Fashion Houses with luxury homeware

ashion has always been intrinsically linked with Interior Design, expressing ourselves through the way we dress and the way we dress our home. This month we will be exploring this link and looking at how we have used fashion to influence our work.
We are starting the series by looking at Fashion Houses who have branched into Interiors themselves and how their fashion on the runway translates to the home.
With one of the most iconic prints in fashion, Missoni’s signature zigzag print has not only graced the catwalks but has also found prominence in luxury homeware since 1983. Their latest collaboration with luxury resort, One&Only Reethi Rah in the Maldives, saw the Italian fashion house transform their beach club with printed parasols, towels, loungers and cabanas.
Famed for their range of exquisite cushions, Christian Lacroix’s home collection features their iconic designs printed and embroidered onto decorative fabrics, as well as wallpapers and accessories. With their mysteriously imaginative sceneries and kaleidoscope inspired floral patterns, their prints add an element of quirky luxury.
Hermes describe their home range as ‘Functional and vital, Hermès objects permeate the space. They bring well-being and beauty and make sense to our senses’. From Expertly crafted pieces of furniture to equestrian inspired tableware. Known in the fashion world for their signature scarves, their range of cashmere throws are the interior equivalent and a must have from the collection.
Donatella once said that ‘the furniture of fashion houses should be recognisable’ and Versace’s homeware range does just that. In 1992, the collection started with textiles, followed by porcelain tableware. Today the brands collection recreates their bold Baroque and Renaissance inspired prints across towels, wallpaper and even co-ordinating slippers and robes so that brand enthusiast can fully embody the Versace brand.
‘Home, for Fendi, is the perfect setting where aesthetics meet emotion. A place – both physical and spiritual – to which you aspire to return.’ With stunningly detailed pieces of furniture, Fendi’s key to their Home line is ‘details’, using weaves, inlays and reliefs to echo the craftsmanship used in their fashion collections.
Alessandro Michele, launched Gucci decor in 2017, describing the line as “an eclectic collection of items with which customers can dress their own spaces”. Today, the line boasts Chiavari chairs, velvet armchairs and decor wallpaper with iconic Gucci motifs.
