Brokered by IMG, Australian womenswear designer Anthea Crawford’s 19-piece collection for fall and winter will feature Van Gogh’s bold colors and signature styles across dresses, blouses, t-shirts, trousers, coats and jackets.
“It’s our 45th year of Australian style, and to celebrate we have collaborated with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam,” says a spokesperson for Crawford. “Timeless beauty, expressive color and irresistible texture plays have always been central to Anthea’s vision. It’s been a great honor to work so intimately with the priceless masterpieces of Vincent van Gogh, which have inspired us for so many years.”
“We are very proud to collaborate with Anthea Crawford and develop these sophisticated garments together, especially in these challenging times,” says Mark Minkman, managing director, Van Gogh Museum. “This partnership enables us to inspire people with the art and heritage of Vincent van Gogh combined with the quality and characteristic prints of Anthea Crawford. Every purchase of this Anthea Crawford x Van Gogh Museum collection supports the work of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.”
“Vincent van Gogh’s work has become a mainstay of culture and the Van Gogh Museum’s mission is to inspire present and future generations by making it more accessible,” says Diana De Jesus, licensing manager, IMG. “We are really excited to see the launch of this collaboration with Anthea Crawford, which perfectly captures the iconic beauty and legacy of van Gogh’s exceptional prints.”
The Anthea Crawford line will be available via the official website and across David Jones and Myer department stores in Australia, with a portion of the proceeds of each sale supporting the work of the Van Gogh Museum.
