Esteemed fashion designer Christian Siriano – who has dressed Michelle Obama, Kamala Harris, and Zendaya (to name but a few) – has announced his bridge into the interior design world this New York Fashion Week.
The Annapolis-born designer, who is a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, is collaborating with luxury kitchen and bathroom brand DXV – known for infusing beauty and creativity into luxury living.
Christian Siriano designed a limited-edition bathrobe and hand towel set that pays homage to 'the opulence and glamor' of the nostalgic 1920s – shown through the intricate geometric stitching and the gold and white coloring. Inevitably, the pieces are set to dominate towel trends and serve as the must-have that every fashion enthusiast didn't know they needed until now.
Following the announcement, Christian Siriano's models wore the robes backstage at his New York Fashion Week Fall-Winter 2023 show that took place on February 9th, and we're already looking at how to get our hands on these bathroom essentials – that Christian describes as 'wearable art.'
'It has been such a pleasure partnering with DXV, which I believe emphasizes the many parallels that can be drawn between fashion and home design as vehicles for self-expression,' Christian Siriano says.
'Personalizing clothing and accessories empowers people to reveal their authentic selves, which we also see play out when people curate their living spaces. As I was designing my own space in Easton, DXV's timeless Belshire bathroom collection inspired me to explore the boundaries of home and fashion to create luxurious, wearable art.'
The space in question (and the catalyst behind the collection) is the bathroom in the designers' 279-year-old home in Easton, Connecticut.
When designing a spa bathroom, Christian Siriano was struck by DXV’s 'elegant' pieces, with faceted edges, that celebrate the Art Deco movement from which they were modeled. Drawing inspiration from this collection, the designer's bathrobe, and hand towels boast a similar aesthetic synonymous with the 1920s.
'Our partnership with Christian demonstrates the many similarities between our seemingly disparate worlds of bathroom and kitchen design and luxury fashion, adds Jean-Jacques L’Henaff, the leader of LIXIL Global Design for the Americas.
'We’re incredibly impressed by Christian’s innate ability to capture and translate interior design concepts into gorgeous bathroom accessories. We can’t wait to showcase this exclusive collection at New York Fashion Week and celebrate the beauty of bridging two design worlds.'
If you're as keen as us to bring these pieces into your bathroom, you can find them in select DXV showrooms nationwide. DXV will also hold in-person events at top markets where the towels and robes will be gifted to customers while supplies last.
