The Carpe Diem collection
The digital age has enabled near instantaneous exchange of information and ideas, exponentially increasing the pace of our lives. In this frenetic age, it’s easy to be caught up in this deluge of activity, forgetting that, in the words of Benjamin Franklin, “One today is worth two tomorrows.”
So, seize the day. Be in the moment – whether it’s a simple whirl on an amusement park ride or experiencing the captivating allure of a different culture. Drink in the vivacious colors of the Carpe Diem collection, its intermingling hints of sheen and texture promising new revelations.
Inspired by the famous Coney Island landmark, Wonder Wheel is a textural geometric Carnivale of fi ne bouclé, which falls on a subtle pinstripe ground. The motif mirrors the spokes of the wheel, while the glistening lines resemble the New York neighborhood’s magical night skyline.
Wonder Wheel is available in 11 colors: Rice, Cumin, Adobe, Mambo, Dusk, Wasabi, Pesto, Paradise, Gunmetal, Cocoa and Iron.
Popularized by a New Orleans R&B giant, the word Bonnaroo translates to “a really good time.” Bonnaroo is a lively, colorful stripe with a rhythmic spirit. Hues mix and mingle, resulting in visual harmony.
Bonnaroo is available in 11 colors: Oyster, Desert, Sunset, Mineral, Woodberry, Meadow, Spa, Tropic, Midnight, Blue Ridge and Strata.
Even though this pattern is just a texture, it’s no wallflower. Karaoke proves it can take center stage with a bold attitude true to every
Karaoke star. The duet of chunky recycled bouclé and variegated shine makes this fabric worthy of a standing ovation.
Karaoke is available in 14 colors: Rice, Cumin, Red Hot, Copper, Passion Fruit, Plum, Dusk, Avocado, Pesto, Aegean, Cosmic, Cocoa,
Iron and Onyx.
Stripes of color parade through undulating intersecting lines – just as thousands of revelers stream through Rio’s streets during Carnivale.
Carnivale is available in 12 colors, Mineral, Kumquat, Tangelo, Mambo, Dusk, Avocado, Cypress, Paradise, Midnight, Latte, Cocoa and Onyx.
Much like the iconic scooter with its sleek lines and fun colors, the Vespa pattern has movement and motion. The sheen of the rayon slub yarn
provides this playful fabric with personality.
Vespa is available in 15 colors: Rice, Nugget, Copper, Mambo, Zest, Parakeet, Herb, Linen Mist, Sea, Paradise, Cosmic, Smokey Topaz, Cocoa, Pumice and Onyx.
