Alexandra Mann for Roost Living

An inspirational ‘maker’, Alexandra Mann has forged quite the fabric-focused career; she cut her teeth in cloth assisting the Head of Couture at Vivienne Westwood, before moving into full time costume design.

Over the years, her work and inspiration-seeking travels have led her to uncover wildly beautiful prints and fabrics, so it’s no coincidence that these feature pride of place in her eponymous new collection of cushions and travel accessories.

Brave emblems of grenades and razor blades are appliquéd atop Alexandra’s pieces; quite the contrast to the reclaimed Sanderson cottons beneath them. 

It’s this juxtaposition of old and new that initially drew us to Alexandra's work and to commission her to make a few exclusive-to-Roost Living styles. We hope you love them as much as we do!
