In the serene setting of The Hempel Hotel in Bayswater’s leafy London, Calvin Klein Home unveiled its beautiful new range of bed linen this morning. Calvin Klein’s creative director Amy Mellen flew over from New York to launch the collection, which features earthy, graphic designs with classic silhouettes embellished with detailed prints and weaves. She describes it as ‘a cohesive assortment of organic forms complemented by a unique artistry.’
Calvin Klein’s new Smoke Flower bed linen (pictured above) is a warm, deep floral print with blossoms in hues of peacock blue and mulberry, diffused on an ashen-coloured base. A classic chenille coverlet lends both depth and texture to the flowery theme. I’ve been a fan of Calvin Klein’s bed linen ever since the Bamboo Flowers collection was made famous on Sex and the City when it was featured on Carrie’s bed (I can be quite simple), so it’s a delight to see a similar clean and sophisticated palette used in Smoke Flower.
Calvin Klein’s new Tortoise and Tanzania bed linen designs are equally good looking and tactile. Inspired by the subtle colours and forms found in nature and woven in muted grey tones, Tortoise bed linen (below) features hints of metallic threads in the coverlet and a sheen-like finish on the decorative pillows accent the matte shades of grey.
Tanzania (below) features a colour-washed ground that provides a base for abstracted linear strokes in mink and sand tones. Painted Buds sheeting with splatters of desert colours completes the earthy scheme. The range is expected in stores around September time. In the words of Carrie Bradshaw, I couldn’t help but…wait!
