Sartorial Style

Holland & Sherry Carnaby fabrics, wallpapers and rugs

Holland & Sherry often taps into its sartorial roots for its collections – the brand has been been the supplier of luxury cloth to the tailoring industry since 1836, a side of the business that is still based on Savile Row – but its latest fabrics, wallcoverings and rugs look just a few hundred yards further for inspiration.

Carnaby draws on the vibrant cultural explosion of 1960s London that had its beating heart on Carnaby Street: ‘West End’ is a heavy wool flannel with an oversized plaid motif that reflects the exuberance of the fashion of the age; ‘Lady Jane’ is a wool bouclé with a subtle stripe; and ‘Tempo’ is a chunky cotton corduroy in a rainbow of colours including citron, olive green and crocus (a dusty lavender). Holland & Sherry has its own mill in Chile, where its ‘vertical manufacturing’ capabilities (where fabrics can be spun, dyed, woven and finished all in one place) mean that custom options are readily accommodated.

The fabrics are complemented by plain merino wool rugs, made in India; digitally printed wallcoverings in sartorial checks; and a collection of leathers.
