“Happiness” may not be a word associated with those who rarely see the outside world, but in the case of Trine Lindegaard, the two converge for a collection that brings together needlework from U.K. prisoners and the traditional textile crafts of West Africa. For Fall/Winter 2013, the Danish-born designer drew inspiration from a painting by the prisoner Ziga, who was asked to create on the subject of happiness — an image both surreal and naive, and amazingly imaginative for one under lock and key. The embroidery featured in Lindegaard’s new lookbook was produced within UK-based prisons in collaboration with Fine Cell Work — a social enterprise that trains prisoners in paid, skilled and creative needlework — the result being a look-good, feel-good collection from a young designer to watch.
