06 May Friday Files – New de Le Cuona Collection – Savage Couture
“Savage Couture is where intrepid travel and haute couture meet”
De Le Cuona has introduced the marriage of savage raw linens and couture artisan fabrics, creating “new interior territory”. Among this glamorously audacious collection are innovative textiles in an array of sensual textures and vigorous colour ways.
Discover the profound sophistication of effortless linen in all its elegant and harsh façades. The exclusive collection seamlessly integrates silk, wool, parchment and metallic textiles to allow for luxurious layering of the distinctive evocativeness and opulence of de Le Cuona fabrics.
Each fabric is handcrafted and produced using artisan techniques. Bernie de Le Cuona manages to pioneer exceptional effects through these traditional means of production. Savage Couture boasts – but is not limited to – ‘Cleopatra’, a charming silk linen blend, which perfectly drapes in a manner similar to that of a floor-sweeping gown; and ‘Persia’, a rich tweed consisting of ribbons, tapes and heavy metallic threads, which culminate to produce a stunning Chanel jacket-like tapestry appearance.
“Style is about surprise and travel is the bedrock of originality. Savage Couture marries both forces in a richly evocative collection designed for a worldwide stage.”
