Fall Introductions: Shangri-La Collection

Bedside
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.
