View Slideshow

Stockholm-based creative studio Mair / Wennel turns accidental, everyday spills into a new kind of camouflage. Whether it’s a pen leak, a ketchup blob, a bloody nose, you name it, they show that it doesn’t have to be a tragedy that leads to the discarding of a beloved clothing item.

By overlapping the stains, it quickly becomes a work of art. The nature of the design allows for additional “accidents” to happen letting the pattern continue to evolve over time.
