POWER PRINTS: Husband-and-wife design duo Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto returned to London Fashion Week after four seasons to show their collection at the Aram Gallery in Covent Garden — and clothing is only a part of the story.

Their presentation, “Living With Patterns,” features the duo’s latest prints — which range from pastel cones to tribal zigzags on cotton, silk and viscose shifts and blouses. The colorful show also features a women’s footwear collaboration with Clarks; patterned rugs that have been done exclusively for Aram; bone china for Narumi, and ceramic vases for Moorcroft.

Kishimoto said the collaborations weren’t a big leap for her. “I see clothing as a product you use, rather than as fashion,” she explained, adding that all of her collections start with prints. Eley, meanwhile, confirmed that the label would return to the London catwalk in February.
