2020 Bell Hutley X Alexandra Tolstoy Russian Folkore Collaboration 

Autumn / Winter 2020 Tableware Collection. A capsule tabletop collection which draws on Bell’s love of ‘dark beauty’ and Alexandra’s love of adventure and her Anglo-Russian heritage. When researching for this collection I wanted to create the feelings that I felt as a young girl when reading romantic, dark, gothic children’s books. I wanted to combine my love for these Brothers Grimm's like Slavic folklore stories with Alexandra's love for Russian culture, history and art. The inanimate relationship between Folklore and Paganism means that the stories created were filled with mythical places and characters; fairies and fairylands, cunning women and evil witches, castles and kingdoms Characters like Baba Yaya who was one of the most famous Slavic Pagan goddesses of regeneration, living in the forest which was a symbol for the crossing between life and death, and represented a sort of Mother Earth-figure. The relationship these stories and myths had with nature is key in nearly every tale. Pagan culture was known to worship and celebrate the changing of the seasons, and all the different parts of nature in the land. So for the collection I wanted to take elements from the fashion of the time, girls' frills, bows and ribbons with trimmings as well as the dark and gothic castles and combine the patterns into nature. With a big influence from Susan Meller and her collection of traditional Russian textiles and printed cloth as well as looking at Russian illustrators like Ivan Bilibin I created a collection of illustrations inspired by nature.

The collection achieved commercial success and global sales, PR in UK magazines and supplements, and the Museum of Russian Art in America placed a over 10k order. I designed placemats, coasters, hand painted toadstools, vases, napkins, table cloth, tumblers and one off embroidered table linens with Russian Volga linen. The launch gifted the likes of Cabana magazine editor Gianluca Longo.
