Each year we delight in the unique color combinations and lively prints we’ve come to expect from Manuel Canovas. According to design director Ariane Dalle, the 2014 collection highlights two distinct themes: a global gypsy journey and the essence of French ‘art de vivre.’
In search of inspiration, Ariane and her team traveled to Lamu, Montauk, Tulum, Goa and Byron Bay where they discovered rare surviving documents and original art forms. Vivid cultural influences and unpredictable colors are brought to life in silks, wovens, sophisticated embroidered linens and ethnic prints, all embracing the authentic gypsy spirit.
The second theme is resolutely classic in style, reflecting the essence of French ’art de vivre’ with contemporary colors. Manuel Canovas has created a charming toile de Jouy fabric and wallpaper range derived from unique documents in the Canovas Archives. Striking toiles are printed using the finest screen-printing techniques that capture the intricate detail of elegant engravings depicting historic and decorative scenes. For the first time, three of the designs are printed on 100% linen with a special finish that preserves the patina of the original documents.
