Maharam introduces Ottoman Stripe by Paul Smith, the latest textile in a comprehensive series of stripes designed by the British fashion designer in collaboration with the Maharam Design Studio. Ottoman Stripe brings new dimension to a familial yet unique language of stripes by punctuating a lustrous worsted wool satin ground with intervals of horizontal texture in the form of a tightly woven ottoman rib weave.
All five variations are a vehicle for Smith’s eclectic color combinations—in a vibrant spectrum ranging from primary to citrus to earth tones—with each one finding its own individual rhythm balanced between tradition and modernity in Paul Smith's signature "classics witha twist" style.
Among the most successful fashion designers in British history, Paul Smith combines a flair for eccentric detail with a dedication to the highest standards of craftsmanship. A decade-long association with Maharam has yielded a rich collaborative effort in textiles for seating and now wall application as part of Maharam Digital Projects. Smith’s next project with the Maharam Design Studio, Big Stripe, is a study in color-blocking at an exaggerated scale—with a repeat of over seven feet—to be released in 2013.
