Yesterday we trekked uptown to the gorgeous Robert Allen studio to give some of our favorite bloggers a behind the scenes at our newest Robert Allen collaboration—the Modern Color Theory collection (debuting soon!). Christiane presented her inspirations for the collection: rooted in art history, the line culls its bold motifs and emotionality from French masters like Henri Matisse and Fernand Léger.
During the presentation, Christiane divulged this year's signature DwellStudio creature—the gazelle—chosen by our design team for its chic and majestic qualities. She also touched on some of our key themes like our modern riff on a zebra stipe, elements pulled from nature, graphic botanicals and mix + match basics in glamourous metallics.
Also on hand were Robert Allen's Christy Almond, VP of Fabric Design and Hannah Alderson, Director of Fabric Design who gave the group insight into the technical design aspects of the collection. After the presentation, we hunkered down for a delicious lunch from the The City Bakery right in the Robert Allen Design studio. We had a lovely time meeting all the creative and tech-savvy bloggers and chatting about design trends over lunch!
Thank you to the awesome Robert Allen team for hosting and thank you to all the amazing bloggers... it was a great event!
