Deadly Ponies Celebrates NZ Artist Len Lye

Deadly Ponies worked with the Len Lye Foundation on brand's vibrant new collection

Celebrated New Zealand artist Len Lye’s exuberant and experimental films are the inspiration behind an exciting new capsule collection from Deadly Ponies. Two years in the making, the brand’s creative director Liam Bowden worked closely with the Len Lye Foundation to explore and discover the artist’s psychedelic films, such as Rainbow Dance and Trade Tattoo.

Stills were then expertly transferred with paint onto a series of leather bags, wallets and scarves, which are available from today. The vibrant printed pieces are a new direction for Deadly Ponies designer Liam, who is also celebrating 10 years of his brand in 2015. See stockists and shop the full range.
