Anna Hayman is a print designer obsessed with pattern and fabric, in particular velvet! A firm favourite of the ‘dark interiors’ Instagram scene, Anna has recently ventured into clothing, and collaborated with Soop to create a stunning range of duster coats. She creates all the prints by hand in her Lewes studio, using techniques such as linoprinting and ink painting. Influenced by the Bloomsbury movement, arts and crafts and the Biba eras, Anna’s prints evoke vintage vibes while maintaining a trend led edge.
Anna says –
‘‘I was thrilled when Soop got in touch as I love the effortless shaping of their design and the fur collars and cuffs idea is so fun and indulgent. The fact you can mix and match really appeals too, or remove them completely for a sleeker look. The attention to detail and workmanship in these British made pieces is fantastic and I can’t wait to see people wearing these co-created works of art.’’
Soop are great admirers of Anna’s talents – she is one outstanding creative! We share passions for 1920s, ’60s and ’70s style, and love the way Anna evokes the best of these eras whilst applying a modern twist with the techniques, colours and textiles she uses. You really must visit her website – it’s a thing of beauty and we know you’ll relish all of her work. We’re so thrilled to be able to offer you a range of Anna’s fabrics and look forward to offering more in the future.
All of these divine velvets are printed bespoke to your order on 375gsm polyester for the greatest depth of colour. They have a dense pile with a slight shimmer, which really makes the print sing. And they are the most sensual fabrics that feel so good.
