Revman makes a splash with Dean Miller
Kids Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, February 16, 2004
NEW YORK — Until now, Revman International's new Dean Miller license has primarily consisted of print bedding. But today, the company is working to expand its surfer lifestyle look by emphasizing top-of-bed construction, while continuing to update and add to its print ensembles.
According to Revman's Diane Piemonte, vice president of creative services, the plan is to bring the surf lifestyle into the bedroom.
Some of the new non-print patterns include Point Break, High Tide, Surf Shack and Dean Miller Shirt Co.
Inspired by board shorts, Point Break will be made from pieced microfiber and offered in three color combinations. Color-blocked piecing with solids and prints creates a surfboard running up the center of the bed, while laced color-blocked shams continue the apparel detailing. High Tide features washed denim with alternate colored horizontal rows of grommetted twill tape applique with jute fringe. Surf Shack is a panel embroidered duvet set featuring multicolored embroidery on a stone chino ground. Dean Miller Shirt Co. is the first of several new pieced quilts that mix prints and yarn-dyes with denim.
