Untuckit is excited to launch its first designer capsule collection on June 1st, 2022, with world-renowned luxury textile designer John Robshaw. The group debuts the brand’s exploration of partnerships with unique, independent artisans who are experts in their fields of creative work.

Robshaw is known for his vibrant mix of sophisticated and romantic prints in bedding, furniture, and home décor. Originally from Buffalo, New York, he earned a fine arts degree from Pratt Institute before studying printing methods throughout Asia. He traveled in China and India, studying block printing and natural indigo dye traditions. Once immersed in Southeast Asian fabric-making techniques, John never looked back; his signature style emerged: luxury home goods crafted with the sophistication of modern design and the unexpected elegance of the handmade. His home decor line, built around a personal modern interpretation of traditional block printing, is sold around the world. 

Blending cultures and techniques, John has created his own signature look with designs that are new and fresh yet retain their sense of handcrafted tradition. Every season John Robshaw Textiles presents a collection of prints for his bedding line, as well as fabrics, wallpaper, furniture, and loungewear. His work is used by major interior designers and in celebrity homes everywhere. He has been featured in hundreds of home publications from Architectural Digest to The World of Interiors, including two covers on Elle Decor. 

Robshaw continues to travel widely, learning and adapting regional approaches to color and design, and employing local craftspeople from India, Thailand, and the Philippines to perpetuate his handmade aesthetic. 

For this collection, he was inspired by batik prints, mixing UNTUCKit’s classic tailored look with a dash of the bohemian. The capsule will consist of three colors and two prints, reflecting the designer’s signature aesthetic. Lightweight and breathable, the linen and cotton blend shirts are offered in two silhouettes, one with a pocket and one without. Available exclusively on UNTUCKit.com starting June 1, 2022, the UNTUCKit + John Robshaw capsule will sell for $89.00 and will be available in sizes small through XXX-large, as well as in UNTUCKit’s Slim and Regular fits. 

 “At UNTUCKit, we’re always looking to work with independent, creative artists who have an artful take on our offerings,” says founder Chris Riccobono. “John Robshaw has been a longtime friend of the brand, so this collaboration felt very organic. We infused Robshaw’s ornate designs and patterns with our short-sleeve shirts—just in time for summer travel.”

Seeing his prints come to life in apparel, Robshaw said “It’s been fun to see how UNTUCKit approaches my prints. It’s great to see my designs used in fashion versus bedding and home decor.”
