During the day Stephanie D’Heygere can be spotted around the Maison Martin Margiela headquarters in Paris, where she works as part of the fashion house’s extensive collaborative of designers. By night she runs Been by D’Heygere (“been” means “leg” in Flemish), a line of leggings featuring hyperrealistic digital prints of food, such as salmon skin, pineapple and watermelon rind.
Each of D’Heygere’s designs starts off as a photo of a compelling texture. The images are digitally collaged into prints and sent to a factory in Holland, which uses heat transfer to print the design onto Lycra. To ensure consistency, each pair of leggings is printed individually.
