April 2015: Heathcote & Ivory is proud to introduce ‘Achillea’ by Kaffe Fassett.
Kaffe Fassett is one of the world’s greatest practitioners of contemporary design. His passion for colour, his fascination with texture and his love of flowers have all found expression in an extraordinary body of work that includes textile design, knitwear, needlepoint, rugs, garden design, mosaics, ceramics and painting.
Achillea by Kaffe Fassett
"Experience the alchemy where, for the first time, Kaffe Fassett design is interpreted through scent and nature’s science. Knitting together the uplifting notes of Bergamot, Orange Blossom, Musk and Oleander creates a new colourful canvas."
The exuberant design featured in this first collection was inspired by a bouquet specially created for our first meeting with Kaffe. We asked Clare to choose a bouquet of flowers that she felt he would adore from her florist shop Achillea. Kaffe loves Roses and Dahlias and there is also a little bit of Achillea in there too for luck! We placed them in the centre of the boardroom table and this became the inspiration for his first design for us.
Using his popular ‘Paperweight’ textile design, Kaffe has used a collage of Roses, Dahlias and Achillea to create a lifelike abundance of flowers, brimming with vitality. Working closely with Kaffe, we have captured some of his favourite floral scents in a unique fragrance that evokes the same joyous response as his stunning design.
Below are just a few highlights from the collection...
Coming April 2015.
