7mesh Apparel has partnered with Canadian artist Kate Zessel to create a new collection.
“I liked the idea of having a full story behind the kit,” said Zessel. “I tried to create pieces that had enough elements that you could pull each one out, like a circle with layers of mountains and ocean, ferns, even a topographical map.”
To pull together the design’s motifs, maps and recognisable places, Zessel was keen to ‘tell a story above all else’. “I tried to ensure everything flowed together to create a cohesive design,” she said.
“It’s great having so many local references, but the overall illustration still has to look good on the rider!”
The collection includes limited-edition interpretations of the Horizon jersey for men and women, along with the MK3 cargo bib short for men and the WK3 cargo bib short for women.
