Cole & Son introduce the Vivienne Westwood Wallpaper Collection inspired by the fashion doyenneâ€™s clothing ranges.
January 5th, 2010
Vivienne Westwood has been known as a symbol of British avant-garde and for her inimitable take on traditional British style and design for more than three decades.
Westwood has enjoyed the process of having her ideas carried over into the artistic media.
“This collection is a perfect opportunity to be able to work with a heritage company like Cole & Son and to see my ideas from fashion translated into the world of interiors and wallpaper,” she says.
Vivienne’s Lace was drawn by the designer and incorporates her signature in a hand-drawn rendering of lace Tartan. Westwood has printed Tartan on the bias to give a new look.
Trompe l’Oeil Drape is based on the skirt of a famous tartan wedding dress from the Autumn-Winter 1993-94 Anglomania collection worn by Kate Moss and is printed as a panel measuring 270cm x 270cm.
The Absence of Rose artwork with crystal-like highlights first appeared in a recent collection of knitwear and the Sguiggle print wad developed from the Autumn-Winter 1981-82 Pirate collection.
Shirting has references to the stripes in men’s clothing, Magnolia was inspired by a paper cut-out and Cut-Out Lace was borne out of a fragment of antique lace.
A hand-drawn British pattern is evident in Dogtooth and Elizabethan-style insects are seen in the Elizabeth I wallpaper design.
Paper Jewellery featured in the Autumn-Winter 2000-01 collection and the idea for Union Jack was derived from an antique British flag recovered from a ship and re-interpreted with a weathered and sun-bleached appearance.
Wallpapers are available in a variety of colour choices.
The Cole & Son Vivienne Westwood Wallpaper Collection is is distributed exclusively through Radford Furnishings in Australia.
