Preview Raf Simons and Kvadrat’s New Textile Collaboration

The second time Kvadrat gets a mention this week, here the Danish textile makers collaborate with Raf Simons on a line of textiles and home accessories. The talks of teaming up began during Simons’s preparation for Jil Sander Fall/Winter 2011, and the two have worked closely since then, designing and manufacturing the pieces which launched yesterday in London. Describing these heavyweight fabrics, seen as patches in his Fall/Winter 2014 collection, Raf comments “we are making fabrics that are like a blank canvas for designers, they are waiting for input from the furniture designers—we don’t control the design they will use the textiles for, so we try to leave it very open; these fabrics should be multifunctional.” Available in the Spring, take a look at our shots from the preview night in the gallery.
