House of Hackney launched its “Little House of Hackney” collection, remastering and rescaling the company’s archival collection to reintroduce it into the contemporary lexicon. The line – which has a subdued color palette foregrounded by intensely intricate designs – has floral motifs and beastly drawings. “Baleana,” for instance, has whales that float past a curtain of slate blue pinstripes. Meanwhile, “Alice in Wonderland” — a print originally designed by arts and crafts artist C.F.A. Voysey – has a miniaturist’s rendering of the classic tale. Other creatures featured in the collection include flamingos, zebras seemingly suspended from geometric jungle vines, and a pride of giraffes camouflaged within the pattern of a cheetah-print pelt.
