These four collections, have been divided into Vivido, Urban, Whitworth and Northwood. For design that encapsulates the simplicity and striking form of abstract shapes, Vivido is a collection of fabrics and wallpapers that takes its cue from architecture and is softened by a considered, muted palette.

New to the fabric house, sartorial stripes bring a timelessness to interiors in a velvet that is fit for purpose in contract and domestic applications. Tailored stripes in a selection of widths take this linear look to the next level.

For a take on a modern geometric, Urban is inspired by Cubism, with its abstract take on shape, but delivers an artistic, cohesive collection of fabric designs in a rich palette.

Northwood completes the AW23 collection. Studio G’s collection of 100 per cent cotton fabrics bring an eternally English feel to the portfolio, with a colour palette inspired by the seasons and a beautiful blend of prints that take their inspiration from nature, whether in the luscious forest landscapes or the delicate florals of a meadow.

Inspired by the trend for simple, abstract shapes, Vivido is a luxurious collection of nine wallcoverings and a mix of seven fabrics, including tactile weaves, embroideries and prints. Layering techniques add depth to architecturally inspired designs, which are softened by a relaxed, tonal palette. Contemporary colourways such as Midnight and Spice add a touch of contrast to this easy-to-use range, which is punctuated by subtle metallic highlights.

Taking its cue from the abstract aesthetics of Cubism, Urban transforms landscapes and objects into geometric artforms. Incorporating a range of statement designs on soft, cut velvet and one tactile weave, this expressive collection of stripes, circles and chevrons spans a rich colour palette in six fabric designs.

“For AW23 we have created a versatile range of collections that tailor to any market, from luxurious bold velvets, rustic textured linens and crisp cottons, there is something for everyone,” said Jessica Butler, Senior Designer Clarke & Clarke. “Creating these designs has been a journey, with inspiration from our Manchester studio, its amazing architecture, artistic movements and the rolling hills of the North all playing a part. Experimenting with tonal colour palettes and natural elements has brought our in-house artwork to life. It’s always our aim to combine new and exciting colours with timeless designs that will suit any interior and this launch really encapsulates that vision.”
