Quite simply chic

Lilica(Design : Lilica)
Whether deceptively obvious or in narrative configurations, simplicity is emerging as a new standard of elegance. The patterns from katrien Soeffers (Designs, 5V74), combine abstracts and plant illustrations for a fresh and multi-coloured effect, while those by Marie Wagner (Designs, 5U87) , draw on paper cut-outs for motifs favouring pastel tones and elegant lines. Paris design studio Lilica(Designs, 5U89) plays with silhouettes and multiplied effects for its realistic and highly graphic visual illusions. Simplified patterns go naturally hand in hand with updated colour palettes: for example, patterns are two-toned at Dutel( Fabrics, 5G4-5H3), with yarn-dyed figureds and narrative jacquards creating a fascinating tension between line and colour. Simple, pared-down, stylish: in a word, chic.
