Luxury Australian resort brand, ROBE engaged Penelope to create multiple artworks, exclusive to ROBE, for their Cocktails At Sunset Spring Summer Collection. Once the artworks were created, Penelope designed two textile prints for the brand.
Textile Print #1 – The English Rose
ROBE founder, Bec, requested a floral and feminine print featuring the English rose. The print was to evoke a gentle sense of sophisticated romance, femininity and hope. We kept the colour palette to subdued tones of pinks.
Textile Print #2 – Japanese Cherry Blossom
The second artwork and textile print Penelope created and designed for ROBE was largely based on the Japanese Cherry Blossom tree. Penelope used angular, geometric lines found in the branches of the cherry blossom tree to create a type of “lattice” effect. The rigidity of the lines was balanced with the soft, delicate shapes of the blossoms petals, therefore creating a bold yet soft textile print. In keeping to the art brief, Penelope contrasted the cool blue tones with golden oranges and yellows which reflect the colours of Summer, beachside.
