Bespoke Art as Linings

A delightful part of the creation of any coat is deciding its lining and I have had the privilege of working with some truly inspiring designs. Reflecting upon my favourite artworks that I have printed I have compiled a few below

The Garden of Earthly Delights

El Jardín De Las  Delicias De  El  Bosco


This artwork was taken from Hieronymus Bosch’s surrealistic triptych dated between 1490 and 1510 where he ambitiously depicts a paradisiacal garden. His whimsical style of storytelling seems at home amongst the likes of Lewis Carol. In the central panel the human interaction with nature is so wonderfully playful and exploratory. I love how this story unfolds in a way reflective of its original design - the coat panels open like a triptych to reveal this dramatic tale.

This second masterpiece was originally painted as an altarpiece for King Richard II who is depicted kneeling before the Virgin Mary and the Christ child, surrounded by angels. Our customer was particularly drawn to the energy of the angelic hosts whose vibrant blue gowns were made from the pigment of lapis lazuli. The scene, surrounded by flowers that symbolize the gardens of Paradise, adds a exuberant mystery to the coat.

This famous William Morris’ print was endearingly inspired by thrushes once found stealing fruit from Morris’ kitchen garden in Oxfordshire. Morris, who above all else admired the painstaking print method of indigo-discharge, first attempted the design in 1875. It wasn’t until 1881 that he finally succeeded. I love the way this intricate print is balanced with the soft, plain camel cashmere of this coat

Elisabeth Frink began to show her work in public in 1951 and for the following two decades birds occupied much of her work. Focusing particularly on the beak, claws and wings she described them as ‘vehicles for strong feelings of panic, tension, aggression and predatoriness
