We've just had a visit from de Le Cuona. It's been while since we were last updated and we were not disappointed. It was a real treat to see their fantastic new collection ranging from their signature linens and paisleys to chunky tweeds and luxurious velvets.
With so many fabulous fabrics it's hard to pick a favourite although we have fallen in love with their new velvet, Vienna - a plush non directional velvet in a gorgeous earthy palette of 8 shades. We thought the navy blue was particularly special.
There was also a stunning sheer called Mistral - a beautiful washed linen with an open weave inspired by the rippling effect caused by the wind on the sea and sand dunes.
Next was the multi-talented Serenity - not only gorgeous but clever too. This demure double-sided paisley is made using an incredibly complex weaving process to produce an all over paisley on one side and the effect of a delicate line drawing on the reverse. The wool and cotton mix is also buttery-soft to touch.
We also love a multi-tonal weave and Rogue is sure to become a new workhorse in our textile toolkit - a super-smart linen and wool tweed in a mix of heather shades.
We could go on and on, but suffice to say we are smitten with the new collection and can't wait to start using these fabrics on our next project.
