It was over 30 years ago when I completed my graphic design degree, but my passion for art and design has never left me.
I knew I wanted to express my creativity. And I wanted to do it in a way that was accessible to everyone, not just something hanging in a gallery. I needed to think about how I could help people add a little piece of art to their everyday clothing. I wanted to make something that was practical, colourful and fun - mismatched socks.
What can be more fun than mismatched socks? Their ability to be worn just as easily with suits as with fun summer dresses makes them the perfect way for everyone to express themselves. I wanted my socks to be a way to express my love of design and colour, so to do that I looked at designs I loved. I love the crisp lines and bold, bright shapes and colours of modern art. This is seen in the patterns and opposing colours of my socks.
It’s very clear that I am drawn to block shapes, with most of my designs featuring polka dots of all different sizes, or fun twists on square designs. It’s not hard to imagine me strolling through a modern art gallery and picking up on the inspiration.
The Ladybird socks are a unique twist on the animal kingdom, combining the unique patterns of both zebras and ladybirds. Two recognisable patterns, two odd socks!
As much as these socks stand out and show what Lambchopssocks is about, they aren't my favourite ones. The Black White Squares Socks, with their fun pops of pink, are the ones I just can’t stop wearing. They so perfectly show the inspiration from the crispness of modern art, mixed with my love of a pop of colour. The perfect wearable but fun odd sock.
Lambchopssocks knows that it's the little things that can help with the everyday. Put on your favourite pair of fun socks, and let yourself follow your dream!
