English National Ballet inspire Thomas Campbell & Lily and Lionel
Summer 2013 sees two great artistic talents collide: British artist Thomas Campbell and luxury scarf House Lily and Lionel recipient of Walpole Brand of Tomorrow award. Under the guidance of Creative Director Alice Stone, this British design duo has created a collection of limited edition wearable art inspired by Tom’s work with English National Ballet.
Having spent 18 months behind the scenes to create a body of work inspired by the dancers, Tom captured the world famous ballet on canvas.
Lily and Lionel have recreated four of these iconic works into oversized (1.5m x 2m), hand-spun silk scarves crafted in Lake Como; the movement depicted in the artwork captured in the rich, rippling silk.
A Central Saint Martin’s graduate, Thomas Campbell is renowned for his large-scale paintings that hover between abstraction and figuration. These stunning works are housed in notable collections worldwide from fashion Houses to Mario Testino’s own private collection.
A unique label personally drawn by Thomas Campbell will feature on the first 20 scarves sold, allowing the wearer to own their very own pieces of highly coveted art. These limited-edition scarves will be available exclusively from Harrods and Lily and Lionel online, marking Lily and Lionel’s debut collection into the world famous department store.
