ATELIER COLLECTION BY FIL DOUX TEXTILES CAPTURES POSSIBILITIES FOUND IN AN ARTIST’S STUDIO
| New York, NY - March 13, 2019 | For the Atelier Collection, Fil Doux Textiles was inspired, like a painter, by a blank canvas; a clean slate one day, then layered with inspiration the next. Each of the seven designs is a thought turned into a masterpiece, for a collection that, much like an artist’s journey, celebrates the beauty of process.
Brushstroke is an ode to great pointillist artists of the past, like Seurat and Signac, and uses soulful colors layered with painterly brushstrokes. Free Form is woven to look like a free-hand sketch with unrestricted, artistic gusto, while Leaf Press balances delicate watercolor branches adorned with almond shaped leaves, inspired by leaf and flower pressing techniques used by botanists and artists alike to document and preserve specimens of beauty and intrigue. Glazed Stripe has large bands of color that join together to create a pottery look, and Scallop is a digital print reminiscent of a fanciful seashell or decadent marbled paper. Antico, or "ancient style" in Italian, gives a nod to the past while remaining fresh and luxe. Finally, Watercolor features inky ribbons of color hand painted on a modest woven backdrop, allowing for a perfect digital print stripe.
