This week Oliver Bonas showed both their new interior and clothing ranges for this autumn and winter to the press and influencers.
This is a company that goes from strength to strength in both their home-ware and fashion collections. They know the look their core customer wants, that being a mixture of sophisticated, modern with some humour thrown into the mix.
There are two main themes running through both the home and fashion collections. The main theme is Enlightenment and Orient Express is the capsule collection. This could also be described as Art Deco or Luxe.
There is a great deal of glass , mirrors and glamour. Oliver Bonas produce cocktail ware, including drinks trolley’s which, a little bird tells me, always sell out. Talking of cocktails there are drink mixing kits, and gorgeous glasses, lovely mirrors, rattan furniture, picture frames and planters.
Velvet chairs and fringing on lamp shades carry on from this season but with new twists of colour, shapes and length of fringing.
Part of Enlightenment is Sanctuary. This includes mosaic, ironwork ,ceramics and plants, and baskets. Oliver Bonas now sell real and faux plants in their larger stores.
There is a vast array of baskets, pouffés, throws and cushions. The pouffe’s are particularly original.
Another best selling line for Oliver Bonas are items decorated with letters of the alphabet, and also the letters themselves.
Always great with decorative patterns, from August the company will be selling some very nice bags and cushions with lovely surface designs.
New this season, are Oliver Bonas own brand of decorative filament light bulb.
Last of all I must mention the very the simple ,but lovely art works in the form of textural wall hangings and bright prints.
