Samuel and Sons Passementerie


Samuel & Sons Beach Club

Recent visitors to our NYC showroom have had the pleasure of viewing the latest in a long line of imaginative window displays. For years, Luis Valentin has been the creative mastermind behind our window designs. This summer his big idea brings a small-scale beach club to Third Avenue trimmed in tapes, fringes, braids and tassels from our Harbour, Cabana, Twist & Knot, LabyrinthCarousel, Printemps and Aurelia collections.

The Samuel & Sons Beach Club sets the scene for summertime fun in high style complete with a cast of iconic Gene Dolls. Every detail was considered, down to the tiny Labyrinth towels, impeccably trimmed cushions, even teeny tiny copies of Architectural Digest and Veranda Magazine. Join us in congratulating our creative team on another job well done!

Fall Introductions: Shangri-La Collection

Dreamlike destinations serve as inspiration for Roger Thomas, be it his design of interiors, jewelry, lighting, fabrics, wallcoverings, hardware, or in this instance, hand-beaded, embroidered silk and linen borders. In this, his third collection in collaboration with Samuel & Sons, he drew from the fictional paradise of Shangri-La.

Inspired by the places I love and by the sheer beauty of these techniques of artisanal craft and handwork, I began drawing the most romantic and timeless effects I could dream. These are the qualities I wanted to evoke in Shangri-La.

Elements of his designs for Italian jewelry maker SICIS, crafted using an intricate mosaic technique, can be seen above in our Mandarin Cloud Beaded Border.
