Holland & Holland Have Collaborated With Artist Hugo Guinness On A Special Collection
We’re big animal lovers here at Ten HQ. Cute, fluffy ones, obv. Phoebe is already exhibiting premature signs of mad cat lady, she’s not shouting at lamp posts yet (but…), Joel is a proud owner of two miniature schnauzers and other members of Ten Towers are happy settling for a cuddly bear of the large, hairy male type. Delighted, then, to introduce the marvellous menagerie that is Holland & Holland’s new collaboration with uber talented artist and illustrator Hugo Guinness. For those who enjoy a Wes Anderson flick, you will recognise him (well, his voice anyway) from Wes’ Fantastic Mr. Fox where he was Farmer Bunce, Guinness also lending his non-verbal writing talents to the script for The Grand Budapest Hotel.
For this latest collab, he has waved his magical brush once more, six times in fact, this time with a t-shirt as his canvas to produce six illustrations for the house and there’s something for everybody – budding entomologists (the dragonfly), those who might enjoy something more spikey (the hedgehog) or, for those of you who, like us, identify more with things fat, slimy and traditionally considered quite ugly: the toad. You’ll have to move quick though, this is a limited edition range which will be available for purchase as of 5th June, via Holland & Holland’s website or their Bruton Street store. And, if you’re in need of an appetite whetting preview, check the out the video above…
