If there’s one name which is guaranteed to get the heart of any fashion fan racing a little faster than usual, then it has to be that of Celia Birtwell. Renowned for her work with Ossie Clark in the 60s and 70s, Birtwell’s beautiful prints and whimsical approach have become sublimely synonymous with a bold, liberated sense of style. Her innovative approach to textile and print is something which continues to inspire and influence contemporary fashion, so it perhaps comes as no surprise that she is once again making her mark on the high street, this time in collaboration with Uniqlo. Fusing a uniquely British sense of style with Japanese innovation, the collection reworks Celia’s archive prints across a selection of t-shirts, trousers and accessories, and it looks set to be a range which won’t hang around for long!
Celia Birtwell for Uniqlo launches in store and online at uniqlo.com on Thursday 21st March.
