The latest collaboration of Kravet with Sue Firestone cherishes organic simplicity. Firestone’s main inspiration in designing her first collection with Kravet Couture, Malibu, features light billowy prints and sheers, reflective of Firestone’s native California. The fabrics exude sophisticated west coast living with delicate textures and the soft neutral color palette. Special accents highlight the exquisite technique required to create these designs, like Ramus, made with a unique burnout treatment to form its organic branch-like pattern, and Looped Ribbons, which features an intricate embroidery rope on a linen blend ground.
Kravet Couture’s Modern Tailor collection is inspired by the fashion runway with a focus on bespoke tailoring. Finely stitched embroideries, pleated fabrics, patch-worked wools, cozy cable chenille and mélange knits are reinvented into luxurious fabrics relevant to layered decorating of today.
