Stripes That Are Stars

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.

Marie Christophe’s bejeweled birdies take us on flights of fantasy without so much as flapping a wing or turning a feather. Now that’s really something to tweet about!

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.

It’s summer every season of the year with Marie Christophe’s wandering wall flower.

Made of natural wood, ebonized wood and brass, this 43-inch beauty will never wilt.

JEAN LOUIS DENIOT PARIS goes abstract with the St. Remy lamp, an exclusive creation by Marie Christophe.  Its patterned fabric shade is a foil for the base’s sinuous lines, which are highlighted by ceramic beads.

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!

It’s Fashion Week, and everyone and his dog are begging for invitations, which is why Marie Christophe wired this puppy and purse.  Let’s hope they get a front-row seat.

A Beautiful View

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.
