September 2014—Graham & Brown launch their latest wallpaper collaboration with style icon and founder of Biba, Barbara Hulanicki.
The launch of a new wallpaper collection coincides with the V&A’s new book, The Biba Years, celebrating the 50th anniversary Hulanicki’s fashion brand, Biba, which started a fashion revolution. Her latest, exclusive wallpaper collection with Graham & Brown is inspired by dress prints used in the early Biba decade, 1964-1974. Two new wallpaper designs, The Hypnotist and Funky Flora are reflective of Barbara’s passion for creating iconic designs. The Hypnotist is inspired by the monochrome geometric prints of Op Art and recreated from an original Biba jumpsuit. Funky Flora is inspired by an original Biba fabric, featured on pieces including dresses, hats and jumpsuits. This is the third collaboration between Graham & Brown and Barbara Hulanicki, who both share a passion for the constant reinvention of design. Barbara says, “It’s incredible to think that I’m creating wallpapers inspired by dresses I designed 50 years ago. The new wallpaper collection is striking—rich in colour and pattern and the designs make a stylish interiors statement. I’m delighted to share a little of Biba’s 50 year history and bring a fashion revolution to the home!”
