A symbolic relationship and they go hand in hand, fashion and home design. This Fall’s runway fashions are very much in sync with trends happening for the home.
There are many new trends in prints: different looks in animals prints in bright vibrant colors, in teal, acid greens, and true blues; but not forgetting the basic of grey and black, cheetah, leopard, embossed leathers, and many metallic skins.
We will see trends repeat themselves in bold floral prints that pop into both worlds of Fashion and Interior Design. From small to large, designers that walk hand in hand: J. Crew and Brunschwig & Fils in floral prints and geometric. Diane Von Fustenberg brings florals and animal prints, and she brings it home with her Cumulus Sunset pattern, for Kravet fabrics.
Escada, in a retro look in a stunning purple hyacinth print, Osborne & Little shows some dramatic color from Matthew Williamson for Osborne & Little. Kate Spade shows her new look of “cyber” cheetah, with Kelly Wearstler’s strikingly similar print in wall covering.
For a while now, many designers have bridged the fashion world and Interior Design. To name a few: Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang, Charlotte Moss, Nanette Lepore, and Fendi extended their world to opulence in lighting. So step out of the box and move your living space to a high fashion look for 2015.
