Inspired by the cutting-edge couture collections to grace the catwalks during New York Fashion Week, we show you how to incorporate next season’s international runway looks into your home decor.
Rich Jewel Hues
A vivid palette of bold jewel colours brightened many of New York’s star-studded fashion events. Brilliant ruby, sapphire, emerald, teal, neon pink, orange and olive green are forecasted as the hues to dominate next season.
Create your own interpretation of this powerful look with a measured selection of chic pieces in striking jewel tones.
Sequins and Sparkle
The Fall 2013 Collections of designers Jenny Packham (above) and Naeem Khan, focused on dazzling decadence in the form of intricate beading, crystals and sequins adorning exquisitely appliqued and embroidered gowns.
Loving this trend? From sequined homewares and crystal-adorned lighting to studded furniture – bring the bling to any room in your home for a dazzling dose of drama.
Move over colour blocking! Many of this year’s Fashion Week collections saw designers throw caution to the wind and combine prints and fabrics for an eclectic, fearless look. Opulent brocades, plaid (tartan), florals and geometric prints all jostled for their rightful place in the spotlight.
Translate this daring trend into your home’s interior with a few key pieces such as accent chairs and cushions. Unleash your inner creative and take a liberal approach when mixing up textures, tones and patterns.
Luxurious and diverse, leather was one of the top runway trends in both women and menswear. Designers went for broke, with unique leather looks in biker jackets, gloves, peplum tops, skirts, suits – you name it!
Raise the style stakes in your home by investing in the quality, elegance and rich beauty of cowhide leather.
