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.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We can finally share Donna’s exclusive collaboration with US brand Land Of Nod. The perfect pieces to deck the halls!
We love Land Of Nod’s unique approach to designing products for children and families, with a nod towards the past and re-exploring childhood favorites. Donna’s Holiday Helpers feature on decorations, stockings, a fabric advent calendar and even tree skirt to sit your gifts. Find your nearest Land Of Nod store here.
Donna has also created special designs for Land Of Nod’s classic Executive Nod Chairs. These are comfy mini chairs created for especially kids. Meet Moose and Polar Bear.
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.
Hey everyone! LDF week is fast approaching and we wanted to share some of the fantastic events we are involved in.
At SCP East, Donna Wilson will be showcasing alongside designers Piet Hein Eek, Hannah Waldron and Roll & Hill. Donna’s exclusive window installation will interpret symbolic totems into tall towers of colourful knitted pouffes, featuring friendly motifs and animal faces drawn from nature. These will be produced by SCP, upholstered with a special combination of patterns created exclusively for LDF. Each special edition pouffe will be in knitted wool made in Scotland and available to purchase in the store. Come by and grab a great coffee too.
As you may know, Donna is a bit of a cat lover. She was so honoured to be one of ten designers to contribute towards Heal’s centenary celebration. It’s seemed like a purrfect project!
Since the completion of the Heal’s Tottenham Court Road flagship store in 1916, the Heal’s Cat has remained a feature of the famous Cecil Brewer staircase. To celebrate the 100th anniversary Heal’s has teamed up with Orla Kiely, Mia Sarosi, Louise Lockhart, Cressida Bell, Zoe Bradley, Ikuko Iwamoto, Squint Studio, Sunny Todd, Rachel Cave and Donna Wilson to create a series of specially designed cats for The Heal’s Cat Trail.
Visit the store during London Design Week in September and find these felines around the historic building. They will go into a live charity auction in November in aid of the GOSH Kiss It Better appeal.
