Artists were the inspiration behind Frette's Spring/Summer 2010 Collections. The beautiful collections are an homage to both artists and the places that inspired them. The Venice is influenced by American Impressionist, John Singer Sargent. In his watercolor sketches, Sargent managed to capture the grace and mystery of Venice and the shimmering colors of the water and skies surrounding the city influenced the color palette used by Frette's designers ranging from Verbena to Myrrh. Luxury bedcovers in rich metallic silks in lavender, silver and copper complete the sumptuous collection. The sensual works of symbolist Gustav Klimt served as the inspiration to the Vienna. Vienna features floral shapes of cascading wisteria as well as geometric renditions of rosette blooms. The resulting patterns reflect early 20th century art and architecture's transition to Art Nouveau from a more classicist past. The Aix collection evokes Henri Matisse. The colors reflect the richly hued landscape of the Provencal region.All are available in Frette stores and online. Prices start at $1,695 for a total set.
