Jonathan Anderson has made Loewe’s exquisite lifestyle offering as covetable as its ready-to-wear and accessories. The designer’s beautiful blankets, exclusive to NET-A-PORTER, are crafted from a plush blend of striped cashmere and wool, while the label’s ‘Anagram’ motif is jacquard-woven across them and debossed on the appliquéd brown leather patch.
Meanwhile, Loewe’s Home Scents capsule collection was inspired by a stroll through London’s Royal Botanic Gardens, in Kew, where Anderson was taken by myriad verdant aromas. The fragrances span fresh, lush foliage, sweet florals and earthy, raw vegetables – and the candles come ‘potted’ in pretty terracotta, earthenware vessels.
Gabriela Hearst’s eponymous label might be best known for elegant gowns, tailoring and knitwear – as well as its dedication to sustainable practices – but her cashmere blankets (which come in fresh, neutral shades, fringed with pleasing pops of color) are crafted to be just as cozy as her elegant sweaters.
Proving that the best collaborations are sometimes the least expected, historic Italian porcelain brand Ginori last year created a printed tableware collection with the late Virgil Abloh’s cult label, Off-White. The monochromatic pieces juxtapose a graffiti-art print with the baroque influences of Ginori’s 1735 ‘Antico Doccia’ fine crockery. Perfection.
When Erdem Moralıoglu launched the lifestyle arm of his eponymous label, he said that he was looking to create objects “to keep, treasure and pass on… that have a permanence about them.” And he has certainly succeeded in doing so with his delectable throws, which are spun in Scotland from a soft merino wool and cashmere blend, and boast Erdem’s signature floral designs – often reminiscent of vintage wallpaper prints.
Anissa Kermiche’s joyful and exuberant designs are showcased not only in her fine-jewelry collections, but also in her widely popular, cheeky ceramics, which celebrate the female form. The label’s ‘Jugs Jug, Love Handles and Breast Friend’ set showcases miniature versions of the brand’s three best-selling vases – in glazed and gold-plated earthenware.
La DoubleJ is renowned for its joyous, maximalist designs – whether it be clothing or eye-catching tableware and statement décor pieces. Made to be admired, in striking, contrasting colorways, the brand’s homeware is crafted in collaboration with artisans across Italy. The brightly colored ‘Murano’ glassware is hand-blown at Venetian atelier Salviati, while the richly hued porcelain is hand-painted at Verona-based Ancap.
