What do Katie Price, Twiggy and Kylie Minogue all have in common? No, it’s not singing (!), they have all created a collection of bed linen, but whilst Ms Price and Twiggy have designed a rather ‘prettified’ range, Kylie has gone for pure, unadulterated luxury. Think of her Showgirl Tour and you get the picture, sumptuous fabrics, with luxurious detailing of lace, embroidery and lace, all crafted in an elegant and glamorous style.
The Kylie at Home range is a brand new collection that features not only bed linen, but home accessories as well, and all include more than a touch of sophistication, that we are typically used to seeing Kylie wearing on stage, rather than in the home.
Not that we are complaining, because if you want your bed room to resemble a luxurious boudoir, complete with opulent textures, including the most exquisite silky organza, with inlays of iridescent beads and sparkling sequins, then this is definitely the range for you. The collection can only be described as truly lavish and indulgent and we have to say, we are very impressed.
The singing sensation collaborated with the esteemed soft furnishings group, Ashley Wilde Group, who have an in-house, state-of-the-art design studio. The brand are so highly regarded within the industry that Kylie is not the first celebrity name they have been associated with. Other collaborations include Reger, Zandra Rhodes, Kirstie Allsopp, Elizabeth Hurley, Hello Kitty, Beano, American Freshman and Roald Dahl.
And although Kylie has had her own collection of bed linen and cushions since 2008, she says that this particular collection was definitely inspired by the opulent stage costumes she wore recently.
Here are our favorites amongst the collection:
I love this set, it is subtle but fun and quirky, yet still retains an air of sophistication, clever Kylie! There are sequins that make up the leopard print in inlays on the gorgeous soft satin, This is replicated in the cushions and quilted runner. Gorgeous!
A serious stylish statement here with a twist of traditional lace, mixed up with a modern print, all beautifully fused together using the most opulent fabrics, in a dark and elegant hue that compliments the whole design.
This is a complete contrast to the above set, a subtle coloring of champagne, featuring panels of ruffles that add to the texture and luxury of the set, the soft velvet fabric completes the sumptuous look with a gorgeous quilted satin detail.
