What was your inspiration for this year's Christmas wreaths?
As always, I look to what the seasons have to offer. I took myself outside and to the British hedgerow as my point of inspiration – British foliage is as splendid as ever right now, with magnificent shades of evergreen and orange brackens and berries. I wanted the wreaths to complement the deep seasonal tones of the Sunspel collection with some pops of bright yellows and oranges. Christmas is a wonderful time to bring the beauty of the outside, inside. The wreaths dressing Sunspel's windows are inspired by the idea of bringing wild shapes and colours together, all informed by the best of the British season.
What flowers were used specifically for this project?
The hearts of the wreaths are made from British-grown yew and berried ivy. Yew is one of my favourite evergreens because of its scent, beautiful structure and its ancient roots in the British landscape. The yew and ivy are laced together with orange brackens, budded viburnum, rosemary, bay leaf and Douglas firs creating big, wild-looking wreaths. British foliage is in abundance, smells glorious and holds its shape.
