KINKED — Upcycle
Art, fashion and green living combine to create wearable art from upcycled vintage designer classics. From beautifully worn denim to retro sweatshirts, each vintage find is assessed to ensure it is flawlessly constructed before being lovingly transformed into an exquisite one-of-a-kind piece.
Elle Quinton is a Karoo “meisie” at heart. While studying law at Stellenbosch, she was scouted by a modelling agency and spent 11 years modelling in the UK and Europe. Candace di Talamo is a South African artist and illustrator who once-upon-a-time, in the prenatal era, created special effects for films in London.
It was fate (and offspring) that brought these kindred spirits together: and lockdown that gave them the time to launch Kinked.
