We were so excited to learn, from Oh Joy!, that Urban Outfitters is creating an Alexander Girard collection that will hit stores in July... The Girard collection for Urban will largely be bedding (which makes sense considering Girard was primarily a texile designer) The Urban design team had the run of the archives and picked some iconic Girard designs as well as some lesser known patterns from the Girard archives to use for the Urban products. As soon as we get more info. on the collection, we'll share it. But in the meantime, we couldn't resist sharing this pillow. We have a lot of Girard love!
We'll bring more news on the Girard/Urban collaboration as soon as we get it. In the meantime, here's some Girard reading to keep you busy:
Iconic Design: Alexander Girard's Environmental Enrichment Panels
Roundup: Alexander Girard Gift Ideas
La Fonda del Sol: Alexander Girard & FLOR
Thanks Sarah from MaXimo for the info on the upcoming collection!
