Naughty Embroidery

I have been cruising the internerd today checking out some very cool indie craft designers' sites which I will share with you in coming posts. First one I'll tell you about is Nicole Locher who makes sweet, prim and proper tops and accessories, except that they all have a rather naughty phrase embroidered on them. Warning - if you are easily offended by 4-letter words, please don't visit this site!

Nicole is a Swiss designer, based in Paris, who takes her inspiration from flea markets in Paris and London. Her tops and accessories, at first glance, look very prim and proper with traditional embroidery of flowers etc. But then she includes such statements as "Will f@#$ for shoes", "I don't play nice", "I like it rough".

They all look beautifully made and I love the contrast of traditional embroidery with very modern, in-your-face phrases. She seems to be a designer pushing the limits a bit, and having fun doing it.
