& Other Stories’ latest collaboration turns data into the chicest outfits


by Erin Lindsay
08th Nov 2019

The high street store collaborated with Information Designer Giorgia Lupi to form the new collection


One of our favourite high street stop-offs & Other Stories has landed a new collaboration that pairs data and design together in the chicest way. And it’s already making waves — the puffer jacket, a key piece from the collection, sold out almost immediately.

The collection was formed with New York-based Information Designer Giorgia Lupi, who, through her innovative methods of blending data science with art and design, has conceptualised hand-drawn printed designs around three groundbreaking female scientists.

Ada Lovelace, who is considered to be the first computer programmer, inspired Lupi to create a colourful geometric pattern based on the algorithm that was Lovelace’s most important work.

& Other Stories

NASA astronaut Mae Jemison was the first woman of colour in space, and inspired Lupi to create a pattern based on her orbits and experiments in space.

Lupi said: “The success of her mission is a celebration of her dedication to overcome challenges and the realization that to create change you need multiple perspectives. The pattern designs are a visualisation of the orbits and a testament of her memory from her journey into space.”

 

And finally, author and environmentalist Rachel Carson was commemorated in colour-coded embroidery, visualising the analysis in her seminal book Silent Spring.

“The pattern is built to reveal the interconnected structure and contents of her book — represented by the different techniques on the garment, such as embroidery and colour codes,” said Lupi.

& Other Stories

We love that & Other Stories is using their platform to collaborate on such an innovative project — especially one that calls attention to the achievements of these inspiring women. The gorgeous clothes? Just a bonus.
