We continue our exciting collaboration with Catherine Martin, releasing our fourth collection – Majorelle.
Our latest release is an eclectic collection of luxury textiles inspired by her recent foray into tropical flora and fauna whilst taking design influence from Orientalism and exotic faraway lands. The Majorelle collection, references the iconic French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and his enchanting retreat, Jardin Majorelle in Marrakesh, famed for its sophisticated and exotic interior design, brilliant blue exterior and magnificent gardens. Catherine Martin’s nod to Yves Saint Laurent, pays homage to her French heritage and love affair with French culture, design and interior architecture. The collection revisits quintessential textile design from the last 100 years, reflecting elements of Moorish tile systems paired with animal skins, tropical palm prints, lustrous and tactile velvet plus a hint of Art Deco!
Part I of the Majorelle collection unveils a sense of what’s to come. Delivering a diverse offering which includes; luxuriant velvet, an elegant and tailored basket weave, a glamorous leopard skin and two sophisticated drapery textiles. Part II, due for release later this year, expands on this theme with its mix of luxury constructions and opulent colour palette which includes stunning coordinating wallpaper and trimming designs. The Majorelle collection embraces exotic themes and pays homage to one of Catherine Martin’s dearest design influences, maximist Tony Duquette, who advocates that “More is more!”
