For the third installment of their Scarlett series, Lee® invited illustrator, and self-proclaimed doodle bomber, Hattie Stewart to customise iconic Lee® styles, the Scarlett High jean and denim Rider Jacket.
London based Hattie creates bold and playful designs that transcend art and fashion. The characters and slogans are tongue-in-cheek and remind us not to take ourselves, or the world around us, too seriously.
As Hattie explains, “This project was a lot of fun as I was able to use motifs like the eyes and heart characters that are synonymous with my work. I always try to keep the sense of play and experimentation in my work, to keep everything fresh and invigorating.”
As Lee® approaches their 130th anniversary the Scarlett Icon project explores what it takes to be an icon. Hattie adds, “Time. Time makes an icon – it can’t be forced or created – it takes a lifetime body of work to create an icon.” We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
The customised pieces will be seen on Leomie Anderson (@leomieanderson) while lucky customers can also pick up a limited edition Lee® x Hattie Stewart patch from Lee®’s Covent Garden store.
