If you’re wearing something printed, chances are the pattern probably came from Print One. The London textile design company, founded by David Eaton and Daniel Bernardi, have built a rich archive over the years housing 25,000 designs.

“David has been working with textiles for 35 years and was renowned for collecting artworks. Over time, he started collecting vintage prints,” explains Daniel of David, who would travel across Europe sourcing from storied mill towns in France, Italy, Hungary and the UK.

Some of the designers Label/Mix is collaborating with this season – Catherine Teatum and Rob Jones of Teatum Jones, Serafina Sama of Isa Arfen and Osman – are renowned for their bold use of prints. Joining the dots, we asked them to spend an afternoon in Print One’s archive selecting their favourite prints, before translating them into designs for Label/Mix.

There’s a resurgence of vintage-look florals this season – this Mix/Teatum Jones pleated shirtdress has the upper hand in that it actually features a hand-drawn floral print from 1930s France – 6th August 1931, to be exact: the screen printer notes it in his sketches, along with other observations, and Teatum Jones have, rather sweetly, left them on the finished piece.

If florals are too ubiquitous, consider this colourful ‘tutti-frutti’ print. “This comes from 50s or 60s Italy, and would have been used for accessories – the linings of handbags, scarves. All-over prints weren’t popular in womenswear in Italy and were only used in small goods,” says Daniel. The vibrant print appears on two Mix/Isa Arfen dresses, chiming with the label’s playful femininity.

“The neatness and uniformity indicates that this ‘chilli’ print is French, from the 40s or 50s.” Originally printed on a white canvas, Osman has opted for an eye-catching red backdrop, with navy and cobalt chillis, in this beautiful silk shirtdress.

Splashy and bold, this Mix/Teatum Jones dress showcases a print from the 60s or 70s. “The way the colours of the florals fall outside of their defined lines would have been a mark of an unskilled craftsman before, but here the effect is deliberate, as artists began to go against convention – a reflection of the decade.”
