Collaboration is an ongoing process for us, and a key part of our creative journey. As we continue to evolve, we have been able to join together with talented, like-minded artists, designers and brands to produce new and limited-edition pieces.
Whether it involves beautiful archive prints, advanced design techniques or creative research projects, we are always looking for new collaboration partners; we love to work with people who share our aesthetic.
For four seasons Morpho + Luna worked with artist Tom Gallant, who appropriates images and motifs for his intricately handmade artworks, prepared using digital techniques. Tom incorporates flora and fauna into his beguiling prints, which explore our underlying themes of mythology and morphology, as well as depicting the transition from day into night.
In his exquisite artwork for autumn/winter 17, Tom turned to the mythology surrounding Persephone, the queen of the underworld, as well as the cult of Demeter, the goddess of the harvest. Appearing across a range of robes and separates, the alluring print is inspired by Flower Piece (1639), a famous still-life painting of flowers in bloom by the Dutch artist Hans Gillisz Bollongier.
For spring/summer 18, Tom’s bespoke print brought the tropical island of Réunion to life in a print that features bold foliage, brightly coloured birds-of-paradise and, of course, Morpho + Luna’s signature motif: butterflies. The artwork, which has a rich colour palette incorporating deep blues and golds, appeared as a print on Italian silk, as well as featuring in intricate embroidery.
Our collection for autumn/winter 18 featured another limited-edition print by Tom, this time depicting a beautiful sea forest underworld. Entitled ‘Sirene’, the artwork is inspired by Sirens in Greek mythology – dangerous creatures that lured sailors to the rocky coast. The print’s ocean-like colour palette features petrol blue and emerald green, enhanced with flashes of silver.
As part of our spring/summer 19 collection, Tom’s enchanting print paid homage to the delicate hummingbird – a bird that symbolises resurrection or regeneration through its lifeless sleeping pose, transforming into a frenetic vibrancy when awoken by the sun. The print, which was used across several silk garments in a new aqua hue, also features rare and fragile orchids, as well as butterflies – a recognisable symbol of our brand.
In 2018, Morpho + Luna collaborated with MatchesFashion.com on a limited-edition pyjama set for its Pyjama Project. The luxury retailer invited 12 brands, including London Fashion Week designers Erdem and Richard Quinn, to contribute to the capsule collection. Staying true to our core values, our Colette pyjama set combines masculine tailoring with subtle feminine detailing, in an ethereal print featuring orchids, hummingbirds and butterflies.
In early 2019, we were delighted to work with luxe London concept boutique Koibird on an exclusive capsule collection. Available for a limited time only as part of Koibird’s winter travel edit, the 100% cashmere loungewear pieces were designed for elegant winter lounging, sophisticated après ski moments, or staying cool and comfortable on long-haul flights, and came in bright hues with contrasting trims.
This season we are very excited to showcase a collaboration between Morpho + Luna and the Como based silk accessories brand Kinloch Milano.
When designing Morpho + Luna’s Pre Spring/Summer 2020 Collection, we thought of the romance of Northern Italy. Kinloch Milano captured the essence of the mosaic floors, bright flowers, tangled vines and warm sunlight, into their exquisite oriental floral prints in three colour ways.
It is our hope that you carry with you the romance of Como, pure waters of Northern Italy, and the escape of weekends away where preoccupations of life are momentarily eclipsed.
