Adam & Viktoria show their stripes with Halcyon, a pretty pattern that suggests water or palm leaves. It comes in two colorways – brown sepia on natural linen and blue on natural linen. Don’t feel you have to choose; take them both.
Bonita Ahuja’s dreamy delicate curtain fabrics just beg to be touched because they literally show her hand. The Dior Suite of the St. Regis Hotel in New York who selected her textiles gets it’s serenely chic look in large part from Bonita Ahuja’s delicate textiles.
Her new panels: Band Desert, taupe and black silk and cashmere, features Chinese blue and champagne borders.
Block Printemps, taupe mixed with almond with multicolored squares, is made of silk and cashmere.
New Kyoto, a 21-inch-square silk and velvet pillow by Adam & Vitkoria, looks like a Japanese kimono afloat on a shiny stream shaded by cherry trees. It comes in bitter chocolate on grey/brown silk, verona green on grey-green silk and blue plum on intense dark blue silk and features embroidery appliquéd with metallic threads.
You’ll want them all!
I was looking through my files and fell in love with Marie Christophe’s life-size sculptures for the Musee de la Mode all over again. She made them in 1998 — can it really have been that long ago? The peacock strutted for Chanel; the giraffe loped for Issey Miyake; the swan swanned for Jean-Paul Gaultier; the hare hopped for Yohji Yamamoto; the ostrich sashayed for Christian Lacroix; and the rooster crowed only for Comme des Garcon. Magnifique!
Inspired by architectural motifs and inlays, Bonita Ahuja of India has created a new collection of curtains called “Etchings”.
The textured-silk panels, come in two patterns – Balance and Block – and are drawn in four colorways – berry, ivory, charcoal and ink. I like to mix and match them to the max.
