Three runway looks face off against their home-design doppelgangers.
How’s this for a conversation piece? Alternating hues of tessellated stone create the dizzying chevron pattern seen in DwellStudio’s black-and-white cocktail table
. The piece evokes the graphic angles in Jill Stuart
’s satin Josephine coatdress.
The watercolor motif of this expertly draped Costello Tagliapietra
dress is grounded in muted colors and spontaneous, splattered-on shapes. The same is true of Kira Appelhans
’s work for Zoe Bios Creative, in which the artist used intaglio printmaking materials to achieve the look of water on paper.
What’s black and white and orange all over? Christian Wijnants
’s intricately knit dress-and-sweater combination—which is equal parts homespun and cool—and Tom Dixon’s mod salt-and pepper-grinder set
. Consider it color blocking at its boldest.
