The new Metamorphosis collection, designed by Lori Weitzner for Samuel & Sons, is an impassioned celebration of the smallest of creatures and how they live in our natural world. Whimsical, colourful and multi-dimensional, they have been the artist’s muse for centuries, and are now proving to be the inspiration for a refreshing and stylishly nuanced collection of passementerie.
Adding an instant layer of texture and delight, the collection includes delicate, stylised dragonflies, beaded, embroidered glitter-like insects and honeycomb motifs, which add a touch of whimsy and sophistication. These are combined with more abstract interpretations that evoke sea spray or the pleat within an ethereal and graceful butterfly’s wings. Silky finishes, finely woven yarns, metallic beads, embroidered knots and faux suede appliqué and glass beads all bring each detail to life.
Organically inspired botanical border Illuminée, features undulating palms of leaves, which are illuminated through a vivid ombre of colours. This new addition to the collection, combines the delicate leaf patterning with a palette of earthy tones, and enables Illuminée to bring the outdoors in and infuse interiors with elements of nature. The Illuminée Border processes lyricism and great movement created by its pattern of interwoven palms of curved leaves, which are in turn brought to life with a radiate spectrum of multiple colours, whereas the 3.5” version of the Illuminée Border’s pattern is non-directional and the border itself completely reversible, making this an extremely versatile pattern and doubling the number of colour variations. On the face, the leaves are illustrated in full colour cascading over a neutral ground.
The palette is inspired by luminous colours found in nature from the aqua of the sea and sand, autumn burnished shades of olive, gold and terracotta, the iridescence of magical creatures’ wings with celadon, aqua, teal and topaz, sunset hues of blues, teals, and vivid carnelian red to the darkest navy and transitions to the golden glow of starlight.
