Vogue Liv­ing’s win­ter refresh, in­clud­ing the in­side word on Cather­ine Martin’s new col­lec­tion with Mokum

My cre­ative process with Mokum is ex­tremely col­lab­o­ra­tive. I en­joy trans­lat­ing de­signs on pa­per into tex­tile and wall­cov­er­ing ap­pli­ca­tions. My in­spi­ra­tion for this eclec­tic col­lec­tion came from my re­cent foray into trop­i­cal flo­ral and fauna pat­terns. The col­lec­tion ref­er­ences Jardin Ma­jorelle, the botan­i­cal gar­den in Mar­rakech by French Ori­en­tal­ist Jac­ques Ma­jorelle.

I seek a style where be­ing Baroque is el­e­gant and mod­ern. This col­lec­tion is meant to be both glam­orous and play­ful by com­bin­ing an­i­mal print, em­bel­lished trop­i­cal de­sign and a lux­u­ri­ous pal­ette.
