Fabrics based on Lucienne Day designs

Fabrics based on original designs by celebrated post-war designer Lucienne Day will be commercially available for the first time for more than 20 years next month, when retailer and supplier TwentyTwentyOne releases an 11-strong range of colourways with Glasgow School of Art’s Centre for Advanced Textiles. Day has helped to select the designs, some geometric and others distinctively Miro-like, which have been rendered digitally before reproduction (Spectators, designed in 1953, pictured). The source material comes from collections held by the Victoria & Albert Museum and Manchester’s Whitworth Museum. The fabrics will be launched to coincide with an exhibition of Day’s work – Silk Mosaics and Early Textiles – at the Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh Gallery from 7 April to 10 May.
