‘Saverne’ fabric by Manuel Canovas

Manuel Canovas’ new ‘Saverne’ fabric is has an iridescent finish that has parallels with what’s hitting the catwalks, and while the pastels shown here are very serene, it also comes in neon brights such as apricot and bubblegum pink that are equally fashion-forward. They’re available from Colefax and Fowler, which, incidentally, has another reason to be proud quite apart from its sumptuous new collections: showroom manager Claire Fyfe is currently appearing on your small screens as a Masterchef contestant, and doing brilliantly. A master of design, and a master of the kitchen, too.
