Metal Strips, an interlocking geometric grid pattern, references the metal salvage pieces Simpson used in his work. Vibrant Simpson-inspired colors are combined with tarnished metal tones for a new take on classic stripe patterns.
Reflector, a small-scale geometric pattern, features a unique construction with an incredibly soft hand. A bright PVC yarn gives the fabric a beautiful metallic sheen.
Signs is a whimsical hexagon pattern that combines bright colors with neutrals to produce sophisticated combinations, inspired by Simpson’s use of road signs in his work.
Spokes features an abstract interpretation of the wheels, bicycle spokes and blades that gave his sculptures their dynamic energy.
Whirligig, the collection’s statement piece, features large-scale whirligigs that float amidst bold, graphic colors. This pattern elegantly depicts Simpson’s story through fabric.
Wilson features an abstract stripe pattern in homage to Simpson’s hometown. This pattern adds visual interest and levity to rich tones and classic neutrals.
