UNIQLO announce the launch of the Spring Summer 2013 Celia Birtwell collection
Celia Birtwell is a British textile designer whose success has made her an iconic figure on the global arts scene. Famed for her collaborative work with fashion designer Ossie Clark, together they represented the epitome of 60's and 70's style. As the long-term muse of artist David Hockney, her portrait "Mr and Mrs Clark and Percy", is one of the Tate gallery's most famous paintings. Her skillfully juxtaposed prints have clothed celebrities through the decades and furnish interiors through a contemporary textiles line. Random, yet precise attention to detail makes for a unique sense of timeless style.
Celia’s archive prints have been re-imagined, re-scaled, re-worked and re-coloured into an exclusive range of t-shirts, tunic vests, shirts, leggings pants, pyjama pants, culottes, tote bags and stoles. Priced from £9.90, the collection launches into stores and online @ UNIQLO.com on March 21st and combines British Heritage with modern Japanese global style.
