Premiere of the new collection of fabrics created by Lorenzo Castillo for Gaston y Daniela – Lorenzo Castillo volume IV - will take place on October 6 in the House of Ideas during Łódź Design Week.
Lorenzo Castillo on his collection:
“While working on my new collection, I envisioned lush rural areas. In Spain, fabrics used in the countryside are usually monochromatic and soft to the touch. Still, what I was searching for were interesting textures, neutral but vivid colours, and subtle ‘ton sur ton’ geometry. The result is a collection comprising cream white wools, different shades of powder blue, woven stripes and geometric patterns on cotton.
Spain has strong agrarian traditions: horse breeding and hunting. My goal was to create a collection inspired by all these ‘Quintas’, ‘Caserios’, ‘Cortijos’, which define traditional Spanish country houses. Since I cannot imagine a uniform countryside landscape, I decided to “mix” several patterns of different origin.
Thus, the presence of peonies on a Delphi vase printed on linen in the traditional British style, or black Japanese vases on jacquard patterns, rich and sophisticated, inspired by the goods traded by the Chinese along the Silk Road. The collection also includes Louis XVI-style floral prints on linen in a very unconventional colour palette. I always use velours in my collections – one of the designs was inspired by floral patterns from Venice and Turkey, like those to be found in the Doge’s Palace in Venice. Yet another velour, more modern in style, with a chequerboard pattern, evokes the noble decor from the mid 20th century in North America and France. Even though dedicated to the Spanish countryside, my collection is both sophisticated and timeless, and as such will match the styles of numerous interior design projects all over the world.”
Our sales representatives are already geared in two fabric catalogues as well as trimmings, wallpaper and faux leather swatches.
