Monthly Musings: Renaissance Revival

When you think Renaissance, you immediately think of gaudy and whimsical gowns, annoying and over-served jokers gnawing on turkey legs and drinking out of goblets full of {strange} brew.  However, this fall, the runways are taking a more decadent, classy and non-literal approach that we are calling “Renaissance Revival.” Inspired by rich patterns, fabrics and bejeweled works of art from the past, this season, we can’t help but feast our eyes upon these amazing fashions and interiors. This year, go baroque and become the show stopper of your friends by incorporating opulent velvet, embellishments, prints and medallion patterns into your wardrobe like this spectacular baroque skirt and killer tapestry-inspired pumps.

But for all you Martha Stewarts out there, don’t worry- this trend can also be translated into your home and through your fabulous parties. We love this tablescape with bold colored linens and glassware completed with crystalized fruit-tied place cards. You can also achieve this look by adding extra texture and richness to your floral arrangements and invitations.

There are plenty of eras that should stay in the past, but if you ask us, Renaissance is not one of them. Join us in the revival by integrating this perfect fall trend into all aspects of your lifestyle.
