Love It: Fashion to Frames

The dust has settled from New York Fashion Week and we’ve all been brought back down to reality. So, we thought this would be the perfect moment to remind you that all the wonderful looks you saw on the runways should inspire both your closets and your walls. 

Here are a few of our ideas for how to translate all those oh-so-fabulous trends into your home decor. 

The Trend: Back to Basics

Designers stuck with muted palettes like white, black, beige, and taupe. This clean and casual ensemble from Michael Kors turned our thoughts to our Clean Collection: a mix of modern, minimalist frames perfect for ensuring a sleek silhouette to mix and match with any accent.

Get the Look:  Select a collection of neutral pieces and pair them with our clean, sleek gallery frames. 

The Trend: Soft Fabrics

There was no shortage of thin lace, chiffon, and very thin cotton. Designs felt soft and natural to enhance and highlight the figure like we see in this airyRalph Lauren design. This aesthetic translates perfectly to float mounting.

Get the look: Select our Marin or Irvine Slim frame, and choose “Float Mounting” as your mat style. This style works especially well to highlight art with deckled edges of the paper, the artist’s signature in the very bottom right corner, or an unusual shape or dimension. 

The Trend: Shapely Silhouettes

Designers featured cuts that highlighted shape and form, like this feminine ensemble from Tory Burch which showcases the model’s curves with clean lines and a tight cut, accented by a wrapping feather design. 

Get the Look: Choose a bold frame like our Brentwood mirrored frame, and specify in the special instructions that you would like special mat proportions. Try grouping a set of three pieces together for a punchier statement.

The Trend: Chic and Classic

High waisted trousers and feminine blouses. Hallelujah. We couldn’t be more excited that designers have validated the classic closet staple for another season. This look from Derek Lam exudes chic simplicity. 

Get the Look: Go for one of our most versatile frames - Newport. This antiqued silver frame compliments your travel photos, wedding photos, and most precious art. You can’t go wrong with this one. 

The Trend: Fringe and Cutouts

Don’t worry. In the midst of all the classic silhouettes, soft fabrics, and beige tones there’s still a little fun to be had. Cutouts, fringe, and playful materials like the ones seen in this look from Altuzarra are all still very of the moment. 

Get this Look: Pair an adventurous frame like our tiger wood Jambi with a foil print on black. The combination is delightfully unexpected.
