That's one way to get your attention! And it's not really a lie...Donghia's Fall collection is called Moondance, a reference to the singer's song. In fact the entire new collection, 16 designs in all, references Van Morrison's songs and even his birthplace (Belfast, a voided velvet design inspired by mensware pictured above, available in five colors). Chuck Chewning, creative director of Donghia, was kind enough to show us the new collection, which will be in the showrooms any day now.
The color palette of Gloria references back to Donghia's Spring/Summer collection (thankfully we don't have to overhaul our pastel color scheme just yet!). The inspiration for the design came from a painting on wax paper. The warp print with an ikat effect casts an ethereal mood, as drapery or decorative touches.
Our personal favorite, Moondance, has a woven almost-ikat pattern in a polyester-silk that evokes the glowing moon at night. Can't you just hear the song playing in the background? It comes in eight colorways, and wouldn't it make a terrific wallcovering?
The graphic Natalia, a voided velvet, was inspired by tie in the Donghia archives - our guess is classic 70s! It comes in three colorways.
Think tweed is too stuffy? Channel the vibe with one of these five colors. Woven wool is washed to removed some of the metallic foil finish of Wild Night, leaving a large scale plaid design that we'd love to use on a sofa.
Stop by and see about incorporating a little Van into your next interior, at the DCH (Suite 1000), DCOTA (Suite C250), PDC (Suite G196), and DDB (Suite 700).
