If you think Madewell is purely a destination for effortlessly cool jeans and t-shirts, think again. The brand recently partnered with three talented artists to create a new line of exclusive tees, bandanas, towels, and art prints, all featuring limited-edition designs. Plus, thanks for Framebridge, you can have any print you like custom framed, making this line ideal for any burgeoning gallery wall you may be curating.

Dubbed the Madewell in Residence series, the collection includes three mini lines from all of the artists involved in the project—Angela McKay of Ohkii Studio, Kit Agar, and Claire Nereim of Plant Planet. Each artist boasts her own unique style, but all of the works feature fun, colorful, chic designs that just feel like summer.

McKay's works include colorful natural landscapes which she explains are inspired by nature documentaries about Hawaii and the history of surfing. "I wanted to capture some of that wild and fragile nature," she notes.

For Agar, her designs were born of a love of both abstraction and portraiture, specifically focusing on women. "This collection is my interpretation of strong feminity," she tells Madewell. "I like to think of the pieces complementing each other like a group of best friends."

Finally, Nereim's collection features playful representations of tropical fruits, from pineapples to watermelons. "Since living in Los Angeles, I've become really excited about native Mexican fruits—many of which grow here in my own backyard," she shares. "Tropical fruits are so beautiful and show up often in the early European botanical illustrations I turn to for inspiration again and again," the artist continues.

Ahead, take a look at the framed prints and beach towels included in Madewell's first-ever artist series. You may just find that piece your blank walls have been waiting for.
