Lori Weitzner Celebrates the Insect World in New Textile Collection for Samuel & Sons
Textile designer Lori Weitzner’s new Metamorphosis collection for the New York–based passementerie house, Samuel & Sons, celebrates the insect world. “Nature is always a source of inspiration,” she explains. “But this collection is specifically about all the living creatures that are so often hidden from our sight. With their beautiful colors, shapes, and patterns, butterflies, dragonflies, bumblebees, moths, and even the patterns of migration they take, all served as muse.” The entomologically inspired portfolio comprises Chrysalis, a cord with tape, along with 11 embellished borders including the appliquéd Honeycomb; the embroidered Queen Bee and Colony; the pleated Monarch; and the beaded Nymph and Ensemble—the last depicting a glittering menagerie of bugs, beetles, and other tiny critters that Weitzner admits is her favorite design: “We named it Ensemble because we felt like all these creatures were gathering for a party.” Available in a dazzling array of colors, the delightful trims will have you looking at our smallest fellow beings in a gorgeous new light.
