English Eccentrics launches on the web

After a five year hiatus, English Eccentrics is back with a fashion and interiors collection entitled Fairytale of London. The label, which launched its website this week, is famed for hand-printed pieces and aims to design luxury goods based on surface design and colour. The label identifies itself as creating for individuals, or rather a society of individuals. ‘We are not a large label; we are designer-makers who produce very special things, often in limited editions,’ rings their slogan. The company further promises to be a small but influential modern British design company.

English Eccentrics have had a very creative year designing a distinctive and diverse range of products from scented candles to wash bags, from men’s t-shirts to baby t-shirts, from flocked furniture to greeting cards, and their much loved fashion line in a concise range of carefully crafted womenswear, cashmere knits and scarves. The company chose Katherine Wardropper to be the brand’s first collaborative designer to create the English Eccentrics’ enigmatic sculpture pieces for this season’s collection. English Eccentrics was apparently so impressed with the originality of her work that she was invited to be their first Young Designer.
