HBFT Spring 2016 Collection by Mary Jo Miller
HBF Textiles Highlights Color, Texture, Yarn, and Hue in Spring 2016 Collection – Latest Introduction Shines Spotlight on Fabric’s Core Components, Inspired by Le Corbusier’s Vibrant LC Palette
Known for their artful and authentic approach to design, HBF Textiles is going back to the classics for its Spring 2016 Collection. HBF Textiles Vice President of Design Mary Jo Miller started with Le Corbusier’s infamous LC Palette of colors from the 1920s, and used these fresh shades as a catalyst for the collection. Playful textures such as nubby boucle and performance polyurethane complement the colors. This tactile series with strong performance attributes, such as bleach cleanable properties, finds a comfortable home in HBF Textiles’ classic offering, whether standing on its own or paired with other HBF Textiles favorites.
“The Spring 2016 collection looks at yarn, texture, and structure, and marries them with color in a fresh way,” explains Mary Jo Miller. “It was especially exciting to reference the LC Palette colors and see how something so classic can still be embodied by a line that is perfectly modern.”
The series includes five designs in an orchestration of colors that make up an impressive 50 SKUs. Featuring a lofty textural boucle, a supple performance-based coated fabric, a chenille etched angular design, a European pearl-coated leather, and a curvaceous script jacquard; all share a unifying color palette that highlights each piece’s unique textural interest.
Fabrics in the Spring 2016 Collection are:
Faux Real II: An indulgent coated fabric with an extended scope of colors stretching from mid tones to classic neutrals in a stepped range of values, Faux Real II expands the polyurethane suite from HBF Textiles.
