Inspired by Suzanne Kasler

I had the opportunity to meet Suzanne Kasler at a book signing and opening of the new Lee Jofa showroom in Charlotte, NC.  Her line is updated and fresh.  She has taken classics in archival and brought them to the viewpoint of today.

She translated the archival designs of English prints, jacquard's, suzani's and florals with her use of  color and paired them with Armani like colors.

Complementing her bold and colorful prints are washed linens and crisp taffeta's that literally have a beautiful hand.  Her approach is to mix subtle neutrals with fresh colors.

 What I loved most about her collection is the ability to combine larger patterns with smaller patterns and solids, all complementing one another with her use of color. 

She was darling, every fabric "is one of my favorites" she said through her presentation.   You can see the enthusiasm in her face and hear it in her voice.  How could it not be beautiful.
