Mystery and mysticism from Ziska of Iceland

For a country with a population of only about 320,000, Iceland seems to give birth to a surprisingly large number of wildly creative people. It must be the magic vibrations coming from the amazing lunar landscape. One of the biggest new creative talents is multimedia artist and fashion designer Harpa Einarsdottir. The first collection of her label Ziska, pictured above, is a knock-out!

Harpa is still waiting to get the collection from the manufacturers.

“It will be sold online on my website and in Eva N.Y. on Bowery, and in a store here in Iceland,” the designer informs me via a Facebook message. “I´m working on the winter collection, actually two of them so I´m quite busy these days,” she adds.

In addition to her work in fashion, Harpa (aka Ziska) is an exceptional illustrator, envisioning a mystical, sometimes scary world where good and evil reign side-by-side. (I’ve included one image of a collage from a series called “Memories of a Glacier.”
