Downtown favorite Obesity and Speed‘s Lyz Olko unveiled her new range last night, July 23, for Curve Boutique.

Olko’s signature distressed, re-worked style is encapsulated in the Back to the Land collection, which features 15 pieces created with an emphasis on recycled materials. You’ll find women’s tees, sweatshirts and army jackets, with a couple of men’s designs available too.

With each item being hand-made by Olko herself in New York using a mixture of graphics, embroidery and tie dye, this is a truly one-of-a-kind collection.

The styles will be available at both the New York and Los Angeles stores.

Curve and Olko held a launch party at the boutique last night, with guests including Stacey Bendet, Jacquelyn Jablonski, Hanna Bronfman, May Kwok and Cleo Wade.
