A few weeks ago we had our lovely rep Onur from De Le Cuona come in to show us the fantastic collection Savage Beauty. It’s a wonderful combination of linens and rich fabrics, that is perfectly described as a collection where “intrepid travel and haute couture meet”. The fabrics are simply stunning, and so I had to dedicate a blog to the collection.

You can tell that careful consideration has been taken over each and every fabric in the collection, the quality of work and style is top notch, with each fabric both visually and texturally wowing you; if you’re looking for a luxurious collection to deck your interiors in, this is it.

There’s a real sense of a naturalistic element to the fabrics, Flint has a stone-flecked finish to it, much akin to its namesake, and Treasure despite its metallic sheen manages to maintain a rustic element.

The haute couture component of the collection comes out the play in fabrics such as Persia, where “a tween crosses a tapestry and Chanel jacket woven in ribbons and tapes”. It’s a playful, elegant fabric that on closer inspection reveals layers in colours and textures.

Another beautiful piece from the couture side is the delicious Cleopatra, which flows effortlessly like air, as well as the Liquid velvet, which is by far the softest velvet we ever felt in the office!

Another of my favourites is the Mistral fabric. Made to resemble the rippling effect created by the wind in sand dunes and the sea, the fabric is light in weight but heavy in texture and spirit and reflects its brief perfectly.

Vintage is a reversible linen, a creamy off-white colour on top and on the bottom a light beige. Both sides can be used, and De Le Cuona shows this off perfectly with this marvellous chair combining the two sides.

Savage Beauty is a dreamy, romantic collection. It ties together nature and luxury and creates an “adventurous glamour” as they so aptly describe it. However, unlike a lot of collections where the beauty is so present it’s hard to see how the fabrics can function in the real world, Savage Beauty manages to maintain both its practicality and its romance all in one quick, awe-inspiring swoop.
