Runway to Home

Most celebrity crossovers are big flops. Case in point, Mariah Carey almost got lost in oblivion after doing the movie “Glitter.” It would be years before she got emancipated as Mimi and revived what she truly are, a singer. Yet fashion designers crossing over to the home accent world is always a success.Calvin Klein did it with sleek and contemporary bedding, tabletop items and accents almost reminiscent of the underwear he became so famous for.

The American Summer, Cape Lodge and Mayfair collection all evoke of what an American Classic is. That is what Ralph Lauren is all about.

And the newest addition which I am most excited about, Vera Wang just came out with her own home collection.
So ethereal! I love her flower adorned accent throw pillows as much as I love her beautiful bridal gowns.

I can’t wait until other fashion designers do it too. I mean, take the leap from runway fashion to home fashion.

Diane Von Furstenberg’s classic wrap dress
reminds me of this caned-inspired stool.

Betsey Johnson has been dubbed the queen of punk fashion, but at her home she likes pink and chintz.

She would probably love this cherry dresser.

If Monique Lhuiller’s black gowns would be recreated into a candleholder.

It would be this polyresin petal tea light holder.
(Comes in different colors at my site).
And who reminds you of this uptown silver accent table?
Well, Karl Lagerfeld of course!

Runway or home fashion, these designers can certainly do it. They are just not selling clothes or tabletop items, they are selling a lifestyle. And it is a glamorous, sophisticated and beautiful life!

About Maureen

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.
