Trending: wearing brocade to holiday parties

December is the month full of parties: work parties, Christmas parties and the biggest bash of all – New Year’s Eve. It’s important to stand out – in the right way. Brocade is a lavish and holiday-worthy trend that will give your outfit the perfect amount of elegance.

Dolce & Gabbana’s Winter 2013 Collection was full of this chic look – inspired by Sicilian Baroque. KORHANI’s Bianka rug and gold frame bring the luxurious trend from the runway into your home.

Remember, keep it simple. Wear brocade on only one element of your ensemble. If your dress is full of gilded brocade, keep your shoes simple. Same goes with makeup. Make your eyes pop by adding gold highlights to a classic smoky eye. 

 

Beyond Venice

Venice is known for its masquerades, lavish costumes and gilded facades, but the mastery in ornament does not end within its canals. Burano, one of many small islands surrounding Venice has a unique and exquisit specialty of its own. Similar to Venice, it us made up of several canals that direct its tourists and few inhabitants. The island specializes in lace and has done so for hundreds of years.

The intricate lace patterns from Burano have influenced the world. The city, thought to be founded in the 6th century was visited by many famous scholars, including Leonardo da Vinci, who aided the popularity and spread of these stylistic details. KORHANI home’s Venice Carnival collection has designs inspired by such elaborate patterns.

All hand crafted, the city is the world’s finest producer of lace. Specializing in a craft for so many centuries has allowed time for its signature patterns to find themselves in our own current designs. KORHANI home has adopted some of these patterns by way of stylistic evolution!

The dynamic nature of the show enticed our loyal audience from past seasons but also turned the heads of industry critics and those that do not traditionally follow the scene.
