As we launch the latest in a series of collaborations with John Booth, we take a moment to speak to the artist about our longstanding partnership and gain some insight into his creative process.

In the Studio with Begg x Co

Inspired by the creative spaces used by artists, musicians, writers and the like, the latest drop of our autumn/winter collection features knitwear and accessories in a palette of earthy tones with pops of ochre. We catch up with two of our talented in-house designers to discover what inspires them when creating for Begg x Co.

Design Stories - John Booth Collaboration

This year, we add two new John Booth Art Blankets to our artist series collection. The “Graffiti Blanket” and the “Collage Blanket”, both inspired by the artist’s sketchbook, provide the canvas for a playful pop of colour and a celebration of line and mark making. We caught up with Begg x Co designer Nicole Watson to discuss the creation of the blankets.
