Delicate pastel tones move together in this captivating print inspired by a Marabou feather coat hanging in Sophie’s wardrobe. The light colour palette is subtle and fresh and has great movement, while layers of pastels are brought to life through scale and the detail.
This print is from Sophie’s personal library. Sophie likes to work with feather detailing and the idea for this print was to make the fluffy texture of a feather coat in a flat, 2D version, so it could appear on clothing initially.
“I think it works equally as well on furniture; I love the idea of making texture flat.”
