Introducing the Kit Kemp x Andrew Martin Launch
The Kit Kemp x Andrew Martin launch was held on the 11th September at the Andrew Martin showroom on Walton Street. Catered by Firmdale, press were welcomed with a delicious breakfast including a wide variety of patisseries.
Kit Kemp and Andrew Martin have always had a close working relationship and when Kit won the 2008 Andrew Martin International Designer of the Year Award, the seed was planted for this exciting design collaboration.
Dusky colours & folk vibes
The collection reflects Kit’s unique and stylised voice and Martin’s long-standing global knowledge.
Fiona McCarthy led the Q&A and she focused on how the duo came up with the collection and the reasons behind each fabric and wallpaper.
Kit and Martin explained that the designs had been woven and printed on a variety of natural base cloths: linen and viscose, chunky twills and chintz cotton, with elements of appliqué and embroidery which add an extra layer of unique skill and hand craftsmanship to the collection.
Journalists, influencers and bloggers couldn’t believe their luck to have both Kit and Andrew in the same room.
Press were then given the opportunity for one-on-one interviews and to be shown around the showroom to see the rest of the collection.
Later in the evening, Andrew Martin guests were invited to the Showroom for drinks and canapes and further discussion unravelled about the collections launch.
