Wallis launches capsule range by Lollie Dunbar

Wallis, the women’s high street clothing brand, has launched a new collection by aspiring print designer Lollie Dunbar.

The seven-piece capsule collection, which features a bespoke print created by the up-and-coming textile designer, comprises a range of garments for spring and summer including scarves, dresses, wide-legged Palazzo trousers and a cropped kimono.

Dunbar said of her inspiration for the collection: "I wanted to create something that was suitable for the Wallis customer, for spring/summer 2012, but also something that would be a reflection of me as a designer.

"My main inspiration for the designs were prints seen on contemporary homeware designs and I felt these would translate beautifully into a scarf collection and the other designs flowed from there."

In addition to homeware designs, Dunbar was inspired by Egyptian Jewellery, Greek pottery and tribal tattoos. Her aesthetic also draws from the 1960s, as she admires the styles of Twiggy Lawson and Edie Sedgwick. She enjoys the strong yet feminine look of 60s-era shift dresses, jewellery and makeup.

With regard to the design process for the Wallis collection, Dunbar said: "When I first met with the design team at Wallis to discuss the collaboration I was so excited that they very much wanted me to take my own direction.

"I worked from home and so had complete independence on the designs. Throughout the process I would meet with the team to keep them up to date on what I was working on and get their feedback on how the collection was progressing."

Dunbar is currently working on a new collection to add to her portfolio.
