Fabric of Life



about our offical series art

We have once again collaborated with talented artist Alice Shirley, who specializes in creating lush, detailed paintings full of flourishing diversity to create a work of art capturing the spirit of the "Fabric of Life."

Since 2012, Alice Shirley has an ongoing collaboration with the fashion house Hermès Paris creating designs for silk scarves, enamel jewellery, beachwear and Home. In 2013 Alice collaborated with Synchronicity Earth to produce artworks and bespoke hand-painted masks for the Biophilia Masked Ball held in November 2014 at the Natural History Museum in London. Her disciplines include drawing, painting in oils, acrylic, watercolour and ink, sculpture, print making and photography.


Her studio is based in Camden, London.
