Seattle artist Olivia Knapp are the signature of Silvae. The name is Latin for “of the woods” and Silvae’s collections are inspired by shapes from nature and the Pacific Northwest.


The Spring 15 collection features a piece called "Inscaping," which uses the characters of the head and the heart as they work through introspection and re-birth. This conversation is continued throughout the collection by playing with layered silhouettes, cutouts and textural sheer fabrics.9cd4df233d31197ced3ecd6516c77e9aac9e998b_600.jpg
