As I write this, the snow is falling in big wet clumps. This, after a week of spring fever? It seems cruel. At least it did, until I opened my folder containing the latest addition to the Designers Guild collection at Bemz. Seven sophisticated, delectably luxurious linen fabrics in summer cool and exquisitely timeless checks and stripes from the extremely popular Brera range at Designers Guild.
The colours are perfect for spring 2012 with shades of blue and grey combined with crisp white, sooty black and natural linen. The updated stripe and check designs are right on trend and exude Scandinavian simplicity.
Made from 100% yarn-dyed linen, these fabrics are the ideal addition to the exclusive Bemz Loose Fit collections and will only be available in either Country or Urban styles, both unique to Bemz. The fine, pre-washed linen combined with the design of the special Loose Fit covers results in a sophisticated and dapper look with a less formal feel.
Despite its exclusive finish, these soft linen fabrics are durable and machine-washable at 40ºC.
I don't want to take Mother Nature head-on, I have too much respect for her! But there's no denying spring and summer with these fabrics. Indoors anyway... If you're longing for a bit of of seaside chic, read more about this collection.
