Day 2: An Inspiration for the Season
March 6, 2013
Today, we’ve got the Osborne and Little Spring Collection including Osborne and Little and Lorca.
“Osborne & Little is one of the worlds leading names in fabric and wallpaper design. Cherishing its reputation for innovation and quality, it has grown into one of the great British brands, globally renowned and respected.”
This season, O&L takes us to the ancient Persia and Greece! For the Persian Garden Collection, “the glamour and mystery of ancient Persia is evoked in these designs of embroidered linens, printed cottons, woven silks and companion wallpapers.”
Case and point! Doesn’t this make you want to pick up your passport and go?
Next, moving on to the Lorca Collection. “The Parisian studio, Lorca, is renowned for its elegant and luxurious aesthetic, and ravishing color palette…Many designs of Lorca draw inspiration from nature and the rich heritage of textiles to be found in Asia and the Far East.” This season, however, the inspiration is drawn from this side of the world: Louisiane (the French spelling of Louisiana) and Amerindia (the indigenous peoples of the Americas).
Named after the indigenous peoples of the Americas this collection of woven fabrics is inspired by the artistry of Native American tribes. The colours included in the palette are terracotta, stone, saffron, burnt orange, black, cassis, airforce blue, ivory and sage.
Louisiane is a collection of printed cottons and woven fabrics named after “the former French colony in North America named in honour of Louis XIV. The elegant patterns are coloured in LORCA’s light and airy palette to create a feeling of informality; colours include fuchsia, sky-blue, burnt orange, lavender and lime.”
