Our homes have become our sanctuaries now more than ever, whether as a space to host friends or simply somewhere to unwind and get away from it all. And it seems we’re not the only ones – the fashion world has taken notice, too, with some of the industry’s leading names switching their attention from the runway to new homeware collections. From The Vampire’s Wife’s chintz-heavy new launch The Vampire’s House to Jonathan Saunders’ textured pieces, we’ve rounded up the fashion-forward new interiors ranges you need to know about.
After creating her highly coveted fashion line – The Vampie’s Wife – with her distinctive dresses now red-carpet staples and creating designer face masks which sold out as soon as they hit the shelves, the multi-talented Susie Cave is now turning her attention to homewares with the launch of The Vampire’s House. With each collection tackling a different room, the first range – available exclusively at Matchesfashion.com – focuses on the bedroom, with silk satin bed covers and oversized pillows in chintzy floral prints and the brand’s signature metallic lamé taking centre stage. Alongside this you’ll find embroidered velvet hot water bottles, lavender pouches and floral silk teddy bears to add a dash of old Hollywood style to your boudoir.
The London-based designer parted ways with his eponymous fashion label, House of Holland, last year to pursue a career in ceramics and has never looked back. Handmade in his Hackney studio, Holland first discovered a love of pottery during the pandemic, when he was looking for a new creative outlet. The result was his hand-moulded earthenware pieces, which range from side plates and mugs to striking chalice bowls and platters, each featuring his distinctive wavy stripe pattern in bold colourways. As well as his own made-to-order designs he has also collaborated with brands including Liberty London and Soho Home, for whom he’s just launched a range of candle holders and Christmas ornaments in new festive colours.
The Scottish designer first made his name on the fashion scene in 2006, when he launched his boldly-coloured dresses which caught the eye of Diane von Furstenberg and led to him becoming the label’s first-ever creative director. Now the designer – who originally trained in furniture design – has moved away from fashion to focus on homewares with the launch of Saunders Studio. Sold exclusively through Matchesfashion.com, the collection is made up of a range of gloriously tactile pieces for the home, from colour-saturated fringed suede floor pillows and wool blankets in stitches lifted from his early ready-to-wear collections to textured soy and beeswax candles.
Uruguayan designer Gabriela Hearst is best known for her pioneering ready-to-wear collections, which have just earned her the Leader of Change Award for the Environment at the recent Fashion Awards, and for her work at Chloé, where she is currently the creative director. But some of her most popular pieces of late have been her beautifully crafted cashmere blankets. Hand-knit in her country of birth by a non-profit organisation called Manos Del Uruguay, her sought-after patchwork pieces can be used as cosy throws or worn as wraps, with her latest range featuring limited-edition pieces made from dead-stock tie-dye fabric from her Spring 2021 collection.
London-based label Shrimps, founded by designer Hannah Weiland and beloved by some of the capital’s most stylish trendsetters including Alexa Chung and Adwoa Aboah, has branched out from their usual cult beaded bags and brightly coloured faux fur coats to create their first homewares range. Taking inspiration from the brand’s best-selling knitwear, they’ve launched a limited-edition collection of wool-blend hand-knitted blankets and hot water bottles featuring whimsical embroideries of flowers and bunches of grapes. Included in the drop is an adorable baby blanket in the softest merino wool.
