wallpaper1007SHOWSTUDIO: Forget-me-Knot, by Julie Verhoeven. Comissioned by Peter Saville for Nick Knight’s SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution, an exhibition held at Somerset House in conjunction with London Fashion Week 2009, this design makes explicit references to Japanese erotica in a French 18th Century Toile de Jouy style.

Barneby Gates worked with the team at SHOWstudio to turn Verhoeven’s design into a wallpaper, first creating a workable pattern repeat, advising on printing technique and finishes, and finally put the wallpaper into production in time for the exhibition. Available directly from
