We do love Shrimps here at The Print Affair and have featured them before for their Dolly Parton collection. Always fun and fabulous we had to share their new collection and collaboration with you.
Following their sell-out debut collection, Shrimps for Habitat is back with a second collection. Inspired by 1970’s Palm Springs, get excited for handwoven rattan and an uplifting colour palette of sunshine yellow, vanilla cream and sage green with touches of soft pink and sky blue. We’ve taken the collection one step further this time, extending the world of Shrimps beyond textiles and into furniture and lighting pieces. New hand drawn, painted patterns and artworks have been created especially, with some familiar Shrimps characters thrown in for good measure.
The Wilder Rug & Cushion
Our Doodle clutch bag was the inspiration behind the sell-out cushion from our first collection and we have revisited the idea with some new characters from the Shrimps family that fans might recognise. I find the sage green a very calming, chic colour, creating a sense of elegance alongside a more playful illustrative quality.

Checkerboard squares also appear on the Gene Rug and Cushion, both made with a wonderfully tactile, shaggy texture. For Hannah the shade of yellow used conjures images of 1970s California, adding a joyful and sunny disposition to any room.
The whole collection is available to buy now on Habitat’s website or in their London flagship store on Tottenham Court Road.
To find the clothing, bags and accessories featured in the shoot, shop Pre-Fall and Autumn/Winter ’20 here.
