Iconic French fashion designer Sonia Rykiel will be debuting a home collection of "fabrics, cushions, carpets and throws featuring floral patterns and [...] signature multicolored stripes." The designs, described as "flirty Left Bank style," will compliment Rykiel's existing bed and bath line, below.
I was all on board for this new collection until I read about the "humorous touches" including "black velvet cushions with rhinestones spelling out 'Blonde,' 'Brune' and 'Rousse' ('Blonde,' 'Brunette' and 'Redhead')." Bedazzling in French is just as merde as bedazzling in English. Maybe more so.
Stark Carpet will distribute the collection Stateside beginning in September. That's an odd pairing, don't you think?
