Skopos, the fabric brand that is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, has just dropped two new designs; Vintage Camelia and Delta Geometric.
Camomile Lawn, first launched in 2006, was the perfect blend of classic glamour and contemporary sophistication launched under the Jamasque Label. The label was inspired by historical themes, floral imagery, archive prints and weaves. Timeless designs, including florals, vines, a decorative paisley scroll and soft striped designs, partnered in the original pattern book, with sumptuous accents, portraying the romance of English country life. The collection comprised of 5 printed and 1 woven design, all linked together by colour. ‘Camelia’ was inspired by a surface printed floral wallpaper document dating back to the late 19th Century. The original design was larger in scale and was interpreted for flatbed screen printing using hand separation techniques.
Revisiting this design, Skopos has decreased the scale and looked at an interpretation which marries vintage colours and contemporary tones. Vintage Camelia has been developed for our Anniversary collection. The design is now digitally printed, therefore in alignment with the original surface print technique, allowing the graphic block-printed outlines to remain. Vintage Camelia has also been re-imagined in a modern colour palette, ideal for today’s trend for maximalist interiors.
Delta was an early Skopos geometric design, originally launched back in the mid 70s. Known as ‘Design Number 14’, it was part of a range of large-scale geometric designs, appearing in a brochure, aimed at the hotel and leisure market.
Originally screen printed by hand, in a single colour, the design has been reduced in size from the previous Delta design, translated into a soft tonal, two-colour design and digitally printed on our upholstery velvet, Varese, giving a luxurious twist to the original drape fabric.
Designs for April are available on any of the brand’s standard print base-cloths. Both designs are being offered in two colourways for immediate order.
