Frette unveils holiday goodies
July 30, 2008,
New York – Frette is preparing its fourth limited edition luxury bedding collection along with its holiday gift collection.
The collection will consist of just 64 numbered sets in an ebony box containing a duvet, two Euro shams and two pillows. Retail price is $6,000.
The red and black duvet is a framed pattern in silk ‘boutis’ woven on a three-and-a-half meter, purpose-built, artisanal loom. After weaving, the fabric is water-treated to create a unique finish that gives the framed tapestry-style design a hand-painted look.
Accessories include Regal throws and cushions in long-hair black mink; Egyptian cotton sateen Glow bedsets in lacquer red with burgundy borders and embroidered Frette crests; Embrace towels in monogrammed lacquer red or burgundy terry; black silk Belle dresses with a torsadé over a bare back; and black mink and silk Eleonora open slippers.
The collection goes on display in Frette windows worldwide in November.
Frette is also launching a holiday collection consisting of blankets and throw pillows, loungewear, robes, scarves, ponchos, fragrance, silk slippers, cashmere socks and a silk and cashmere eye mask.
A line of custom blankets and throw pillows are available in 35 colors and either cable or geometic knit. Oban blankets and throws are 100% merino and retail at $1,200 for blankets and $595 for throws. The cashmere Caprice blanket retails at $1,400.
