Vogue’s large September issue is so influential in the fashion world that a documentary followed the publication’s production. Not to compare apples and oranges…good interior design has both a gravitas and life span that is anathema to fashion but I do enjoy visuals in the creative visioning of wearable design. It can be fun to switch it up and welcome the season’s zeitgeist with a pillow or accessory. Here are some of the varied trends celebrated in Vogue’s September issue:
ASYMMETRY. The September issue included a feature on Bauhaus-inspired designs with clean lines and graphic color combinations. The sharp asymmetry is reminiscent of fashion designs from the 1980s.
The look can be incorporated into the home with the Sculpted Origami pillow by West Elm.
ANIMAL PRINTS. These graphic prints have been featured in fashion magazines for years and persist because of their graphic nature and timeless appeal. Classic leopard was seen in a travel bag by Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton.
And this bold leopard-print skirt by Valentino. Of course, Vogue had the good sense not to pair similarly-scaled animal prints together.
Valentino also brought us this zippy zebra-printed coat.
Zebra can be seen in this needlepoint pillow by Ballard Designs.
And fabric options from the venerable Brunschwig & Fils.
EMBROIDERY. Ornate embroidery was seen in this image in this dress by Chanel, modeled by musician Florence Welch.
And in this Ralph Lauren ad.
A lush embroidered pillow by Beaumont and Fletcher brings a touch of extravagance to an otherwise sensible interior.
When it comes to seasonal trends, home fashion follows fashion!
