The Grid collection transforms perpendicular and parallel lines into innovative textiles
wheeling, III. (August 2017)— Inspired by the De Stijl movement of the early 20th century, Brentano Design Director, Iris Wang has created Fall 2017’s GRID collection. Based upon the fundamental, linear principles of design, this strong and graphic assortment introduces 18 inspiring and versatile patterns and textures. Mod, without being modish, the GRID collection demonstrates a fresh and sophisticated approach to form and color. Carefully constructed and thoughtfully interpreted, Piet and Theo represent complimentary scales of the grid concept, providing the foundation for the rest of the collection. Pandora moves the classic chevron into firmly modern territory with its bold and rhythmic color ways and refined use of cut and loop pile velvet, further laying the groundwork for the striking and energetic patterns and colors displayed in Velocity and Cascade. These defining compositions are supported by an array of luxurious and subtle textures like Capri and Ray as well as understated but characterful drapery fabrics such as Illusion, Purity and Verity. In addition, three patterns in the Grid collection introduce Brentano’s new Tri-sistant finish. This is Brentano’s brand name, cross linked stain resistant treatment; comparable to other cross-linked finishes, Tri-sistant is chemically bonded to the fibers in the fabric thus producing a much longer lasting stain resistant finish. With many fabrics also highlighting industry leading performance properties and easy care features, the GRID collection can truly claim to be both beautiful and practical, proving once again Brentano represents the very best in modern, livable, luxury.
