celia birtwell + uniqlo

the japanese brand uniqlo has teamed up with british textile designer celia birtwell.  birtwell created many of the iconic prints designer ossie clark used in his collections in the 60s & 70s & she has since collaborated with topshop & john lewis.

"i've spent my life designing textiles so i have quite a big archive," birtwell, 71 told vogue uk.  "i was able to go through the library and reference certain moments. when i met the people from uniqlo japan, we went through the sketchbooks and reference files together and they hooked into the designs they liked. i then developed those selected specifically for uniqlo."

the collection will be available march 21st in stores.

can you imagine her archives??? swoon.
