Which places inspire you? What materials are big this year? Just being out in nature and seeing the magic in our surroundings. I’m fortunate to be surrounded by beautiful beaches and mountain ranges. The colours and textures are so inspiring on a creative level and it offers a great chance to switch off and reconnect with ourselves. In terms of travel, I’ve always been inspired by Scandinavian design and their minimalist aesthetic and they have an amazing approach to sustainability. Morocco is up there for textile heaven and I’d love to explore the spirituality of India. I think we’re going to continue seeing a strong focus on natural materials such as organic cottons, linen and sustainably sourced timber. Consumers are starting to become more educated and want a sense of connection to what they buy and will gravitate to items of integrity.
