This winter there's nothing we love more than getting cosy at home with mulled wine and rewatching Sex and the City. With this in mind, we developed a capsule sleepwear collection for Anthropologie which includes several exclusive pieces such as the Garden Gnomes pyjama shorts set and the Great Gatsby cami set and robe.
We are delighted to share our collaboration with Radley London, for which Karen found inspiration at the bottom of her bag. In The Bag is a five piece collection of Limited Edition bags, purses and pouches screen-printed and appliquéd with Karen Mabon illustrations.
Our recent collaboration with National Portrait Gallery took us to the streets of London, where we imagined ourselves hopping on double decker buses with Twiggy, having afternoon tea in the Ritz with William Shakespeare and exploring museums with Grayson Perry. The scarf can be found in the National Portrait Gallery Shop and on their website. We'd love to see the adventures your London scarf takes you on so add #KarenMabon to your insta posts to share them.
The Waldorf Astoria Hotel made the perfect location to preview our Sleepwear collection. Styled by Ian Tod and Laura Macintosh, the Pompadour room was transformed into a luxury boudoir with rococo touches. The model wore silk pyjama sets alongwith some accessories from the Karen Mabon A/W17 collection. These behind the scenes photographs by Aleksandra Modrzejewska give an insight into set up of the event and capture our hair and make up team Gary Lees and Ana Cruzalegui at work.
