Alice Levine and Laura Jackson each personify the modern vogue for a portfolio career. Alice is not only a Radio 1 DJ, but also a podcaster (My Dad Wrote a Porno) and co-founder of Jackson Levine, along with her friend Laura who amongst other things is a TV presenter, broadcaster and fashion darling. Together they have created a brand for modern women that started with a sell-out supper club and grew into a book, Round to Ours featuring menus and styling tips for hosting the perfect gathering, plus a successful collaboration with Habitat on a range of linens last summer.
Now, the duo have paired up with Habitat for a second time to release a homeware range. The inspiration behind the collection is travels in Puglia, and the collection is being made in collaboration with the Fasano family whose small workshop in Grottagli offers traditional craftsmanship.
However there are numerous current trends at play; colour themes like red and pink, and lilac and yellow, there’s stripes, splatters and Luke Edward Hall-esque figurative line drawings. The result is a completely up-to-date take on classic ceramics. There’s crockery, serving bowls, jugs, utensil jars and pinch pots and we’d like it all please.
Available in Habitat stores from early June, and online from 31 May 2018.
