Fashion designers turned decorators:Yes or No.
Diane von Furstenberg is designing 20 rooms in the Claridge Hotel in London. So far, photos of only one of the rooms has been released.
So far, many other fashion designers’ forages into interior design have been, well, less than stellar.
Lets take a look:
First, there is the Zac Posen debacle….
Next, Jean Paul Gaultier’s collaboration with Roche Bobois that culminated in this renovation of the Elle Decoration’s suite.
Then of course, there is the Maison Moschino.
And the Hotel Missoni.
What do you think of these crossovers? DVF’s is by far the best, although the last two hotels do amuse me and are at least whimsical and fun.
Somehow, I think Kelly Wearstler’s accessory line will be much easier on the eyes.
Although, I didnt particularly enjoy Jonathan Adler’s collection for 7 for all Mankind.
So, what do you think? Stick to what you know (as Raina put it so eloquently), or does good taste translate? Who would you like to see crossover?
