Hollywood royalty worships American neo-Expressionist Hunt Slonem. Kate Hudson has his whimsical artwork mounted on her walls; so does Jennifer Lopez, Mandy Moore, Sharon Stone, Brooke Shields and Julianne Moore. But if the average Jane wanted to get her hands on a prized piece of work by Slonem, she’d have to fork over a substantial amount of cash. (One glance at 1st Dibs priced Slonem’s paintings as high as $45,000 while most were labeled “price upon request.”)
Luckily, the world-renowned artist is offering up his iconic bunnies, birds and butterflies on a different medium for a fraction of the cost. Slonem has partnered with fashion and accessories brand Echo Design on a limited-edition capsule collection. The vibrant lineup includes six unique scarf designs and one signature tote bag, which is available in three color-ways: black and white, orange and fuchsia and turquoise and blue.
“Echo Design and I are new friends,” said Hunt Slonem in an official statement. “I have never worked in this capacity before and I am absolutely thrilled with the tote bags and scarves. I am very, very happy with the results and I am looking forward to our future working together.”
The Hunt Slonem x Echo Design collection is priced between $48 an $148 and will be available for purchase at Bloomingdale’s on 59th Street and on Bloomingdales.com through the month of December. (Right now, you can place an order on four of the scarves at Echo Design.) The collection will roll out to additional branches and specialty stores for Spring 2015.
