In Memory of Lucienne Day

Lucienne and Robin Day, often compared to U.S. contemporaries Charles and Ray Eames, were a British power couple in post-war era design. Sadly, Lucienne passed away on January 30, 2010 at age 93. She is best known for her textile designs which were hugely popular in the 1950s and 60s, but also had partnerships with leading carpet, wallpaper, and ceramics manufacturers such as Rosenthal, Rasch, and Wilton Royal.

Read more about this duo on the London Design Museum website and you can buy Jack Purcell sneakers with Lucienne Day designs right here.
