Donald’s Day

Artist Donald Robertson is on a collaboration spree.

With a Smashbox Cosmetics lipstick collaboration and two pop-up art galleries under his belt, illustrator Donald Robertson is having quite an October. But, it’s his two projects in November that have the accessories world swooning. First up is a charitable collaboration with shoe designer Brian Atwood—an illustrated book of his Fall 2014 collection to benefit the National MS Society, which will debut on November 8th. The signed, limited-edition run of 200 copies will be available for purchase on along with the original prints. On November 24th, those looking for something to carry can pick up a piece from Robertson’s collaboration with accessories designer Kara Ross. Inspired by the Whole Foods bag, the limited-edition shopper will be available in a range of artful riffs, including a snakeskin version featuring a painted python and a canvas one decorated with his dripping leopard print. Rumor has it Robertson will also deck the windows of her New York boutique to celebrate the launch on November 24th— if he doesn’t paint the whole town first.
