PLUS is the first of a planned series of collaborations between Margaret Howell and designers from other fields whose work she admires. In this case the designer is Kenneth Grange.
Kenneth Grange has a long and distinguished career in industrial design. A founding partner of Pentagram, the international design agency, his name is synonymous with iconic British design: the Intercity 125 train, the 1997 TX1 London taxi, Kenwood food mixer, Parker pens and the re-issue of the Anglepoise lamp. Like Margaret Howell, he was awarded a Royal Designer for Industry (RDI) by the Royal Society of Arts.
Together they have produced a unique shirt – collarless, with generous fit and minimal styling, a button fly front and a unique pocket designed specifically for pens – which combines Kenneth Grange’s practical design experience with the premium quality and make associated with Margaret Howell.
