Beguiling blues, gorgeous greens, shots of fuchsia pink and the brightest egg-yolk yellow. These are the colours that greeted Gudrun Sjödén as she explored the fascinating island of Mallorca. It left a lasting impression on her, and one that would inspire her latest summer collection.
While in Mallorca, Gudrun was also taken with the bold, surrealist images and vibrant tones she found in the art of Joan Miró. In many of her latest creations, that influence is clear to see. Exotic flowers and the spiky, sculptural shapes of cactus plants feature throughout, adding a dramatic touch to her summery styles.
The bright colours and flowing shapes that have become the trademark of this talented textile designer are also evident in her May capsule collection – although there are also stylish pieces for those who prefer a monotone palette.
