Preview: Habitat S/S 2015 Lookbook

PARED DOWN GEOMETRICS: Geometric shapes form the architectural footprint for statement furniture. 

This season it is not just Habitat’s homewares that caught the attention of the media; their press campaign also gained column inches. The SS15 online preview, a first in the field of interiors, echoed the brand’s innovative style.

Habitat SS15 - Look Book-5

NEW NEUTRAL: Hand finished, matt and glazed earthenware finished in a neutral palette of calm off-whites and greys

As anticipated the new range hits all the right notes and is teeming with must-have products. Habitat has adopted a more hand rendered approach to design this season. With the trendsetting brand fully embracing the shift towards one off pieces the common practice of design stores displaying rows of identical products may well be over. Retail buyers traditionally demand carbon copy products; stock failing to conform to stringent production standards is rejected. Now these ‘imperfect’ items once discarded are coveted for their unique quality. Habitat’s range draws upon this individuality and the skills of artisans worldwide to capture this handmade spirit.
