Home is where the heart is. If your heart lies in fashion, there is no better way to dress your interiors than shopping from the many covetable homeware lines that have emerged from major fashion houses this year. While several of these brands have been wading in the homeware and furniture pool for a while now, it is during the surge of the pandemic that these home collections have truly flourished—we have, after all, been spending all our time indoors.
Here, Vogue Singapore rounds up the six fashion houses that are serving up exquisite homeware lines bound to turn any living space into a haven of contemporary art and design.
Saint Laurent has pushed their homeware arm forward with full force during the pandemic. The house recently announced the Rive Droite line in collaboration with Memphis, the iconic Italian design group famously used by Karl Lagerfeld to decorate his Monaco house in the 1980s. Expect stand out pieces for your abode with an exciting mix of colourful patterns, textures and shapes in true Memphis style.
The Maison Dior collection successfully delivers practical items for the home that are both refined and elegant. The homeware line reimagines motifs from the brand’s ready-to-wear collection, with delicate prints and feminine lines taking shape in the form of plates, vases and even a Dalí inspired water pitcher.
Gucci‘s homeware items are a joyful extension of Alessandro Michele’s surreal Gucci-verse, where eclecticism meets kooky 70s’ vintage. From a particularly stunning foot stool to the idiosyncratic tiger pillow, these are pieces bound to kick start conversations and bring people together over colouring pads and Tequila Sunrise.
Louis Vuitton’s homeware pieces are crafted to truly make a statement. With items made in collaboration with the likes of Japanese architect and designer Tokujin Yoshioka and Brazilian design duo Fernando and Humberto Campana, the house is set to offer a wide range of objects for the home, be it a lounging cocoon swing chair by the Campana brothers, or the highly sought after Vivienne—the mascot of house.
If you are looking for homeware that exudes modernity, look to Hermès for sleek, contemporary designs. With a luscious colour palette of deep oranges, blood reds and glossy golds, each item boasts clean lines, refined construction and premium quality, from an opulent magnifying glass in the shape of an eye, to a tea box that will instantly elevate your kitchen.
Belgian designer Ann Demeulemeester released two lines of tableware and a series of Andon-looking lamps with Belgian design studio Serax in 2019. The black and red “chiaroscuro” strokes on the iconic Demeulemeester plates are created from viscose threads and painstakingly painted by hand—one stroke at a time. The result: a tie-dye effect that truly transforms the every day object into a breathtaking piece of art.
