The Peacock Heart Print
The peacock lies at the heart of our brand’s 20 year history. Whether it is the iridescent colours of its feathers or the concept of a woman dressing so that all eyes are on her, the studio always looks to the majestic bird. The Peacock Heart print, originally from SS04, is now available across our lifestyle portfolio, from stationery to wallpaper. The print has its own chapter in our book – read on for an extract in Matthew’s own words.
“Peacocks featured back in my first show, Electric Angels, as embroidery, but it wasn’t until 2004 that I first designed and printed them on to chiffon. We made one of our most popular dresses with this print. My good friend Sienna Miller fell in love with this dress and from then on I’ve always considered her a muse.”
“I’m drawn to the peacock’s symmetrical plumes, ornate detail and sumptuous colourings.”
“I love the bold graphic simplicity of this peacock print yet somehow it retains a feminine quality which I also like.”
