LONDON – Topshop has teamed up with Celia Birtwell to bring the textile designer’s signature feminine prints to a whole new generation.
Birtwell, ex-wife of the late British designer Ossie Clarke and a muse to David Hockney, is best known for creating the floral prints that adorned Clark’s dresses in the 1970s.
“The design team and I had been discussing how fantastic we thought Celia was,” said Jane Shepherdson, brand director of Topshop. “When her agent approached us about collaborating on a line we leapt on it immediately.”
Birtwell and Topshop’s design team delved into the designer’s archives to produce an eleven-piece collection of floaty blouses and dresses in silk, georgette and voile.
