Throughout the month of October 2020, fashion designer Gabriela Hearst presented an exclusive capsule collection in an installation in the iconic 2nd floor Atrium of Selfridges, London, as part of their ongoing sustainability initiative, Project Earth. For the collection, named 'Retro Fit', existing garments made with impeccable construction and uncompromising noble materials were modified with artisanal details to create new and beautifully adapted pieces.
Gabriela Hearst selected De La Espada furniture to furnish the space due to shared values of longevity, craft, premium materials, and sensitivity for the environment. All of the furniture was ex-display to limit waste, eliminating the need to make new pieces for the exhibition.
De La Espada products on display included Solo Vitrine, Commune Stool, and Solo Daybed by Neri&Hu; and Colombo Dining Armchair, Manta Dining Chair, Armstrong Coffee Table, and Hepburn Modular Sofa by Matthew Hilton.
