“Every good painter paints what he is”
These shorts are named after the American abstract expressionist painter Paul Jackson Pollock (1912-1956). Pollock used liquid household paint and reached the height of his fame in the late 40’s, his ‘drip period’. He painted by pouring and dripping paint on canvas. Peggy Guggenheim even commissioned Pollock to paint a 2,5 by 6 meter mural in her house. Pollock’s unique way of painting in this period is a big inspiration to the way Hul le Kes uses natural dye.
This garment is made from cognac brown color cotton (96%), elastane (4%) with a light satin feel. The material comes from a left-over batch in the Netherlands.
Only 7 Pollock Shorts have been made from this material!
