The Alvar Aalto siena print in this shop window really caught my eye whilst I was out of town. I adore classic designs that stand the test of time.
I’m a massive fan of Florence Broadhurst and was delighted when an Australian friend sent me her biography last Christmas after hearing of my screenprinting stint at Central Saint Martins. The book was a visual delight and I instantly recognised the designs splashed across the Kate Spade window displays when I was in New York this spring. I’ve spotted the original wallpaper designs from the 60s and 70s on many book covers of late too. I just loved reading of her extraordinary life, reinventions and travels which influenced her designs. Bold, vibrant and
still appealing today. That’s what I aspire to create.
