Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

We’ve picked some premium floral prints from the archives of textiles pioneer William Morris

William Morris was a clever chap. He was a poet, novelist, translator and social activist, but he was most celebrated for his work as a textile and interiors designer at the heart of the British Arts & Crafts movement in the Victorian era. So when we had the chance to link up with the William Morris Gallery in east London and have a rummage around in their archives to look at his unmistakably bold nature-meets-geometric patterns, we jumped at the chance. We’ve chosen a few of our favourites and applied them to everything from ties and pocket squares to PJs and shirts – this example, taken from Morris’s commission for Compton Hall, is my pick of the bunch.
