An iconic fashion name from the 1960s comes to contemporary interiors.
Richard Allan was a major name in the explosion of pattern and colour which defined the art and fashion of London in the 1960s. Worn by countless celebrities, his printed silk scarves were iconic pieces of art, still highly collectable today.
Working with major couture houses and selling through luxury stores all over the world, his star remained in the ascendant until 1982, when he sold the business, including his complete design archive.
Richard’s daughter Cate, also a designer, worked with him in the business until his retirement and then followed her own career. In 2014, she began tracking down her father’s designs; recreating his archive, scarf by scarf. She also began reworking the colours, melding his work with hers to give a fresh, contemporary feel. Now, she has relaunched the business as Richard Allan London, offering both new scarves and a brilliant collection of framed Limited Edition art prints.
New: Six Limited Edition Art Prints
Each in three colourways
The collection offers six Richard Allan original archive designs from the 1960s and 70s, each available in three of Cate Allan’s new colourways. Hand printed on museum grade paper in Limited Editions of 100, each print is embossed with the Richard Allan London seal, and produced in the UK.
Measuring 79cm x 81cm, they come framed in black, white, gilt or silver frames and cost £990 each. Unframed prints cost £750 each.
Bespoke colourways, sizes and special frames are available to order.
