Doris Leslie Blau shares “Wear Our Rugs” campaign featuring looks from New York Fashion Week Spring 2014.
The breezy florals and punchy palette of Rebecca Minkoff’s halter dress are echoed in the refined camel-and-orange hues of this late 19th-century Samarkand (Khotan) carpet.
The lush abstraction that makes up the digital print on this sheath dress by Emerson meets its match in this circa-1920 Arts and Crafts rug by English architect and designer C.F.A. Voysey.
The Arne Jacobsen influences that Lela Rose pulled into her collection, including this slim and simple dress, are evoked in the modern lines of this circa-1930 Art Deco rug, which would look seamless in a contemporary setting.
