{couture}

Newly revealed in Milan, Couture, Dutch designer Marcel Wanders' collection of wallpapers for Graham & Brown.

{from Graham & Brown:}
"Couture . . . is a collection of eight striking wallpaper designs. Each pattern in the Couture range is named after a glamorous woman, or man, with an inspirational name; Suzanne, Alice, Grace, Kelly, Audrey, Isabella, Stella and Henry."

{from Marcel Wanders:}
“I love the hard definition of architectural space. I love the naked fragility of the human body. Unfortunately the naked human body cannot live in clean architectural space.

We need interiors because architecture is too technically hard and rational to live in. Therefore I love to blur the boundaries between architecture and interior, between walls and furniture, between furniture and fashion.

As our fashion dresses our bodies, wallpaper dresses our walls. Wallpaper and fashion mediate between our naked bodies and architecture. In this way, architecture and man can live together with the sophisticated illusion of Couture.”

Flying models not included.

All women have one thing in common and that is they all want to look good and feel good about their appearance, they all love to be admired and complemented on the way they look, I tell you the fashion dresses, clothes people chose to wear to this event amazed me. Out of the two hundred people that were in attendance about half were appropriately dressed for the occasion. http://new-fashion-designers-current-trends.blogspot.com
