Belinda Carlisle for the Cross

 + 09 December 2011

The Cross girls jump at the chance for a good dance, so imagine our toe-tapping delight when we heard that we are going to be working with Belinda Carlisle!

Having fronted glittering girl band The Go Go's, Belinda later enjoyed great success as a solo artist, secured in our hearts with the legendary  Heaven is a place on Earth.

Originally from LA, Belinda and her husband of 26 years Morgan Mason now split their time between France and India, giving Belinda the chance to follow new passions outside of music.

"With both of our professions, we can live anywhere, so we thought, why not live our dream? I’ve been to India a few times, and I love it so much that I got a little place there too. I do a lot of yoga and have a little business there.”

We're delighted to be working with Belinda in her business ‘Belindia’ - introducing  a new and exciting line of fine Indian textiles.

 

 

Whether you're lucky enough to have been or you can only dream of day-long trawls through markets, Indian charm and treasures hold unique allure.

 

 

Vibrant colour contrast, bold prints and wonderful weaves, Belinda Carlisle's range of  blankets is not just beautiful but as well serves a good cause. All products are hand stitched at Shuktara Project which helps disadvantaged children in India. (www.shuktara.net/aboutus.html) The same project group which helps Christina Kim at Dosa to produce her beautiful collections each season.

 

We just can’t wait for the launch of the Belindia line in conjunction with Bergdorf Goodman in New York this Spring and the exclusive colourways which will be created especially for us at the Cross.

 

Next year is going to be bright and colourful!
