With London fashion week recently in the spotlight, we looked to the catwalk for some design inspiration.
Bold clashes of pattern and colour adorned models in irregular shapes, reminiscent of 70s mod. Looks were anchored with basenotes of blacks and architectural-like accessories. Structured statement pieces were softened with hints of ruffle and accessories became an extension of what was printed on the fabrics.
So, how do we translate these trends to interiors?
When we saw Celine SS14 come down the runway, we were reminded of Kelly Wearstler’s Channels print. They both have the same fluid, brush-like quality – with her design available in both wallpaper and fabric.
Valentino and Elie Saab were on another level with heavily embellished and embroided patterns that mesmerised on-lookers. Their patterns and intricacy are very much like Alhambra’s ‘Rustic Pop’ collection which features gorgoeus, textured fabrics that have been teamed with lighter, linen sheers. This collection from Elliott Clarke is available now to view at Mansours. www.elliottclarke.com.au
