Kravet is proud to announce the launch of a new collection of home fabrics and trimmings from the legendary designer Diane von Furstenberg. The line showcases her renowned aesthetic and sense of print and color, as seen in many of her iconic patterns. Von Furstenberg effortlessly brings high fashion into the home with prints, wovens and draperies and custom trimmings designed to accent the fabrics with an exotic edge.
“I am thrilled to work with Kravet on this collection of fabrics for the home,” said Von Furstenberg, “I have always said, ‘Design your life,’ and we have created a collection that will allow you to do just that. It is effortless, bold and so DVF.”
The collection has a strong foundation in black and white with pops of color, and incorporates the designer’s signature bold animal prints, such as Spotted Cat and Funky Zebra. Geometric and abstract prints are also featured, for an eclectic blend designed to be mixed and matched. Color palettes range from berry and orange jewel tones inspired by the sunsets in Rajasthan, to azure blues that recall the Caribbean Sea, and desert-inspired neutrals in sand and stone.
“Diane is an icon in the fashion industry,” said Kravet creative director Scott Kravet, “Her bold and fearless style and use of color has translated beautifully with this collection of fabrics for the home.”
Von Furstenberg stepped into the world of fashion in 1972, and within two years created a name for herself after she introduced the wrap dress, which came to symbolize independence and empowerment for a generation of women. She had sold more than one million dresses by 1976, and was featured on the cover of Newsweek. Von Furstenberg re-launched the dress that started it all in 1997, connecting her with a new generation of women, and reestablishing her company as the global luxury lifestyle brand that it is today.
