PinExt Pattern Report | Not your grandmas throw...

 

Did you know that the term “afghan” actually comes from the fact that the style of throw blanket originated in Afghanistan? I didn’t. Often knitted or crocheted in geometric shapes, the trend became a household item in the 60s-70s and still holds true for the retro collector. I love Topshop’s simple interpretation of the trend in a shift dress. Layer it over your bathing suit for summer and jeans and a button up for fall!

It’s not just fashion that’s on Henrik Vibskov’s mind these days. Although the Paris menswear shows are coming up, Vibskov is busily juggling an exhibit at the Cologne art gallery, Ruttkowski;68, working on developing a fragrance, as well as submitting a proposal for a collaboration on the restaging of Björk‘s Medúlla albumYou could say he has a full plate, but Vibskov thrives on the variation. For his show running through the end of July, he pulls inspiration from his travels to Miami and Mexico, incorporating textile and woodblock techniques from these regions. View more of his work here.

PinExt Interiors | Minimalist

A stark palette of grey and white is warmed by primary color accents in this office design by Studio Swine. The use of white peg board for the main wall is not only functional, but also offers the comfort of a repeat-dot pattern. With additions such as the roughly hewn wood and red minimalist shelves, the design offers the perfect balance of visual interest and space for creativity.

Print jumps off the 2 dimensional surface for this resort 2015 trend. Flowers in all shapes and sizes look bold on shorts and bright in poppy red and grass green. It may not be very functional, but you can’t look at this trend and not feel joy (and who needs functional anyways?). With 3D printing on the rise, it’s only a matter of time before we are all printing our own flower adornments!

Bold and graphic, the prints of clothing label, Dusen Dusen, are drawn from disparate points each season to create a unified palette of visual interest. Ellen Van Dusen, the designer, was raised by architect parents and remembers as a child “sponge painting her own clothes.” After graduating from Tufts University, Dusen founded her line of simple basics which resonate with the vintage lovers out there. Pick up a piece here.

Mara Hoffman | Anthropologie

Lost in a sea of dreamy bohemian prints, Mara Hoffman’s home collection for Anthropologie includes detailed bedding, throw rugs, stunning floor pillows and more. The amazing pyramid shaped candle is decorated with an “all-seeing eye” motif that appears in many of her designs and hints of mysterious far away places. Creating an overall effect that is shabby-chic-meets-intricate-elegance, Hoffman’s bright items are perfect for adding a pop of color to any space.
