Proudly supporting

In this exclusive collaboration with UAL, we chose a budding designer’s pattern and gave it to our talented Partners to create something unique. The result? A stunning new collection you won’t find anywhere else.

Meet the designer behind the pattern

Notonthehighstreet.com - Natasha Playell

Textile Design student Natasha Playell was a third year student at Chelsea College of Arts, UAL, when her prints were snapped up by us. Her patterns stood out for their unique aesthetic and sophisticated autumnal palette – perfect for our Autumn/Winter Collection.

“Passion for Pattern has been such a rewarding experience, watching my designs evolve into prints and finally seeing them reworked on a wide range of products”

Crafting the perfect print

Natasha was inspired by personality traits and how these could be translated into drawings, markings and paintings. She created repeats and manipulated the designs digitally to bring to life her vibrant and bold collection.

MAGNUS & BELLA

This husband and wife team hand make covetable pieces from their Birmingham studio in the famous jewellery quarter. They fell in love with Natasha’s design and after a little hand etching, shaping, polishing and plating, their Passion for Pattern cuff was born.

“We put the pattern on our napkin ring and I really loved the way it curved around its surface, so we thought it would look really beautiful on a cuff.”

JAMES DESIGN

Designer/maker Nick James hand makes unique furniture that oozes natural beauty. He jumped at the chance to embellish his handmade lampshades with Natasha’s pattern, which he thinks lends itself perfectly to textile artists.
