SURF AND STYLE: British artist and designer Zakee Shariff wears her art on her sleeve. Last week, Shariff launched a line for Roxy Heart, the lifestyle range from surf brand Roxy, all adorned with her nature-inspired prints. “The collection represents my love of nature and doing right in the world,” said Shariff of the line, which features T-shirts embroidered with hand-drawn eagles, mountains and seascapes. In a palette of red, yellow, electric blue and fuchsia, the collection also includes Forties-inspired dresses, leather jackets and chunky woolen cardigans. The Roxy Heart line is sold exclusively in Europe, and prices run from 40 pounds, or $65, for a T-shirt, to £290, or $473, for a red leather jacket. Each season the label teams with a different artist to design the collection. This season, the collection will be sold at The Shop at Bluebird in London, Colette in Paris and Gloss in Switzerland. And to mark the collection’s launch, Beyond the Valley, an independent boutique nearby to London’s Carnaby Street, is hosting a Roxy Heart pop-up store for a month.
