With Fashion Week in full swing, it’s easy to find inspiration for your wardrobe â€“ walking both the runway and the streets. With spring still two seasons away, we thought we’d take inspiration a little closer to the here and now. We’ve gathered design ideas and references from the best fall collections shown at NYFW to help you curate your home right now.
Pristine White Looks
Simple yet spellbinding, all-white ensembles made a powerful statement at the Carolina Herrera runway presentation. The purity of a head-to-toe look in optic white brought attention to the designer’s elegant use of proportion. For the home, opt for décor with a similar focus on form, like these custom-made Neoclassical-Style Columns.
The audience at the Philosophy runway show was met with the opposite side of the color spectrum, courtesy of high-shine black styles reminiscent of 1980s power suiting. When it comes to one’s closet, all-black ensembles have a reputation for looking effortless, while head-to-toe white can seem like a tall order to pull off â€“ however the inverse is often said of interiors, with inexperienced designers generally shying away from incorporating pure black. Have no fear of the dark â€“ as we’ve seen at NYFW, a well-chosen black statement piece can instantly transform the look and feel of a room, giving it a bit of edge and sensuality.
These Calvin Leather And Hide Bar Stools by Arteriors offer just the jolt of energy needed for a drinks and entertainment area.
Soft, Natural Textures
Woolly shearling and faux fur took center stage at Alexander McQueen, giving an unexpected and much-needed softness to sleek monochromatic ensembles. Find your own balance between clean, modernist design and the comfort you crave with these Flat Bar Steel and Faux Fur Stools by Harvey Probber.
At runway presentations for Etro, Isabel Marant, and Missoni, craft made a bold comeback in the form of chunky knits, patchwork, and colorful wovens with a homespun feel. Invite this free-spirited sensibility into your interiors with high-quality, museum-worthy textiles crafted by hand. This Moroccan Berber Rug with colorful chevrons is a perfect choice for the bedroom or study.
The choice is clear â€“ transparent plastic boots and iridescent, oversized paillettes ruled the runway at Balmain, proving that the plastic trend is one with staying power. And for good reason â€“ with chameleon-like versatility, clear plastic lends an ultra-modern appeal to whatever it’s paired with, causing us to take a fresh look at our surroundings. This Clear Acrylic Shelf has just enough style to elevate a room, without distracting from the beauty that surrounds it. Combine with any of the above trends for a perfect integration of styles.
