Fortuny announces its collaboration with Venetian Heritage creating a collection inspired by the Gesuiti Church in Venice, known for its elaborate marble, sculpted and inlaid to look like draped fabric. The collection, titled Sectile 1729, draws inspiration from the “fabric” patterns. These 6 newly designed pat- terns will be released as part of the W/S 2016 collection in January at Paris Deco Off.
“We are thrilled to work with Venetian Heritage towards our mutual interest of pre-serving Venice and our connection to Italy,” says Mickey Riad. Fortuny’s take on the patterns from the church are both palatial and modern with unique twists like fields of wavy lines that spring the pattern into 3D and reflect the curvature of the marble.
10% of sales of the collection will be donated to the Venetian Heritage for the restoration of the Gesuiti Church. Read more about the Sectile 1929 Collection.
