THE SPITALFIELDS COLLECTION S/S 2017

THE SPITALFIELDS COLLECTION S/S 2017

We have embarked on a licensing agreement with the V&A Museum and on one of our first forays into the archive we came across the work of the Spitalfields silk designers. We felt these magnificent diagrams deserved a new lease of life as fabric prints and wallpapers, and the result is HANBURY, HAWKSMOOR, HUGUENOT and VALLANCE - contemporary interpretations of 18th century designs.

HUGUENOT S/S17

HUGUENOT S/S17

This astonishing brocade fabric is certainly something the Huguenot weavers would have been mesmerised by. A semi Chinese brocade with symmetrical patterning it is a tribute to those French refugee craftsmen of 300 years ago - and looks simply dazzling with the Lewis & Wood velvets.

VALLANCE S/S17

Huguenot silk weaver and mill owner James Leman designed this beautiful filigree pattern, which we named after a street in Spitalfields with a suitably French and feminine name. Vallance comes as both a wallpaper and fabric.
