12 Jun Jonesea x Nalena: Wetsuit Surf Patterns
If you haven’t heard of Jonesea, read up. Shane Jones is a very talented designer, tailor, surfer and all around chill dude creating one of a kind wetsuits for surfers who want to stand out against the crowd.
I have been exploring the world of surface pattern design for a while. When Shane reached out to me I was very excited to collaborate. After planning a few design variations, my pattern was sublimated onto neoprene. I later cruised by the shop to watch my suit come to life. It was truly fantastic.
It’s amazing to see a patterns and garments come to life. That’s what is so addictive about creating surface pattern. You really get a sense of a the look and feel once it hits the sunlight and surf.
Below you can check out a palm leaf pattern I designed for Jonesea, inspired by the surf and retro colors of California.
…and my new custom spring suit. Surf time!!!
