New York Fashion Week is here once again, shining a light on the stunning collections of designers from around the world. But for creators of couture, the semi-annual event also underscores the ephemeral nature of their industry. The seasonal fashion cycle is enough to make some designers crave a more permanent medium for their art.
With open arms, The Rug Company has welcomed venturesome creators for nearly two decades, fostering a hotbed for collaboration at the natural intersection of home and fashion. Past fashion collaborations include the likes of Alexander McQueen, Marni and Vivienne Westwood. Rodarte and Jonathan Saunders are the latest designers to partner with the prolific luxury rug maker at the end of 2014.
The result? Inspired, contemporary textiles that will last for generations. Using hand-knotted wool and silk, The Rug Company has brought the vision of these artists to life. It’s further proof that style can go beyond the domain of clothing and trends, expressing itself for years to come in our most personal surroundings.
