Icelandic artist Yr Johannsdottir, better known as ‘Yrurari’, told local media: “I have been knitting as Yrurari since 2012. For the last couple of years I’ve been working on producing my ideas on second-hand sweaters instead of knitting them from scratch.”

The female designer, who is currently based in New York in the US, said that she made three sweaters for a recycling show last autumn and the ‘Sleikur’ (‘French Kiss’) design “became a hit on Instagram”.

Similar to the ‘Tongue and Lips’ logo designed by John Pasche and made famous by The Rolling Stones, Yrurari’s design features bright red lips and a pointing out tongue.

Following the brand’s online success, many people started contacting the young designer including the stylist of Miley Cyrus who reportedly bought the original sweater.

She added: “A short while later, Erykah Badu contacted me and she’s been quite lovely.

“First she bought the only sweater I had left and then I got to meet her in person last week when she was in New York for a couple of days.”

Yrurari said that she plans on publishing the knitting pattern for the ‘French Kiss’ sweater that Miley Cyrus now owns.
