KARTELL x LA DOUBLEJ
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.
