Oscar de la Renta Debuts Home Fabric collection with Lee Jofa
Famed fashion designer Oscar de la Renta has collaborated with Lee Jofa on a line of interior fabrics. The collection is now available in Lee Jofa showrooms throughout North America. The fabrics exhibit the fine tailoring and incredible detail that is the Oscar de la Renta signature.
Founded in 1965, the Oscar de la Renta fashion house is renowned for its commitment to timeless elegance through bridal wear, accessories, and women’s ready to wear. In 2002, the Oscar de la Renta Home collection was developed around the concept of lifestyle, and Oscar’s deep appreciation and affection for the spaces in which he lives.
The fabric collection includes 25 designs in silk, linen, velvet and cotton, ranging from delicate floral embroidery and ethnic-inspired prints on linen to solid silks and velvets in bright, saturated hues.
Oscar de la Renta said, “Fabrics have always played an extraordinarily important part in my collections. I am very excited about this latest extension of Oscar de la Renta Home with Lee Jofa, a company that shares my commitment to craftsmanship and quality.”
The collection has the fashion community buzzing, and despite de la Renta’s declaration that “I would never try to dress a woman like a couch—or a couch like a woman,” many have eyed the silks and embroidered linen covetously. The line is an extension of the Oscar de la Renta lifestyle.
“We wanted to create a collection that reflected the sensibility of Oscar’s clothes,” said Miles Redd, Creative Director of Oscar de la Renta Home. “All of the things one loves about Oscar de la Renta: the color, the embroideries, the textures – each signature is translated with practicality for the home.” “Working with Oscar and Miles on this collection has been a delightful experience for the Lee Jofa Design Studio,” said Stephen Elrod, Creative Director for Lee Jofa. “Lee Jofa has a history of craftsmanship that goes back centuries, and the Oscar de la Renta brand truly upholds the level of quality and design that we adhere to through our fabrics.”
