The month of September is my version of the Super Bowl, thanks to the Fashion Weeks in New York, London, Milan and Paris! And as always, I’m fascinated by how trends in the fashion design world influence the interior design world and vice versa. Here are a few of my favorite fashion week/interiors design trend crossovers...
Long time readers know that Brunello Cucinelli is one of my favorite women’s wear designers, so I love that his Spring 2019 ready-to-wear collection highlighted one of the trends we’ve been seeing the interior design world, which is earthy neutrals and an emphasis on tonal stripes and patterns.
I was interested to see how new principal designer Wes Gordon would redefine the classic Carolina Herrera vibe, and loved his use of floral chintz, long an interior design staple as evidenced by “The Prince of Chintz,” Mario Buatta.
Last, a trend that is red hot on the runway as shown at Oscar de la Renta, and just starting to warm up in the home decor industry, is fringe. The fringe in the home revival is happening both in modern and traditional interiors, so expect to see more of it in the months and years to come!
Now, I’ve got to get back to my personal “Super Bowl” as the Paris runway shows are about to begin! I wonder what trends we’ll spot at favorites like Chanel and Elie Saab? Let me know your favorites in the comments section.
