Bronze Purse Mirror x Mickalene Thomas
As a distinguished visual artist, filmmaker and curator it's no surprise that Mickalene Thomas has now also collaborated on a new range of homewares and accessories, featuring some of her most striking artworks. Two double sided linen cushion designs lead the range sitting plush alongside a set of linen placemats, an embellished tech case and a brushed bronze purse mirror. Playing to the artists complex notions of femininity that often challenge common definitions of beauty, the range aims to mirror Mickalene's embellishment technique via texture and design.
