Le Monde Beryl and Martina Mondadori Sartogo, founder of peerless interiors magazine Cabana, present four pairs of slippers in original printed cotton from the famed Venetian textile-makers, Fortuny. Taking inspiration from celebrated twentieth-century Italian interior designer Renzo Mongiardino and his affinity for richly layered and delicately hand-painted textiles, the collaboration applies patterned Fortuny fabrics, each in a shade of lemon yellow, brick red or deep mulberry onto the classic Le Monde Beryl Venetian slipper and mule.
a history of Venetian style
Established in 1907 by the artist, designer and inventor Mariano Fortuny, and still based on the Venetian island of Giudecca, Fortuny is renowned for printed fabrics using time-honoured, closely kept techniques in colours and styles that evoke the romance of Venice’s past and the influence of the Silk Road. The Cabana x Le Monde Beryl collaboration with Fortuny is a marriage of parallel sensibilities that channels the magpie spirit of Renzo Mongiardino, layering past and present, clothing and interiors.
