The next stop in our NYC series of studio visits has us climbing up a rickety staircase just off the Lorimer L stop to the studio of Ellen Van Dusen, where she designs her eponymous clothing line Dusen Dusen. Drawing inspiration from far-flung and unexpected places such as mid-century resort architecture, Italian industrial design, Scandinavian textiles, Google maps, and handwriting, Ellen creates original prints from scratch each season. Meant to be universally flattering, the Dusen Dusen line is a Poketo favorite, and we eagerly await each season’s arrival. Read on for a glimpse inside the studio and a sneak peek of SS15, and in the meantime come shop the FW14 new arrivals at the Poketo Flagship!
