Christian Lacroix amalgamated base blacks with riotous metallic toned embroidery in his Collection to arrive at magnificent panache. Back in 1998, Ross Lovegrove designed the Landscape Dining Set for Frighetto with the limited edition glazed in metallic leaf with black “border like” dining chairs, while Brianform in the Monte Nappoleone Collection upholstered the super popular and ultra modern Tiffany Sofa in textured metallic colored leather.
Givenchy’sCollection featured Middle Eastern inspired garments. A similar inspiration was observed back in 2005 when Marcel Wonders fashioned the Diary Sofa for Moooi which debuted in the mode scarlet fabric upholstery with social trim. In 2008, Enrico Fratesi added Luisa Table to the creation line up of the Nordic manufacturer Softline.
