Celia Birtwell & Uniqlo Collaboration.

Celia Birtwell is nothing short of a printed textiles idol, which is why you should be as excited as I am at her new collection for Uniqlo!

Out on March 21st, the collection features archive prints that have been reworked for a contemporary look.

Birtwell rose to fame in the 60s when she collaborated with her fashion designer husband, Ossie Clark. Known for crepe and jersey dresses, fans in the 60s-70s include Marianne Faithful, Bianca and Mick Jagger, Twiggy and Goldie Hawn. She has also previously collaborated with Topshop in 2006 with an 11 piece collection that quickly sold out.

Some favourite vintage pieces that really reflect the Ossie Clark-Celia Birtwell aesthetic:
