Fashion for the Home: Catwalk to Cushions

Colourful Missoni Home cushions

The connection between the fashion world and interior design has long been established, with brands such as Mission making the move into the Home market in 1983. Each season, we see our favourite designers create beautiful looks for our wardrobes, and these patterns, colours and styles inevitably get transferred to interior collections ensuring our homes are as stylish. More and more fashion designers are creating their own stand-alone lines, from Versace to Roberto Cavalli, as a way to express their creativity in a longer-lasting way.

It’s now easier than ever to get your fashion fix at home thanks to soft furnishings from Calvin Klein or Bella Freud’s signature slogans on cosy cushions. We take a closer look at some of our favourite fashion for the home pieces and their catwalk inspirations….

Fashion is ephemeral and this is its great charm. Home is long-lasting like elegance. Rosita Missoni.

Renowned worldwide for his iconic style, the house of Karl Lagerfeld celebrates his enormous legacy and pours his passion, intuition, and creativity into the core of every design. Fused with a contemporary, forward-looking spirit, the brand combines Parisian classics with a rock-chic attitude and tailored silhouettes.

The prolific designer, who passed away in 2019, was such a connoisseur of fragrances he could often identify which scents people near him were wearing. He was also known to spritz different scents on his curtains and slipcovers at home. A few years before his death, Lagerfeld selected five fragrances for the collection. Some of the fragrances, like iris, cardamom, cinnamon, sandal, and black tea which are used in the Karl Lagerfeld boutiques.

The link between catwalk trends to interiors is seamless. Every season it is evident to see how the hottest catwalk trends can soon be seen in our homes. The catwalk provides a constant source of inspiration not just for our wardrobes but also what we will be buying for our homes.

OK magazine writer and fashion stylist Megan Reese shares her take on the different pace with home fashion and why Missoni Home is a timeless choice...

Working in fashion, I’m used to seeing new trends come up every season, whether it be a new coveted shade, a must-have cut or a modern day take on retro style, there’s constantly something new to lust after. But with homes, the turnover isn’t quite so fast, which is a relief otherwise we would have to be redesigning our living rooms every few months. No, the correlation between fashion and homeware trends is far more subtle, albeit a colour craze, or within fabrics and textures.
