BERNAT KLEIN STUDIO
SELKIRK, SCOTLAND
JANUARY 2021

AW21 references colours from Klein’s abstract paintings, textiles and the iconic Peter Womersley architecture and interiors of Klein’s studio and home High Sunderland. Natural tones of peat, sand and forest green reference the natural surroundings, are spliced with architectural-inspired stone, camel and charcoal, and spliced with bright pops of survival orange, cobalt blue and ochre. 

Bernat Klein (1922-2014) was a visionary textile designer, artist and colourist, who established his business in the Scottish Borders in the 1950s. Klein was a maverick, challenging the preconceptions of how to use colour and traditional Scottish textile design. His fabrics were chosen for collections by Dior, Chanel, Balenciaga and Sain Laurent. His two books, Eye for Colour , and Design Matters outline a vital and infectious passion, applying his ideas and aesthetic principals to all aspects of living.

"I've been inspired by Klein's design ethos and singular vision for good design, creating his own world of creativity in the same couple of miles of remote Scottish countryside where he designed and built his house/studio/factory. His eye for interiors, textiles and colour is still as powerful and relevant today as it was then, his High Sunderland is one of my all time favourite houses."

- Kestin Hare, Creative Director
