Camouflage Print for Bill Amberg….

I’m sorry for the long silence… The Architecture of Cloth, Colour and Space went to Dovecot Galleries in Edinburgh (more on this soon) and generally things have been VERY busy.

I’m pleased to share my latest collaboration with the extraordinary Bill Amberg. The undisputed master of all things made of leather Bill asked me to design a camouflage print especially for a new bag he wanted to make. Based on some photographs I took of a fruit tree this ‘Damson camouflage’ emerged after much experimentation. Chocolate browns, inky black and a creamy soft beige merge together in a delicate scattered print on canvas with rich dark leather trim. Due out for Autumn Winter 2012 this will hopefully be the ‘it’ bag of the season and I intend to test it out when I scour the jungles of deepest Indonesia looking for Ikats (lots more on this too!)

….but for now it’s camouflaging nicely with the Cherry Blossoms in Sussex…..
