Purple Magazine
— F/W 2006 issue 6



COLLECTION PIECES by designers like Martin Margiela, Nicolas Ghesquière and Hussein Chalayan, among others, have been inspired this season by pre-modern furniture, home-accessories, and interior design. Stylist Jane How pushes the idea way beyond Versace baroque home decoration: a lion’s head door-knocker bikini top, dresses made from upholstery, tapestry, chandelier baubles, wall paper, and the photographs of a Tudor interior printed on a dress. It’s as if we’re carrying our secret hotel rooms, like memento mori, in the heart of our clothing.
