Allsorts - Spring / Summer 2020
Donna Wilson’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection, Allsorts, is a visual feast of cushions, creatures, tableware and towels. Donna mixes monochrome pattern with bold brushstrokes of colour in a fresh take on her familiar style.
This small-but-perfectly-formed collection features woven cotton cushions, throws and robes, hand-painted stoneware ceramics produced by skilled craftswomen in Portugal, and two brand new towel designs. They’re accompanied by a selection of Donna’s signature creatures and cushions knitted in Scotland from softest lambswool, and colourful melamine tea trays made in a small factory in Belgium.
Donna Wilson on Allsorts:
This collection is an amalgamation of a bold, blocky graphics with splodges of painterly colour. I’ve added a pinch of humour with my playful motifs – including little faces – and the result feels like a fresh expression for a new year. My focus for 2020 will be upon designing and making quality products that will be loved and treasured for years to come.
Donna will be launching her SS20 collection to the trade at Top Drawer London from 12-14 January 2020, and all products will be available to purchase online from mid-February 2020.
