Opening Ceremony co-owners Carol Lim and Humberto Leon are passionate about food and food culture, to the extent that they once wanted to design a collab with Trader Joe's. For Opening Ceremony's pre-fall 2015 collection, the designers channeled their "hangry #juicecleanse side effects" into a collection. That means tops emblazoned with the words "Fresh" and "Locally Grown," embroidered "fruit stickers," and drawings of bananas and grapefruit wedges.
The colors and even the collection's silhouettes are definitely inspired by some a.m. juicing sessions, too. "Think beet, blueberry, grapefruit, and kale green, and future-modern cuts and fabrics that interpret the peel of a banana or the texture of a leafy Swiss chard," Opening Ceremony's blog explains.
