I’m such a fan of Harlequin. Last year I told you about the Momentum Sheers and Structures collection here. Well, now they have launched Momentum 3&4 which is a collection of weaves.
They are totally on-trend, keying into the current ‘look’ of the international hotel interiors scene. They are design-led, eclectic and beguilingly tactile. In fact the epitome of global chic and effortless style.
There are abstract geometrics, tweedy plains (with shimmering accents!), smart broad stripes, luscious full-pile velvets, deliberately aged, vintage-look velours, artisan ombré stripes, contemporary flamestitch motifs, tufted, slightly irregular raised spots and geometric velvets with an ultra-sheen, all of which can be accented by stunning colour-block plains.
All in an uninhibited palette of indulgent shades, ranging from quiet tones and restful neutrals to fashion-forward, vibrant combinations such as flame, spice, tangerine, citrus, clover, old navy, denim, bottle green, emerald and teal with flashes of iridescence and judicious scatterings of metallics too. I’m particularly drawn to the colours of the images here although this is only one of many combinations. I love the moody feel. It just feels so restful and welcoming.
Design Director Claire Vallis elaborates on the inspiration behind the collections: “For Spring 2013 we felt a very strong pull towards a more global style –we wanted to emphasise the unusual and incorporate contrasting textures. We loved the juxtaposition of artisan knits and rustic woven effects with sumptuous velvets and glamorous metallic and we are thrilled with the overall look – an eclectic and confident fusion of different international styles.”
A success I’m sure.
