It may sound weird, but I love the wallpaper. I’m not referring to the virtual graphic that sits behind the apps on your smartphone, but the traditional wallpaper that serves as both art and decoration, adding texture, color and character to your walls and ceilings.
If it’s up to me, the bolder the better. Statement wallpaper can add instant impact, completely transforming a space and behind the wallpaper, the history of the home, its owner(s) and a moment in time are captured.
I had many different wallpapers in my life so far. On reflection, each of my wallpaper choices embodies my interests, my mindset, and the people and things around me that have influenced who I am and how I learned to express myself. And it’s no surprise there’s only ever been bold and colorful wallpapers on my walls!
For the SS22 limited collection, “My life as wallpaper”, I created three imaginary female muses named Vinnie, Aretha and Zaza who describe three phases of my life; who I was, am or potentially will be at this precise moment. I imagine the unique characters of these women infused into the paper on the walls, their personalities and emotions emulated in the patterns, colors and textures bringing their individuality to life.
This collection is also created for all those women who inspire me.
To women who don’t care how and why they ride.
For women who use the bike to challenge themselves in crazy adventures, big or small.
To women who still find a moment of peace on the bike after their busy life.
Like the wheels of your bicycle, the wallpaper keeps rolling and I hope that whatever your tastes, there is something for everyone in this limited collection; whether you are a rebel rider, an active adventurer or a peaceful pioneer. “My Life as Wallpaper” will have you standing out on the roads, riding with colorful confidence, and feeling the transformative power of expressing yourself with these eye-catching designs.
