Toogood X Once Milano
HORSE, MOON, HILL – 10 Quilts
The myth of the white horse - written into the very bedrock of England, and with parallels in other lands and other cultures - is at the heart of Toogood’s collaboration with the Italian linen lifestyle brand, Once Milano. Inspired by the graphic qualities of the pagan hill carvings at Westbury and Uffingham, Toogood has designed a collection of ten limited-edition appliqued quilts, in which graphic elements cut from Italian linen are given free rein to explore various equine legends in an abstracted, painterly manner. An earthy palette of rich browns, grassy greens and chalky whites alludes to the collection’s roots in the English landscape, while the stories depicted encompass not just paganism but also the white horse’s role in the Christian, Hindu and Persian traditions.
