These scarves by Ben Johnson for the L’MAD Collection literally make us weak at the knees. L’MAD is a fashion and collaborative art studio that designs and curates limited edition collections with visual artists. They have worked some ingenious people like Nico Krijno, Michael Taylor, Richard Penn and Jill Trappler. Their latest collaboration has surpassed all grand expectations we had of the brand. 

Ben Johnson is a graphic designer, director and photographer based in Cape Town, South Africa. His original approach to African iconography, inventive layering and “novel nod to MS Paint effects” have been combined to produce a sublime collection for L’MAD.
