There are many sim­i­lar­i­ties when it comes to de­sign­ing for fash­ion and de­sign­ing for home­ware—both re­quire care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion of form, func­tion and ma­te­rial, while stay­ing true to a brand’s ethos and de­liv­er­ing un­mis­tak­able vis­ual ap­peal. It’s no sur­prise that many fash­ion brands have par­layed their aes­thetic, and their ex­per­tise, to home­ware.

The sum­mer is­sue of Hong Kong Tatler Homes high­lights ex­am­ples of when the worlds of fash­ion and home de­sign over­lap—be­gin­ning with the home of Edoardo Caovilla, cre­ative direc­tor of his fa­ther’s epony­mous lux­ury shoe brand René Caovilla, for our cover story (p. 52). Caovilla ap­plied the same at­ten­tion to de­tail he brings to his shoe de­signs to his home, a sunny du­plex in cen­tral Mi­lan built around his family’s love of the Ital­ian lifestyle: family, good food and wine.

As the pres­i­dent of Lane Craw­ford and Joyce, An­drew Keith is no stranger to good de­sign, be it in home­ware or fash­ion. Keith and his part­ner, ar­chi­tect Rod­er­ick Mur­ray, per­son­ally chose the fur­ni­ture, art and light­ing fix­tures for their Ge­or­gian town­house in Ed­in­burgh, fill­ing their sec­ond home with pieces they know and love (p.76). In our Trea­sure Trove sec­tion (p.12), we fawn over the ex­quis­ite De Gour­nay wall­pa­per de­signed by Edgardo Osorio, head de­signer for fash­ion brand Aquaz­zura. And among our top 10 picks from the 2017 Salone del Mo­bile in Mi­lan are re­cent launches from Louis Vuit­ton Ob­jets No­mades and Ermenegildo Zegna (p.22).

Our High Roller Home (p.104) for this is­sue is a 30,000sqft man­sion in Los An­ge­les fea­tur­ing bold con­tem­po­rary decor and owned by fash­ion vet­eran Max Azria, fur­ther demon­strat­ing how fash­ion has raised the bar for good de­sign in home­ware and in­te­ri­ors.
