This Murakami inspired brand as a lot to say to those willing to listen.

They say you're only as good as your last product.
Designer Eli of The Sirens has taken that idea and expounded on that, releasing mind blowing items, each one more impressive than the last.
Fusing a love for both angels and demons, this brand utilizes many fabrication options, whether it is rhinestone applique, patchwork, embroidery or the like, and portrays a message. Whether it's duality between love and hate perfectly explained by an item from their latest collection "Love on the Mind" or a pillow interpolating the black and white tone of Jack Skellington head and combining it with the bubble gum colored pedal Takashi Murakami uses for his infamous flower design, Sirens loves contrast and they are not afraid to show it.
They released a collection the 5th of February and yes, it's all sold out. But keep an eye out for this brand. Their attention to detail, story telling and application of technique (even using multiple techniques on one garment) bodes well for their future and they're only going to get bigger from here. After all, if you hear the sirens call, you should answer. They may have something to say.
