H&M has long been the high street’s frontrunner when it comes to designer collaborations – Stella McCartney, Erdem, The Vampire’s Wife and many more – but this season they are making a foray into the world of interiors with a limited edition collection of home accessories created in conjunction with three incredible female artists.
‘For The Love Of Art’ sees creative duo Sacrée Frangin and artists Brunna Mancuso and Diana Ejaita bring their signature styles to a vibrant selection of home furnishings – think colour popping illustrations for your walls, vases adorned with delicate line drawings to spruce up a coffee table and graphic hand-woven blankets to add warmth to a sofa or bed.
The collection is inspired by womanhood and the outcome is a selection of unique and personal pieces that look a far cry from their high street price tags, starting at just £17.99.
The outcome is a vibrant mix - think colour popping illustrations for your walls, vases adorned with delicate line drawings t and graphic hand-woven blankets to add warmth to a sofa or bed.
First up, design duo Sacrée Frangin, made up of two childhood friends Célia Amroune and Aline Kpade, who have taken their minimalistic illustrations in warm colours and put them to a selection of modern stoneware pieces, from vases to plant pots. We love the sun-ripened oranges print vase styled with a sprawling bunch of mimosa coming out the top.
Then there’s Brunna Mancuso who paints curious portraits of women using watercolour, gouache and acrylics in a rainbow of hues. The pieces are a celebration of women and, as Mancuso says herself, “I’d love it if every woman on the planet felt as confident as the women I paint.”
They’re an easy way to add colour to your walls or a charming addition to a burgeoning gallery wall.
Finally, Italian-Nigerian artist Diana Ejaita’s contribution to the collection adds softness and texture. Her use of silhouettes in contrasting colours has put her work on the cover of some of the world’s most respected magazines. For H&M, she has designed a selection of blankets and cushions that explore stories of lineage, culture and nature.
The collection is available to shop now, and if H&M’s designer fashion collaborations are anything to go by, the pieces aren’t going to stick around long.
