The other day I popped into my local Steven Alan store and stumbled across the a shirt with one of the most beautiful patterns I may have ever seen. As it turns out it was created by friend of TFIB Harriet Seed, who you may remember recently did a beautiful, folk inspired wallpaper for us. Her work for Steven Alan happened because of a partnership they created with Threadless to find interesting talent. Clearly it’s worked.
What I love about the pattern, the version at top being the one they used, is how it feels both older and contemporary at the same time. The age comes through in the mild distressing of the images, while the contemporary feeling comes through in the colors. Seeing this shirt on the rack, and of course on a person, is a thing of beauty, and it’s exciting that the folks at Steven Alan can see just how talented Harriet is. You can see more by clicking here.
