Following the thread of Yves Delorme Collection Autumn Winter 2015 …

Following the thread of Collections

It all begins with a thread of silk or cotton, stitched or embroidered, the essential structure of textiles and the result of the transformation of plant fibers into wovens.

Then, the thread, as a dynamic and graphic wave, animating a surface.

Next, the thread of a story as in Toile de Jouy paying tribute to a historical textile tradition.

Or, the thread following the curves of the Tokaïdo Road in Japan, at the origin of the woodblock prints by Hiroshige during the era of Edo. Or yet still, the red thread reminiscent of the Opera to celebrate the holidays…

Calicot Peacock : In the 17th century, the name Calicot was given to the group of cotton fabrics manufactured in India, the origin of the name comes from the city of Calicut. Bed linen in printed percale 200threads/inch2, bias finishing.

Fibre Fusain : Fiber is a botanic rope transformed into a textile yam for the weaving industry or the sewing. Bed linen in printed percale 200threads/inch2, bias finishing.

Tokaido Caramel : Tokaïdo “the road side of East sea” is the link road between Tokyo and Kyoto in Japan, constructed during Edo era, the source of Hiroshige painting. Bed linen in printed sateen 300threads/inch2, bias finishing.

Galant Cuivre : The word “cravate” in French is a derivative of Croate, the Croatian cavaliers under King Louis XIV and recognized by their knotted neck scarves. This new accessory was named with the word “cravate.” With further development of menswear, the cravate became the essential element of urban elegance. Bed linen in printed sateen 300threads/inch2, bias finishing.

Swan milk : The absolute milky-white and luxurious plumage, full of grace as are the curved lines of the iconic Yves Delorme logo. As essential and elegant as the thread of our story. Bed linen in damask sateen 500 threads/inch², flounce finishing, reversing to plain colour.

Pénélope Opéra : Bed linen in damask sateen 300 threads/inch2, piping finishing, reversing to Triomphe.

Yves Delorme’s floral displays during the Chelsea Flower Show

Flower Power!

Did you know that at Yves Delorme we like to celebrate the Chelsea Flower Show ?

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is a garden show held in May by the Royal Horticultural Society in Chelsea, London. It is one of our favourite flower show in the world. The highlights usually include the avant-garde show gardens designed by leading names but also smaller gardens.

This Spring, as big fan of the event we presented our floral collection Ailleurs in the windows in Harrods. Our guests could also enjoy a masterclass on “How to make perfumed paper flowers”.

At the Yves Delorme Ellis street flagship store, we told the story of Princess and the Pea. We used many mattresses for this floral display.

It was so poetic and romantic…

You can now check out for more Yves Delorme’s inspirations during the London event!

 

The Linen Road – Spring Summer collection 2015

WHEN THE WIND BLOWS

The “Courant d’Air” collection is an invitation to travel.

A breath of wind crumples the surface of the water, conjuring up sinusoidal waves. Water becomes an optical instrument that refracts, reflects and disperses light. Short, coloured threads echo this phenomenon in the undulating effect of “Eau Douce Glace” Jacquard.

Softly swaying trees in a tropical forest become the foam on a sea of plants. Every fragile leaf and flower tissue captures humidity from the air and light from the sun. In the “Ailleurs” print, air waves captured in picture form are in perfect harmony with movement in the plant world.

BEYOND THE LOOKING GLASS

There is a fine line between what we see and what we imagine. The multiplication of a faceted geometric shape is captured in graphic form in “Prisme”. Captured in a play of weaves, with a satin warp and a satin weft.

A delicate pink hue, Nude, adds warmth to its luminous whiteness. “Miroir” propels the graphic shape on a horizontal trajectory. The parallel lines of each side of the prism are sketched out in bourdon stitch, in the colour Nude, on dazzling white cotton satin.

Using a play of watermark-effect weaves, “Visible” renders some areas of the shape visible and others invisible. The plant shape is merely suggested by the two tones of yarn, natural and white. Looking into a mirror can make certain items appear more clearly or multiply their number, erasing those that seem less important with the intention of making things look different.

CULTIVATING YOUR GARDEN

The verb To Be is synonymous with existing.

Existing in tea green for the Guelder Rose on a snowball tree.

Existing in powder pink for the Ranunculus bloom.

Existing in bluish white for the Lilac flower.

Being is the fact of really existing in substance, in essence.

Being a Guelder Rose, a snowball of small corollas. Being a Cumulus, a cotton-wool cloud made up of tiny droplets of water.  Being a Ranunculus flower, a compact ball of dozens of serried petals. Being an Opacus, the type of cloud that blocks out the light. Being a Lilac flower, corollas of 4 single petals in superposed layers of white and lilac ripples.  Being a Stratocumulus, a low-altitude cloud that develops vertically and becomes fog when it encounters the earth. Using comparisons to better define the nature of things. Creating a dialogue between images to foster poetry.
