About The Product
The artist and designer Robert Stewart was a contemporary of Lucienne Day and one of the few designers she admired. Together they pioneered British textile design after the war. A prolific creator, Stewart produced paintings, tapestries, graphics, ceramics and murals but it is his textile designs that have been the most influential, particularly those produced by Liberty. 'Boat Race' was created by him in 1954 and revived by Liberty in the 90s. A Liberty design classic from the archive exclusive to Simon Carter. Boat Race is an abstract composition with the feeling of a stencil collage, inspired perhaps by Miro. Streamlined and canoe-like horizontal forms are juxtaposed with tall, elegant rhomboids and interspersed with stylised tiny floral and leaf stalk accents. Cleverly rendered in a palette of primary colours, translucency is evoked as the forms change hue where they overlap the mid cerulean ground. This is Modernist fabric design at its best. 'Moore' three button cuff.

" Quite the best collection of mens shirts available on the internet today! The designs are great - I particularly like the 1950s 'Festival of Britain' styles - this is one of the best! Also excellent service via email with sizing etc. "
