We partner with the world’s best fashion houses, lifestyle brands, and independent stationers—but not all of our favorite contemporary designers fit those molds. Whether it’s an emerging artist with a cult following or a visual pioneer whose work is niche in nature, there are people at the cutting edge of the creative community whom we’ve long dreamed of collaborating with. With our new Spotlight series, we’re inviting specialty designers whose work we love and admire to create highly curated collections that embody their signature aesthetics.
Since 2010, contemporary textile designer Ellen Van Dusen has been putting her vibrant, geometric patterns on roomy dresses, playful rompers, and pillow-poufs. Her graphic prints—studies in color and movement that explore the brain’s reaction to design—have been seen on the likes of Lena Dunham in Girls, Carrie Brownstein, and SNL’s Aidy Bryant.
Now, Van Dusen is bringing her color-blocked patterns to the world of rooftop parties and late-night dancing with Spotlight: Dusen Dusen for Paperless Post. The ten invitations in this capsule collection feature her most popular prints—including “Fruit,” of Season-3-Episode-10 Hannah Horvath fame—as well as never-before-seen patterns “Range” and “Dimension.”
