When Fashion & Interiors Collide
With the recent news that Karl Lagerfeld has signed up to create the interiors for a 20-storey, 270-room hotel in Macau. I am reminded again about the close relationship between fashion and interiors. Anna Wintour, editor of US Vogue, once wrote that she has "long believed that the eye runs naturally from the catwalk to the kitchen."
It is not a new concept and with many well known fashion designers now selling a wide selection of homeware products the market is just getting bigger and bigger. But what does that mean for me?
Having recently completed a striking Missoni inspired office for a glamorous client, I thought I would take a look at other fashion designers that have forayed into interiors. Here are a few of my favourite images:
The Rug Company have joined forces once again with Alexander McQueen to bring together a collection that is bohemian and luxurious, with forward fashion led direction.
Cole & Son continue to work with Vivienne Westwood to produce a collection of wallpapers based on signature designs from Vivienne Westwood’s fashion collections such as the iconic Squiggle print from A/W 1981 Pirate collection and the beautiful Cut-Out Lace from S/S 2007 ‘I am Expensive’ collection. This collection reflects Westwood’s inimitable take on traditional British style.
This developing relationship between the worlds of fashion and interiors can only be a good thing for designers and clients alike. I'll be keeping my eyes out for any fresh future collaborations.
