Earlier, we showed Cloud9′s summer 2013 collections, now here’s what’s coming in fall and winter, including collections several new designers. Dem Bones is Sarah Watson’s delightful take on human anatomy. “People are really excited about this because they can make something that teenage boys won’t be embarrassed by,” says Michelle. Accordingly, Dem Bones ties made an appearance in the Cloud9 booth. The fabric will be available in September.
A line named with tongue firmly in cheek is Michelle Engel Bencsko’s Mad Mend. It’s an homage to textiles, replete with pins, thimbles, scissors, buttons and cross-stitched letters spelling out Make Do.
Leslie Shewring’s Palos Verdes, delicately colored florals and geometrics in voile, evokes the beaches she roamed while living in Southern California. They’ll be available in October.
If you’ve got children, or grandchildren, or nieces and nephews, or any young friends, then you’re familiar with Margaret Wise Brown’s iconic children’s book, Goodnight Moon. Available in December, these designs stick close to the book’s original style.
And finally, Ed Emberley is back with Picture Pie. The line features flowers, foxes, fish, and Scribbles large and small, and will be available in January, 2014.
