The Australian womenswear designer, Anthea Crawford, has partnered with the Van Gogh Museum to launch a limited edition autumn/winter 2021 collection to international retail, thanks to a deal brokered by IMG.

Launched on May 14th, the new line features Vincent van Gogh’s iconic artwork, bold colours, and signature styles in a 19-piece collection of dressed, blouses, t-shirts, trousers, coats, and jackets. The range has been developed in celebration of the 45th anniversary of the Anthea Crawford brand.

The range will be available worldwide from, as well as David Jones and Myer department stores across Australia, with prices ranging from AUD $149 to $699. The first 500 customers to purchase through the Anthea Crawford website will also receive a complimentary ‘Sunflowers’ sketch tote bag.

“It’s our 45th year of Australian style and to celebrate we have collaborated with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam,” said an Anthea Crawford spokesperson. “Timeless beauty, expressive colour and irresistible texture plays have always been central to Anthea’s vision. It’s been a great honour to work so intimately with the priceless masterpieces of Vincent van Gogh, which have inspired us for so many years.”

Mark Minkman, managing director (a.i.), Van Gogh Museum, commented: “We are very proud to collaborate with Anthea Crawford and develop these sophisticated garments together, especially in these challenging times. This partnership enables us to inspire people with the art and heritage of Vincent van Gogh combined with the quality and characteristic prints of Anthea Crawford. Every purchase of this Anthea Crawford x Van Gogh Museum collection supports the work of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.”

Diana De Jesus, licensing manager, IMG, added: “Vincent van Gogh’s work has become a mainstay of culture and the Van Gogh Museum’s mission is to inspire present and future generations by making it more accessible. We are really excited to see the launch of this collaboration with Anthea Crawford, which perfectly captures the iconic beauty and legacy of Van Gogh’s exceptional prints.”

A portion of proceeds from each purchase will support the work of the Van Gogh Museum which houses more than 200 Vincent van Gogh paintings, 500 drawings, and 700 written documents.
