Hands down – Paris is one of the most glamorous metropolises on the world. The way French women achieve this elegant and stylish look with a graceful easiness will forever be a mystery. Who wouldn’t love to spend a day in Paris?
I for sure would! I would stroll through the city, buy myself an exquisite perfume, walk on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, visit the modern art Centre Pompidou, sit in a nice street café afterwards and enjoy a cup of coffee and a croissant.
Inspired by the Parisian Chic I pulled together an unusual color scheme for my newest collection: Combining navy blue and graphite sounds a bit dull, doesn’t it? But add soft, pale pink for a feminine touch and golden sparkles for glamour, bring in lightness with aqua, white and chartreuse and spice it up with a grassy green – and you have it: that elegant look, soft and stylish at the same time.
Day in Paris has some large-scale florals…
...some mid-scale geometrics
… and some blenders, which fit in with many other lines.
Of course you want to know, what quilts look good with this group. I heard you, I sketched some and here are my four quilt patterns accompanying the line:
What about pulling out only the greens, whites, greys and graphites and make the well known x & + quilt.
Or take the aquas and greens, make some traditional stars with simple half-square-triangles and let them fade away into an indigo background with an asymmetrical setting.
You got yourself a Layer Cake? Perfect! Here are two suggestions: Play with machine appliquéd half circles or let improvisational snippets swarm around a modern typo.
I had lots of fun creating this line and can’t wait to see, what you will make out of it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the designing process!
Day in Paris will be available in stores by April 2019.
