From Fashion House to Your House: Designer Prints for Home

by ·

As a lover of fashion, I naturally turn to the latest runway or street style looks for interior design inspiration. Decomposing fashion into its basic elements is one sure fire method. But luckily, many fashion houses provide an even easier option – their very own home décor collections. Often, these collections are informed by existing trademark prints, making the transition from fashion to interiors perfectly seamless. Two great examples are new lines produced by luxury lifestyle company Hermès and fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier. Both translate signature motifs into chic home décor.

Rallye 24 by Hermès

Hermès recently launched Rallye 24, a collection of tableware inspired by the race track as well as their classic chaîne d’ancre pattern. It provides a more casual alternative to the company’s other décor offerings. With its dishwasher- and microwave-safe construction, the collection is perfectly functional. I also love Rallye 24’s modern lines and bright color options, which are also inspired by racing. Just a few pieces added to existing dinnerware can transform an ordinary table setting into a fashionable statement.

Hermès has also released Circuit 24 wallpaper, which features the same racetrack motif.

Jean-Paul Gaultier for Lelièvre

Also arriving on the interior design scene is Jean-Paul Gaultier’s latest collaboration with Lelièvre, a Parisian textile house. Widely known for outfitting Madonna in now-iconic designs, Gaultier draws inspiration from other signature looks for this collection of eight fabrics. Most notably, Illusion is a fun take on his trademark nautical stripe. It’s the perfect print for pillows or a whimsical armchair.

These are just two of the many home décor collections by prominent fashion houses. Do you have a favorite?
