Next Creations to Unveil Charisma Line
Carole Sloan -- Home Textiles Today, October 12, 2010
3NEW YORK - While the launch of its new Charisma licensed program for bed and bath will probably be center stage for Next Creations/ Raymond Waites Designs, the company has revamped its own line with a simpler, less formal look for bedding.
Hand cut work, appliqués used in random effects or as borders, and pleating are seen throughout the collection.
In its newly acquired Charisma4 bed and bath collection, there is one new bed, Celeste, and three carryover beds - Marquette, Bianca and Floreen. Celeste features a subtle cutout vine-like eyelet design in blue on white cotton with duvet covers at $249.99 queen.
Three carry-over sheets are a 400-count twill solid and the classic Charisma dot, a 500-count percale easy care, and a 600-count sateen. Two towels are Classic, an Egyptian cotton, and Supreme Easy Dry, a Pima cotton.
The Charisma collection will be shown by appointment only at 7 West 34 in the concourse section, rather than at the company's showroom at 230 Fifth Avenue.
Claire offers a fresh, pretty, classic look with a contemporary flavor using wide ruching panels and lots of open embroidery effects at $249 for a four-piece queen set.
