For a label barely a year old, Brisbane, Australia’s Black Milk Clothing is achieving big things! From humble beginnings sewing on his kitchen table, designer James Lillis now has the reputation of running one of the most exciting designer legging labels around.
“My idea was fairly simple – I would teach myself to sew, buy some beautiful stretch fabrics, and make insane leggings. Then I would find girls who would get into them. Girls who wanted leggings that could pack a little more punch than the ones on offer at your average department store.”
While the actual business of things wasn’t so simple (anyone heard of that recession thing?) Lillis stayed true to his plan, and thousands of leggings later Black Milk is a full-time effort, achieving success and press worldwide. Heck, these leggings are so on point they appear to have “inspired” a similar release by a certain starlet’s leggings label.
But back to the leggings. 2010 has seen the release of Black Milk’s Printed Collection – a range of printed leggings sure to snap the necks of both guys and girls! Words don’t do these babies justice – you’ll have to scroll further to check pics and see exactly what I’m talkin bout!
To pick up a pair before they sell out (oh yeah, these joints are limited edition!) head over to the Black Milk Store. While you’re there, check out some of the other designs, especially the cult-class chain-detailed “Cages”.
Sure we’re mid-summer in the Southern Hemisphere right now, but next payday Imma pick me up a pair of Geishas…or Pheonix…or maybe Blood Bath…
