New / Now: Design En Rogue: Architecture

Jesse Bratter

When we launched the first iteration of Design En Rogue, we set out to redefine the way we look at a fabric collection. Rather than be confined by seasonal expectations, we decided to go rogue and let unbridled creativity lead the way. This approach led us to photographer Joanna McClure who brought us storied fabrics with a fresh perspective.

In keeping with this theme, our newest iteration of Design En Rogue hones in on architecture, bringing together textiles that are just as intentional and material-first. This time, our artistic outlet focuses on varied palettes of statement embroideries, artsy prints, épinglé velvets, and nubby bouclés that draw inspiration from the creative rebellion of the Bauhaus movement.

Our winter offering is an exploration of color and form told through artistic shapes and architectural silhouettes.

“These are highly structured textiles with a feminine essence that strike a chord,” S. Harris Chief Brand Officer Jodi Finer said. “They’re movement-centric, statement-oriented, and evoke positivity. Inspired by the notion of moving forward through constant change as the only stabilizing force, we’re trying new things and testing our limits. As always, we’re bringing the past forward through partnering with multi-generational weavers, printers, and yarn suppliers, creating from a place of storied-yet-fresh energy.”










In this collection, you’ll find a pattern called Senecio—a fabric fashioned after Klee’s famous painting that celebrates cubism. But we also pay homage to American talents who pioneered their own forms of creative expression: namely, painter, photographer, and filmmaker Charles Sheeler, whose works commented on the post-Industrial revolution and gave rise to modernism in America. We also looked to the work of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, who designed buildings that harmonized with the land.

The Bauhaus was a place and method of teaching in pre-War Germany that intersected beauty with function, mass production with artistic vision, and a variety of disciplines from art to architecture, design and craft. Blurring the lines between these elements was considered avant-garde at the time, but the Bauhaus principles grew to become and have remained a guiding light for creatives everywhere. We can’t think of anything more rogue.





We’d love to hear from you—tag us on social to join the conversation. #sharris
