Through exploration of the peculiar and picturesque, the hopes of this collection is to become somewhat of a lavish oddity lifestyle brand resulting in a mixed assemble of interior pieces and fashion accessories.
With ‘Curiosity Cabinets’ being the main inspiration behind this project, the compositions created throughout are designed to have a slight dark and obscure sense that is cradled and concealed within more familiar forms of beauty. By camouflaging these unconventional motifs, this will provide the collection with a sense of mystery, therefore achieving the ‘curiosity’ element needed within this project. Collections and time capsules, such as Calke Abbey, are what provides this assortment with the bizarre yet magnificent scenes that drive and influence the designs to move forward. Although some of the imagery may be unsettling, through investigating and experimenting with rich colour, exemplary materials and polished techniques, an overall opulent appearance will be achieved. Combining plush velvets, silks, and deep hues of greens and reds, this will bring together a luxe yet comfortable lifestyle.
Using unusual designs with a touch of commerciality, this project will target those who appreciate design with character and quality, bringing curious, edgy style to their life. Having distinctive, quality design, this collection is aiming towards the higher end of the market that wishes to have a unique and exclusive collection inside their homes.
