Tabula Rasa: Luxury Accessories for Frequent Travellers
Emily Diamandis – knitwear designer at US apparel line Rag & Bone – has just launched a luxury home and accessory brand called Tabula Rasa, designed for frequent travellers. The line consists of travel pillows, blankets, scarves and other plane-friendly objects, woven in Italian wool blends.
The debut collection juxtaposes punchy pops of citrus, berry and blue against a core palette of grey, white and cream. Diamandis’ influences range from New England fisherman knits to 60s geometric patterns and island foliage – the latter foreshadowing Stylus’ Tropicalia Interiors concept for Summer 2014. Customisation is also available; Tabula Rasa’s bespoke service allows clients to select the type of yarn and colours used in a design.
