Donna Wilson x Makoto Kagoshima

4 April 2017

I’m really excited to announce a new collaboration with one of my favourite ceramicists Makoto Kagoshima. You may have seen coverage on my Instagram page. I first discovered his work at Gallery Eclectic in London and I fell in love instantly. Every piece is an artwork featuring delicately, painted illustrations inspired by the natural world. I just love the animals.

We created a series of limited edition knitted creatures, some of my favourite creatures have been brushed with Makoto’s signature floral patterns.  Find larger-than-life lotus flower cushions for your home and delicate flower bag charms that add a touch of colour to a beloved bag. The limted edition range will be available to buy exclusively from Isetan department store in Shinjuku, Japan only from the 5th April.  There will be an exhibition of all the products alongside British ceramist John Julien.

Donna Wilson for Secret Linen Store

3 April 2017

We have been working very closely with Secret Linen Store to produce a collection of luxurious bedding. I’m so happy to reveal these 3 new designs based on my favourite patterns.

Introducing ‘Blah Blah’ and ‘Scandi’ in duvet sizes to fit all beds and traditional housewife style pillows. The colours have been adapted in a restful palette which feels contemporary and fresh. ‘Menagerie’ is catered for kids so is available as a single and double bed set. The inner child in me would happily have it for my own bed!

The Secret Linen Store is an online store, run by sisters Molly and Harriet. It’s been a delight working with them. They design and produce bed linen using the finest quality cotton yarns with superior thread counts, directly sourced from the best factories in Portugal.

The bed linen will be available to buy exclusively from both Secret Linen Store and the Donna Wilson website from Monday 3rd April 2017.

Scandi is inspired by Swedish folk art and my travels around Europe and Iceland.

With Menagerie, I wanted to create something really playful and adventurous with odd animals and birds hiding in the trees.

NEW! SCP Earthenware Bear and Bird

6 March 2017

New to store is the beautifully made Bear and Bird earthenware figures. Made in collaboration with London store SCP.

The creative process happened in one of the last remaining factories in Stoke-on-Trent. It’s so fantastic to be able to travel there, meet the makers and watch how the products develop into the finished piece. I loved looking at how different glazes can completely transform the piece.

Donna Wilson for the Whitney Museum of Modern Art

13 October 2016

Donna was thrilled to create some very special edition Cuddly Cloud cushions for the prestigious  Whitney Museum of Modern Art in New York City, USA.

Six strikingly bright colours were chosen based on the surrealist painting La Fortune, 1938 by Man Ray which is part of the Whitney’s permanent collection.

The Whitney Museum is located in the trendy Meatpacking district, between the Hudson River and the spectacular High Line park. The new purpose built building (designed by Renzo Piano) is a must see with works by the great American contemporary artists such Jeff Koons, Frank Stella and Andy Warhol. We just had to have a nosey in the wonderful Museum shop to see the finished result.

Choose from small, medium and large Cuddly Clouds, made with the softest lamsbwool. You can buy these now directly from the Whitney Museum Shop or online here. Our original colours are still available to buy directly from our website here.
