First Look: Paris Deco Off


Here is a sampling of what caught my eye and I am loving from Paris Deco Off 2014.

Osborne and Little is betting that trims are going to make a comeback; putting their money on their new Cornish Trim collection shown in this stunning display window reminiscent of Little Mermaid.( It won Best Window!) I am a “more is better” person so my fingers are crossed that passementerie is chic again.

Intricate wool leading edge applique with metallic highlights on Fortuny.


Wool and velvet take it up a notch. Wool in all weights was presented and Velvet became more baroque – certainly in the complex finishes and weaves.

Cassaro fabrics from Houston is always a favorite. Here is a jacquard cut velvet that has been overprinted with a rose pattern. Stunning!


Romo Black Edition was searching for a permanent embossing techniques so they used long nap velvet, embossed I;t then cut the nap to create this permanent moire inspired pattern- and it’s soft as buttah!
