Karen Mabon & Agatha Christie: A Fashion Collaboration

Thumbnail Karen Mabon Design

We are delighted to share images of our first fashion collaboration with designer Karen Mabon.

Karen Mabon is a Scottish designer and illustrator based in London, who creates luxury illustrative accessories, fashion, and homeware, and we simply love her work.

Her collection beautifully captures the vivid imagination of Agatha Christie. Karen has created two exclusive prints which are bold, beautiful and very stylish. Firstly, the ‘Queen of Crime’ which features fantasy book jackets of some of Christie’s best loved novels.

The second, the ‘Murder Mystery’ print, was inspired by more detailed iconography from Christie’s dark narratives.

The ‘Queen of Crime’ print is available on luxurious silk pyjamas, and both are available as collectable silk scarves, manufactured in Italy and packaged in a limited-edition keepsake box.

Whilst on the surface the pieces epitomise the effortless glamour of Christie’s world, on closer inspection, things might not be quite what they seem.

We are delighted to share two smaller, more affordable versions of these Karen Mabon scarves too. The Queen of Crime scarf is available in fuchsia, the Murder Mystery scarf is in neptune green. Both of these are available exclusively at Anthropologie.
