A dynamic meeting of fashion and art, the new Chris&Tibor and Stuart Semple Accessory Line – featuring pink leather and black clutch bags with screen-printed Perspex, slouchy silk satin shoppers and vibrant necklaces and key rings – is as vivacious as it is collectable.

Inspired by the line ‘love will tear us apart’ from the Joy Division song, the collection palette and font style is distinctively Semple, while the fine Italian leather and hand-finished trimmings convey couture fashion.

Chris Liu and Tibor Matyas met whilst working as design consultants at Burberry. “As both a close friend and an artist whose work we admire, creating work with Stuart was a natural progression.”

“I didn’t approach this collaboration any differently than I would approach making any other piece of my art,” said Semple. “The process and emotion was almost identical. Together I think we found a way to make my art truly accessible and I think that’s really exciting.”
