Wrap Star

Paper by Neisha Crosland

Neisha Crosland has designed prints and patterns for the likes of Calvin Klein and Christian Lacroix, so it came as no surprise when her own wallpaper and fabric line started appearing in some very fashionable places—the rooms in London's Berkeley hotel, the windows of Barneys New York, the apartments of Sophie Dahl and Bridget Jones. Crosland, who now sells the collection out of her two chic London shops, recently made her mark on wrapping paper (included are signature designs Birdtree, a red, white, and brown floral; the black-and-ivory Beaded Stripe; and the purple-and-cream Watermark). "I had resorted," says Crosland, "to wrapping all presents in my wallpaper. I think there's nothing more exciting than receiving a truly beautifully wrapped gift." Depending, of course, on what's inside.
