A glamorous jacquard with a wet-look chintz finish, Brancusi has fluid swirls like a marbled paint effect. An homage to the French-Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi whose beguiling sculptures evoke rather than resemble their subjects, the textile is organic yet sleek. Hues range from cerulean blue, rose pink and twilight blue, to the neutrals, steel grey, warm taupe, ivory and pearl white. Fashion-inspired combinations of midnight rust and lemon sky play with the optical effects of mixing colours.
A playful sheer with a subtle sparkle from lurex bouclé yarn, Corallium is like a creature of the sea, its organic scribble pattern appearing to dance and flicker on the floaty sheer organza base. A double thread embroidery technique combines the textured bouclé yarn with lurex to create a lively tactile surface. Tonally matching the base and the bouclé restrains the brightness of icy blue, pistachio green and buttermilk. With light shining through the colours are further saturated. Salt and pepper produces a graphic effect, snow white is crisp and midnight blue moody.
A semi-sheer with a crinkly surface reminiscent of a crepe, Fantome, is ethereal with the hint of a stripe and a powdery palette. Two types of alternating twisted polyester yarns are combined in the warp and weft to create subtle irregularities and imperfect lines. Colours are largely single tones, grey mist, pale yellow, marshmallow pink, snow white and sky blue through to the stronger hues, golden yellow, midnight blue and port red. For added dynamism, two are double dyed creating distinctive stripes of dark burgundy on brick red and charcoal on concrete grey.
A reimagined classic stripe in a silky looking jacquard, Graphis blurs the distinctions between graphic and soft textural lines. Referencing the refinement of a Venetian villa and the billowing materiality of installations by the contemporary artist Ulla von Brandenburg, the fabric is enlivened by alternating matt and shiny surfaces. With light shining through the stripe effect is amplified. The palette picks up hues used elsewhere in the collection, golden yellow, icy grey, rust red, lemon grass, anthracite, pearl white and snow white, with turquoise for a burst of energy. It can be used horizontally or vertically.
A rich jacquard weave that looks embroidered, Mirari brings to mind Japanese forests, otherworldly and dreamy with Kimono-influenced colour settings. A sateen weave in the base gives it a subtle shine, while the textured outline adds depth and evokes the brocades of high fashion. An elegant voluminous drape, the fabric has a tightly edited palette of juxtaposed compositions of rose camel, lemon grass lavender and rose blue, a shimmery silver blue and buttermilk, and the earthy resonance of golden brown.
Featuring a figurative artwork with a dramatic 3-metre repeat, Murale is a woven jacquard inspired by historic frescoes and murals while playing with scale and abstraction. Reminiscent of the artworks of Jean Cocteau, the chalk lines of the pattern warrant close attention, reading as abstracted when the curtain is folded and figurative when opened out. The slubbed poly-cotton weft yarn floats along the lines of the image giving an embossed character to the broken satin base. The finish gives it a rich sheen and effortless drape. Four of the colours, sage green, silver grey, light camel and burgundy have chalk lines in white, rust brown is complemented by light yellow and indigo by mid-blue.
A moody sheer with an abstracted floral pattern, Puya plays with shadows and forms in nature. The dissolved pattern and visual imagery is inspired by the work of Dutch artist Viviane Sassen, renowned for photographs that disrupt perceptions of what is real or imagined. Created using the fil coupe shearing technique, the textile has a slightly slubbed base and textural character from the different yarns. When exposed to the light it throws its own dramatic shadow. Sakura pink, sun yellow, silver grey and golden beige reference a Japanese-influenced colour palette while black brings drama and pearl white clarity.
