Contemporary reintroduction: House of Hackney’s ‘Little House of Hackney’

The collection re-masters and re-scales the company’s archival collection to reintroduce it into the contemporary lexicon.

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.
