Kips Bay Show House 2018

Warmer days and flowers in bloom signal more than springtime in Manhattan. May promises the much-anticipated unveiling of the annual Kips Bay Show House—a culmination and a celebration of interior design talent, imagination, creativity, color and innovation. This year did not disappoint, and as always, we took great pride in seeing Samuel & Sons trimmings on display inside one of the industry’s most prestigious showhouses.

Creating Couture

When first presented with a new collection, one is often left intrigued by the journey that led to its creation. Our partner, friend and renowned designer Lori Weitzner has graciously offered an intimate look inside her studio and the process of creating Couture.

New for Spring 2018, the design of Couture was a labor of love inspired by the work of contemporary fashion icons. Taking cues from advanced construction techniques, innovative approaches to pleating, embroidery and coloration took shape.

Enjoy this behind-the-scenes look—from watercolors to color trials—at the development of  Couture cords, tapes, brush fringes, tassel fringes and holdbacks.

London Design Week 2018

A milestone for our London showroom set the stage, and our creative wheels in motion, in the months leading up to London Design Week 2018. Beyond showcasing the latest designs for Spring 2018, Creative Director Milton De Paul was among the talented tastemakers chosen to participate in the Legends at Design Centre Chelsea Harbour. This series of visionary window displays and showcases offered visitors “a voyage of discovery on every floor.”

Our five years in London, a period which has seen tremendous growth, prestigious awards and successful showings at both Paris Déco Off and Decorex, inspired a series of five exquisite cakes. Taking cues from five collections having launched between 2014 and 2018, our window display of beaded, embroidered and tassel-trimmed confections paid tribute to the Gala, Shangri-La, La Terre, Oberon and Cirque collections.

 

Behind-the-scenes moments captured during the creation of each design…

Paris Déco Off 2018

Annually running alongside Maison & Objet every January, Paris Déco Off is a key event in the interior design calendar which attracts an international crowd of industry professionals and press eager to view the latest collections from the industries’ finest and most innovative brands. We were proud to present our new Spring 2018 collections—Cirque, Hair On Hide, Couture and Matelassé—at this year’s show.

The creative team arrived with a vision, and more pom poms than one could count. Upon arrival in Paris, they set out to transform a gallery space in Saint Germain into an unforgettable pop-up showroom. The concept would center around a white Wisteria tree placed in the middle of the gallery so as to take advantage of its soaring ceilings. Using elements from the Cirque collection, hundreds of pom-pom tendrils were created and suspended above two bespoke pom-pom poodles—a nod to France’s national dog.

The collections were met with praise and we had the pleasure of welcoming Lori Weitzner into the showroom on more than one occasion. Guests donned the hats from our Couture ad campaign, posing for Polaroid snapshots—the perfect, pocket-sized mementos of their visit to our Paris pop-up.
