Living Etc - - AGENDA ⁄ NEWS -

Livingetc HQ is al­ways ex­cited to hear word of a fash­ion-meets-fur­ni­ture col­lab­o­ra­tion, es­pe­cially when the part­ner­ship is one we wouldn’t have seen com­ing. Step for­ward JJ Martin, cre­ative di­rec­tor of Mi­lan-based life­style brand La Doublej, and Ital­ian fur­ni­ture maker Kartell. Prov­ing to be one of the most talked-about col­lec­tions from this year’s Salone del Mo­bile fur­ni­ture fair, the fur­ni­ture maker’s part­ner­ship with the es­teemed brand sees some of its most recog­nis­able pieces reimag­ined in the vin­tage prints that line JJ’S evening dresses, silk shirts and swimwear. Take the Com­poni­bili cabi­net, for ex­am­ple – a desk-side sta­ple given a dis­tinctly out-of-of­fice feel thanks to Seven­ties-in­spired prints and Twen­ties, Art Deco-es­que geo­met­rics. Our verdict? A dou­ble thumbs up.
