Richard Al­lan was a ma­jor name in the ex­plo­sion of pat­tern and colour which de­fined the art and fash­ion of Lon­don in the 1960s. Worn by count­less celebrities, his printed silk scarves were iconic pieces of art and are still highly col­lectable to­day. In 2014 Richard’s daugh­ter Cate be­gan track­ing down her fa­ther’s de­signs; re­cre­at­ing his archive, scarf by scarf. She also be­gan re­work­ing the colours, meld­ing his work with hers to give a fresh, con­tem­po­rary feel. Now, she has re-launched the busi­ness as Richard Al­lan Lon­don, of­fer­ing both new scarves and a bril­liant col­lec­tion of framed Lim­ited Edi­tion art prints. The col­lec­tion of­fers six Richard Al­lan orig­i­nal archive de­signs from the 1960s and 70s, each avail­able in three of Cate Al­lan’s new colour­ways.
