Transfixed by the world of textiles and design, Aimée Wilder launched her namesake wallpaper brand at New York’s ICFF in 2009 after her first fashion licensing contract with Vans in 2008. In recent years, her brand has expanded its line to include home textiles and handmade rugs, as well as accessories such as pillows and poufs. Wilder’s newest collection, Neptunian, displays the depths in which her work has grown, in addition to the bold patterns and playful aesthetics that she is commonly known for.

With a nod towards the Roman sea god, this new line of wallpaper and fabric is an exploration of underwater life. Like the unpredictable nature of the sea, Neptunian represents the ever-changing landscape of water in its movement and life; the stunning patterns and motifs in the designs emerge from Wilder’s own scuba diving and snorkeling experiences, and create allure with their flowing watercolors and ambiguous forms. Comparable to the depths of the seas from which the creatures that inspired the patterns hail, the backgrounds have a swirling beauty that underscores the mysteries of the deep. Read on to see how it breaks down.
