I’ve been a bit under the weather recently, so I’ve been taking it slowly with this commission for my very dear and longstanding friend Teresa Collins.
Teresa is a colour consultant and designer of beautiful bespoke rugs. You can see them on the Little & Collins website:
She’s got the sharpest colour sense of anyone I know (no pressure there then!) We’ve been shopping together for decades and it’s a standing joke that I will always choose the most vibrant colours available, while she goes for understatement.
One day when I was buying a piece of Liberty’s ‘Storm’ – in this colourway, which I used for Danny Champ’s shirt
there was a friendly disagreement about which was the ‘best’ colourway So passionate was Teresa’s attachment to the beautiful dusky black, silver grey and caramel of her choice that she bought a piece and got me to make it up as a shirt.
The jury is still out on which colourway is the ‘best’; but I have to agree with her – this one is striking in its subtlety.
