Have always loved contrasts of
textures, whether in clothes or interiors,
where a wispy little edge of texture
can add just the perfect detail.
The Madame Rose collection,
by the young Pamela Usanto label,
plays with contrasts of fabric textures,
in delicate little details like lacy cuffs edging
chunky heavy silk.
It's a contrast of rough and smooth:
of dense fabric with delicate edges,
of pink suede heels with smooth floral satin,
of glossy dark timber veneer with matt white walls,
of coarse linen curtains with a silk brocade chaise,
which create this
of Texture and Detail.
