Interior design and fashion have always been two disciplines often associated with each other, because they do share a lot of similarities, from trends to materials used, etc. In virtue of the London Fashion Week 2019, the Best Design Books blog has come across a unique moodboard that further perpetuates this connection between the two expressive forms. Today, we are going to talk about some of the designers that were presented at the show and compared their work to a specific design style or trend, so take a look and be prepared to be inspired.
Victoria Beckham⇔ Parisian Style
In her second London show, Beckham flirted with a return to the body-conscious silhouette with which she made her name as a designer. In recent years, she has distanced herself from curvy party dresses in favour of fluid skirts, chunky knitwear and tailored coats.
Vivienne Westwood⇔ Deco Revival
Vivienne Westwood used the catwalk as her political stage once again at London Fashion Week on Sunday, as models, activists and actors took to the runway at the showing of her autumn/winter collection to perform speeches that criticised the dangers of climate change, Brexit and capitalism. The British designer showcased her new collection in St John’s Smith Square, Westminster, but her sartorial vision played second fiddle to her sociopolitical one, which saw the actor Rose McGowan perform a powerful speech on the runway wearing a hat with ”ANGEL” written across it.
Burberry⇔ Mid-Century Modern
Titled “Tempest,” Burberry unveiled its expansion collection for the Fall/Winter 2019 season. The venue was split into two very different rooms, with one area using a drill-filled soundtrack while the other played a medley of Black Sabbath and AC/DC. The latter room also had scaffolding behind it, with teenagers scaling it while wearing Burberry’s diffusion line.
Erdem⇔ Forest Green
From the works of EM Forster to Henry James, the literary canon is populated with novels that explore the results of colliding cultures. Puritanism and Europeanism. Metropolis morals and countryside ethics. Imagined narratives are often the basis of Erdem Moralioglu’s collection, and for A/W 2019, he was taken by the tale of Principessa Orietta Doria Pamphilj, the head of one of Italy’s greatest noble families, who died at the age of 78 in 2000.
Alexa Chung⇔ Neutral Tones
For her London Fashion Week debut last season, Alexa Chung took us on a journey with her “Arrivals and Departures” collection for her eponymous label, Alexachung. Her intended destination is now clear: West Coast America, in the year 1983. For Fall 2019, Chung reimagined a version of her birth year, complete with the kind of wardrobe staples and accessories that managed to seem as futuristic and fresh as they did nostalgic for a bygone era.
Now, let’s take a look at two interior design products that best resonate with this edition of London Fashion Week:
Inspired by the God of mountains of the same name, Oreas is a channel-tufted sofa that is fully upholstered in soft cotton velvet, in light blue tones.
The Malay Archipelago was the major inspiration behind the design of this outstanding velvet armchair. The tufted upholstered piece features aged brass legs and also highlights various elements that connect it to nature.
