“It is a great testament to the longevity and beauty of Brunschwig fabrics that when I look through the archives, so many designs from decades past are still relevant. Brunschwig fabrics remain a symbol of absolute elegance and the iconic prints used throughout the years are always present, always Brunschwig, and still resonate today. Many of the classic Brunschwig patterns are go-tos in my own work,” said Smith.“My goal for Brunschwig is to marry its incredible archives with the talent of the brand’s artists, and recreate a new era of design inspiration based on the beauty of the past.”
