CRYSTAL ART OUTFITTERS LAUNCHES SUMMER 2016 COLLECTION
Clothing and accessories brand Crystal Art Outfitters brings Carol Roullard’s unique micro-crystal fine art prints to bikinis, bathing suits and summery dresses.
MOORPARK, CA – May 2, 2016 – Crystal Art Outfitters, a new apparel and accessories brand founded by artist Carol Roullard, released its Summer 2016 Collection today. The bikinis, one-piece bathing suits and summery dresses feature stunning scenes and patterns from photographs of homegrown crystals Ms. Roullard took through a high-power microscope.
The garments are perfect for summer both in style and in print. Unlike many textiles, each garment of Ms. Roullard’s crystal clothing features a complete image instead of a repeatable pattern giving the wearer a unique, stunning look.
“I chose images found in my micro-crystal art that exude a carefree lightness, perfect for summer activities,” says Founder and Artist Carol Roullard. “My customers will stand out, whether they are pool-side, enjoying the sun and salty air at the beach, or out and about for brunch or cocktails.”
Ms. Roullard seeks to introduce those outside of the fine art scene to the amazing world of micro-crystals. She combines chemistry, micrography, photography and a keen eye for design to create remarkably unique garments and accessories.
Carol Roullard’s artwork challenges viewers to interpret new worlds, fantastic landscapes, magnificent seascapes and other unanticipated sights. “The entire process of creating my micro-crystal art truly excites me; from growing the crystals to witnessing the awe in people’s expressions when viewing an art piece, garment or fashion accessory for the first time,” says Ms. Roullard. “Everyone sees something different. People are captivated by the abstract, yet inexplicably familiar shapes and structures in the crystal formations.”
