Fashion and design are increasingly becoming more interwoven and cross-contaminated, which is why we’re suggesting how to dress up your table for Spring/Summer 2016.
Both fashion and design have always been about finding the right combination of materials, forms, craftsmanship and functionality. But today, as never before, these two disciplines have become inextricably intertwined. The word “designer”, for example, usually referred to a person who creates interiors and objects, is now used instead of “stylist”: fashion designers create exclusive custom-fitted clothing, made from high-quality materials and traditional techniques. In design as well, there is a growing demand for handmade objects in limited editions a sort of “haute couture” that has migrated from the closet into the home. Color palettes, patterns and trends are coinciding among fashion, home textiles and tableware objects.
For this Spring/Summer season we have selected the ultimate looks in fashion and table settings.

And remember, as Ennio Capasa, Founder of Costume National, said in an interview with Elle Décor: “… the basic difference (between fashion and design) is in the life of what is being created: a design object is like a turtle that lives 150 years, while a dress is a dragonfly that lives for a season”.
