Tag: fashion influences interiors
The signs that fashion influences interiors are everywhere if you make it a point to pay attention. I do, highlighting when the dual disciplines overlap, which is often.
One of the tried-and-true examples of a designer who moved easily between fashion and interiors is the late Oscar de la Renta, whose furniture line for Century Furniture launched at High Point Market in 2014. In this post, I juxtapose the vignette of his graceful furnishings against his 2013 bridal collection, which has the same feel as the newly released Century classics.
There are so many references to his legacy in the collection—the soft upholstery covering the Venetian sofa reminiscent of one of the first panne velvet gowns I saw when I searched for designs from his; the trellis pattern on the slipper chair, which brings to mind the passion he had for gardening and his beautiful 2013 bridal collection; and the turned wood of his Rope Arm Chair, as classic as the refined furnishings in the gracious Connecticut estate in Kent that he called home when he was alive.
I have a number of posts under this tag so if you’ve enjoyed this snippet, I hope you’ll stop by and read about other instances where fashion influences interiors.
