Check this out, we currently have an online exclusive with Urban Outfitters. The jumpsuit has mesh cut outs on the shoulders, an elastic waist, and is cropped right above the ankle. The fabric is super soft and silky. And it’s proudly made in Brooklyn, NY. The perfect holiday gift for that Natty Paint lover.
Check out this cutie:
The shirts have been such a hit, they’ve even been featured in South Park and worn by Jesus!
Check out the clip below:
And to further persuade you that buying a t-shirt is indeed the right thing to do, here’s a link to an insightful GQ interview with members of Pussy Riot in prison, that describes what these women’s lives are now like behind bars.
Triangles are our favorite shape, so what hotel choice could be better for us that the Luxor, a pyramid shaped hotel??
We got to do a little bit of sight seeing before we set up our booth. We thought the fake sky ceiling at The Venetian was so cool!
And then it was time to start working…
Check out these Valentines we gave out at the trade show to get attendees to stop by our booth. The photos were taken by Ely Kay and the cards were designed by Super Rad Design. Which one’s your favorite?
We also got to step away from our booth for a moment to check out Sourcing at Magic, a trade show with factories and companies showcasing their technologies and capabilities for apparel companies.
And then we got to do very Vegasy things before heading back to Brooklyn:

We have 2 men’s t-shirts featured in Time Out New York this week!
We decided to spend our spring break this year in Austin for SXSW, a week long festival featuring the hottest, newest, and best in music, film and interactive (aka technology). We had an awesome time meeting up with old friends, making some new ones, and getting our clothing to some musicians! We didn’t get a pass for SXSW official events, but there were so many shows going on, so many people to meet, so many free things to eat and see, we had plenty to do. Just to give you an idea of some of the shows we stumbled across while wandering around Austin: Rooney, Mr. Heavenly, Rye Rye, Foo Fighters, The Strokes…the list keeps going!
We got a proper Texan welcome right after arriving at the airport with some amazing steak!
Our first show we went to was Rye Rye!
The leggings had neon yellow mesh triangles on the sides. (a lot of work making them but sooo worth it!)
And here’s a pic of Rye Rye and me after her set.
Also managed to stumble across Mr. Heavenly, the new band with Michael Cera of Arrested Development and Nick Diamonds of Islands, as well as guys from Man Man and Modest Mouse. Let’s just say the girls were getting rowdy…
Here’s a pic of some Austin BBQ we had to gear up for some more shows! mmm meat…
And for some more hearthrobby goodness, we saw Rooney play an amazing show.
The last full day we were in Austin, we swung by Rachel Ray’s Greenhouse (yes as in foodnetwork…) to hang with our friends from Andrew Charles, Hilfiger’s awesome new line which focuses on branding through musicians. It officially debuts in fall 2011, so stay tuned!
We gave him a shirt after the show and got a pic! He’s hiding but it’s him!
And in our most ambitious product placement schemes ever, we saw The Strokes play at Ladybird Lake Shore Stage in front of 30,000 people. I arrived super early for the show, made sure to be towards the front, and kept pushing through till I was at the front and center. Didn’t get shirts to The Strokes though because of a 10 ft gap between the crowd and stage, crazy crowd, and overzealous security. But we ended up RUNNING INTO TWO OF THEM, FABRIZIO AND NIKOLAI, LEAVING A BAR at 2 in the morning that same night!!! SUCCESS! Fabrizio was fighting with his girlfriend Binky (I liked him better with Drew!) but I gave Nikolai Fraiture the bassist a shirt! We didn’t manage to get a pic though, hopefully one turns up soon!
Our final meal of the trip before we went to the airport-Elevation Burger, the In n’Out esque chain of Austin!
Remember that video of Rye Rye wearing NP leggings we posted in November?
Well this happened:
Rye Rye’s mixtape was featured on Rolling Stone’s site, with a pic of her in our Molecula Silver & Sky leggings from our Spring 2010 line.
If you haven’t downloaded her mixtape yet, do it now!! Her album is coming out this month. You will SHAKE IT TO THE GROUND…AND BRING IT BACK UP!
Rye Rye also sported some NP during her performance at Art Basel in Miami this past December.
And…here’s a pic of Rye Rye & me during one of her shows in Brooklyn:
We’re currently working on an outfit for her to wear at Coachella.
I stopped in Spandex World in NYC to check out the fabric options:
There are quite a few…stay tuned!
We’re now selling at Better Than Jam at 1095 Flushing Ave in Bushwick, Brooklyn! Stop by the store to check out our reworked vintage, spandex dresses, and tees and say hi to Karin, the shop owner!
I spy some NP from the co-op front window!
Here’s a link to the other designers sold at BTJ.
I saw her with M.I.A. in September at Terminal 5 in NYC and they were insane!
Here’s a close up pic of the leggings from our Summer 2010:
We also gave M.I.A. this pink Acid Bubbles dress.
If you find a pic/video of M.I.A. in it, we’ll give you a free t-shirt from our Summer 2011 line!!
On November 3rd, Natty Paint participated in a fashion show in Baltimore with Unparagoned Models Inc. They pulled out all the stops, including having a catwalk and multiple dance routines. It was a great time and everyone looked hot in Natty Paint’s fall/winter 2010 line!
We wanted to spread the word about NP at the show, so we attached stickers and business cards to condoms (courtesy of Johns Hopkins’ Health Center!) and left them on the chairs for the show. It was a hit!
We decided to play Willow’s Whip My Hair for the show.
If you haven’t seen her video or heard the song yet, you MUST CHECK IT OUT HERE!
I learned what a flood was too, it’s when all the models walk out at the end of the show and clap.
