50th Anniversary Collection - December
5th December 2022
Rounding off this landmark year, we have taken the opportunity to bring one of Skopos’ first ever designs again to the forefront. Alpha 11 (design number 11) made its first appearance in the 1970s.
Effective in its simplicity, the design was a two-colour print featured in the original Skopos folder. A design that explored the relationship between shape and pattern, to form a simple repeat and horizontal stripe on a coloured background. The design team have revisited the relationship between positive and negative spaces to form an abstract graphic vertical stripe, tapping into the current trend for retro design and1970s styling. Renamed as Enteka (Greek for eleven) this new design is being offered in 2 colourways for December.
Partnering Enteka for December our second design appears as a seasonally-apt icy medallion; Pompadour was a hero design within the Skopos Erddig &Elle collection from 2012. A collection of contrasting designs, masculine versus feminine, Erddig & Elle was one of our last wet-printed collections, which fused the idea of wet print with modern digital printing techniques within one collection. Playing with designs on silk-style cloths, digitally printing motifs on velvet and including a raised minerfoam relief design, the collection was experimental in every way. Pompadour injected elegance into the collection in the form of a large-scale motif, perfect for curtains, cushions and bedding. A move on from Pomadour, our Nivis design retains the icy twinkle, shifting tone and texture into a modern interpretation for the Anniversary collection.
