Urban Outfitters have launched a collection using functional art by legendary artist Alexander Girard

A legendary 20th century artist and master of modern design, Alexander Girard – colorist, pattern maker, environmental and exhibition extraordinaire – adorned approachable, useful and functional media with his iconic patterns, bold colors and stylized charm. With folk art as his inspiration, Girard’s playful and expressive designs allowed him to head Herman Miller’s Textile Division and embark on high-profile independent projects. Staying true to Girard’s approach to functional art, Urban Outfitters have taken his designs and applied it on pillows cases, wall art, bed sheets and more.

Featured here are Girard’s 1972 original designs made for Herman Miller:
- Love Heart
- Paper Dolls
- Bouquet
- Moon
