Laurs Kemp’s video premier for her new clothing line, Your Motion Says, is sartorially inspiring while offering an enticingly eerie take on the fashion lookbook.
Laurs Kemp is a fashion designer to keep an eye on. The designer-in-residence at the newly opened Backtalk West, Kemp combines effortless minimalism with lush vintage fabrics to create clothing that occupies the soul of Portland cool, that enigmatic space that requires artistic lines, a casual slouch and a wink towards the bohemian.
The video departs from the usual floral and pastel territory of spring fashion, and follows the Your Motion Says it-girl as she prepares for a night out in a washy dreamscape of colors and modern dance with a sinister twist.
For the official Your Motion Says line premiere celebration, come to the Composition Gallery Pop-Up Shop (310 NW 6th Ave) this Friday, June 19th from 7:00-9:30. Have a glass of wine and shop the new line as well as new designs and curated vintage from Laurs Kemp, Kayleigh Nelson, and Hillary Boles of TannerAnn.
