We’ve been mesmerized by Shadowplaynyc for quite some time now. We first fell for their celestial skirts and dresses, and now the pair behind the fashion line, Ali and Xime, have released an adorable line of tights for your inner solar system geek. Dubbed “Galaxy Tights,” the fall staple features a pretty print inspired by a Hubble Telescope photograph of the Small Magellanic Cloud Nebula. Get a closer look at the tights below, and head on over to the Shadowplaynyc pop-up shop to pick up a pair.
Xime and Ali, the two NYC-stationed fashion designers behind Shadowplaynyc, just released a killer line of celestial dresses with quirky, interchangeable silhouettes. We had fallen hard for their space-inspired mini-skirts not too long ago, but this expansion into kooky frocks that boast images from the Hubble Telescope and options galore in terms of wearing them — from loose to fitted, and to necklines that can be transformed into a high, halter-esque silhouette from a loose t-shirt shape — are really magical. Travel into space with the lovely collection below, and visit Shadowplaynyc for more stunning galactic designs.
Armed with sewing machines and custom-printed fabrics, Xime and Ali — the two fashion designers behind Shadowplaynyc — are conquering Etsy with a jaw-dropping collection of handmade, celestial fashions. Now, the duo are showing us inside their studio with images of outerspace and David Bowie in his Ziggy Stardust days lining the exposed-brick walls, and mesmerizing yards of fabric scattered about. Without further ado, glimpse inside Xime and Ali’s workspace, and checkout what inspires them — their handle comes from a Joy Division song — after the jump.
