Collaboration | Happy 150th John Lewis

JL150

I have had the pleasure of working with John Lewis for over 25 years; we’ve built a strong relationship and have developed many exquisite cufflinks and accessories together, so it’s a delight to collaborate with the team at John Lewis to celebrate the 150th anniversary of such an iconic British department store. Their extensive archive of beautiful prints provided me with some real inspirations to design an exclusive range of Simon Carter and John Lewis 150 year cufflinks.

One of the original archive designs that sparked inspiration is the floral Cummersdale print originating from 1864. Adapting this intricate design we have created a laser engraved gun metal cufflink and a base metal pattern surrounded by opaque teal enamel.

As a best selling print of the 70s and 80s, we hope to reignite the Daisy Chain prints success. Designed by fabric design legend, Pat Albeck, we have used the floral detailing of this classic print for two tonal cufflinks in shades of magenta and teal opaque enamel in a square base metal case.

The psychedelic seventies inspired geometric Opus print caught my eye as a fantastic opportunity to create a colourful yet stylish cufflink. Using a base metal oval case with the opus pattern in translucent enamels, this design will add a pop of colour to the modern mans formal wardrobe.
