Print designer Kangan Arora has launched two new cushion collections this season – one is a brightly coloured range called ‘Fluorescent Forest’, the other a pastel-hued set for Urban Outfitters. The screen-printed patterns and colours on the ‘Fluorescent Forest’ cushions are inspired by the differences between India, where Arora grew up, and England, where she is based now. ‘I’ve always been intrigued by the contrast and duality between the hazy, golden Indian summers of my youth and the darker, deeper intensity of autumn and the changing seasons in England,’ she says. The Urban Outfitters collection is striking in a different way – thickset black shapes create kaleidoscopic effects on pale blue and pink backgrounds. Scroll through the gallery to see the new collections (kanganarora.com).
