Black Milk Clothing - Couture Leggings & Swimsuits beyond R2 & 3PO
Like many a Star Wars Fan, I discovered Black Milk Clothing when their R2-D2 & C-3PO swimsuits were a geeksite phenom. But there is so much more to love about this Australian designer specializing in small runs of high quality funky leggings and swimsuits. Plenty of "basics" like cool rocker chic black leggings, and 80's homage brights are offered. But the real stars are the unique patterned pieces -- leggings, swimsuits and dresses with edgy pop prints, or perfectly placed famous art, x-rays, and ironic photo images.
New collections sell out almost instantly on the retail website; and online success has recently enabled founder/designer J Lillis to move the business (and small staff) out of the garage and into a real studio space.
