A talented fine, abstract artist & our first collaborator
WHO IS KAYO SHIDO?
Kayo came to New York City from Japan over 30 years ago and has since created a name for herself among the "up and coming artists" in the New York and LA area. Her work hangs in many established galleries, offices, and commercial spaces and they range from paintings, installations, and wall mounts to decorative objects, and sculptures. Kayo's artwork has been on display in many esteemed shows and exhibits in New York, LA, and Miami since 2014 and most recently has taken her work overseas to exhibits in Spain. She is inspired by emotions and how psychology influences those emotions (she loves Carl Jung), as well as natures beauty and colors. Kayo's eye for textures, line work, and expressionistic tones is the modern yet sophisticated art Claire was looking to complement the brand and the collection's aesthetics.

PARDINGTON COLLECTIVE X KAYO SHIDO
Claire happened upon Kayos' artwork on a chance encounter while walking along the Bowery in New York City. She instantly fell in love with Kayos emotionally expressive artwork. It's full of interesting layers, colors, and linework.
For PARDINGTON COLLECTIVE’s very first collection, they came together to design an original, beautiful lining for our classic woman’s blazer, as well as, offer the original artwork born from the collaboration for sale. With Kayo's talent for fine art and Claire's eye for style, this partnership truly represents what Claire hoped to achieve with this brand: beautiful things and meaningful collaborations.
