BEAUTY OF FLIGHT Beautiful feather repeats, and abstract feathers combine within Beauty of Flight, as we see the moody and solemn side to the animal print story. The colors are decidedly dark and flocks of birds in a foggy sky particularly inspire. Perhaps these are the birds from The Moors in Wuthering Heights.
CANYON Canyon is a derivative of the ‘Burn’ graphics story, as we look at firey landscapes and textural curves formed in the Arizonian desert. The iconic range of colors of a flame is of course vital, and thick liquid paint mimic lethal lava.
CHEMICAL REACTION Mother Nature continues to inspire with faux textures, as this season we are seeing a chemical reaction; whether it be via burning, erosion or bubbling and explosions from the reaction. This is a great modernization of the dye effect and intarsia knit designs adds further texture.
COSMIC The planets and galaxy are explored for the home market, which make for great atmospheric designs and spherical shaping’s. There is a painterly quality to many of the designs as perhaps we can’t understand all of the scientific discoveries out there, but can definitely appreciate it’s beauty.
CRAFTED EARTH Crafted Earth is another derivative of Discover, as we see the lines of the land and the solid bark structures inspire with great texture and depth. Old curved tree stumps particularly inspire, as we appreciate their personality and freedom of movement as they claim their space on this earth. The color palette is decidedly neutral.
ENVELOP Knitted repeat patterns, blanket stripes, flannel plaids and heavy intarsia’s all combine as a graphic inspiration we imagine being wrapped up in these textural knits.
FIESTA This graphic story brings great color to the season, as we are inspired by Mexican tapestries, powerful sunsets, and city photoreals, as we try to immerse ourselves into that spicy, exciting life. There is also a folkloric sensibility to this trend.
FRAGILITY See through and fragile imagery such as butterfly wings, flowers, and bubbles are key, as we appreciate their delicate frame. Steam and condensation via photoreals adds a modern twist to this trend, as we are simply appreciating the sheer and fragile layering.
HIDDEN SHADOWS As the night draws to a close we stop and appreciating the growing shadows, which for home creates a new geometric story.
MIDNIGHT GARDEN There is a hidden romance as we walk through a mystical and dark garden. Florals and fauna are subsequently relevant and there is a haunted sensibility, which is represented through painterly petals as well as grayscale photoreals.
