Introducing Jasper Conran at Wedgwood Floral

The new Jasper Conran Floral collection is inspired by Jasper’s love of colour, flowers and English country gardens filled with full blousy roses, freshly bloomed peonies and delicate lilac.

 “There’s nothing I like more than an armful of flowers cut fresh from the garden. Creating a floral collection for Wedgwood was an interesting journey. Floral pattern is so much part of English decorative heritage and it took time to find the right manner in which to take something so traditional and fuse this with the modernity of my Wedgwood collection.” - Jasper Conran

 This contemporary range of decorative fine bone china includes tableware and teaware as well as serveware items, allowing pieces to be mixed and matched with contrasting colours.

 The collection has been created to layer beautifully with existing pieces from the Jasper Conran White at Wedgwood collection, which also shares the same clean iconic silhouette.

PORTS 1961 Womenswear Pre Fall 2017

An off duty, relaxed scene is evoked in the Ports 1961 Pre Fall 17 collection, drawing on domestic objects and the everyday as its inspiration.

 The collection melds together the comfort of familiarity in carefree arcadian elements with the modernity of the brand's signature multi-function pieces.

 Felted winter blankets are reworked as outerwear coats..

 Commonplace still life photographs of seasonal flowers in vases brought from home, appear on knits and on crisp poplin shirts.

 A fresh perspective can be seen on the recurring theme of stripes,

 which in turn become familiar checks as they make their way through the collection.

 Inviting homespun knitwear, soft textures of brushed wool and double faced cashmere combine with warm hues of currant, caramel and turmeric to evoke a sense of gentle luxury.
