DOMO recently hosted a cocktail evening to celebrate the launch of the Marjorelle Collection by Catherine Martin for Mokum at their flagship showroom in Sandringham.
The Marjorelle Collection is the result of a creative collaboration between Catherine Martin and Mokum, comprising an assorted collection of textiles, trimmings and wallpapers. The collection is inspired by Catherine’s recent foray into tropical flora and fauna whilst taking design influence from Orientalism and exotic faraway lands.
The evening was well attended by media, interior stylists and friends of DOMO, who were presented a unique insight into the collaborative process that was crucial in developing the Marjorelle collection. The presentation revealed how the collection references Jardin Majorelle, Yves Saint Laurent’s Moroccan retreat famed for its sophisticated and exotic interior design, brilliant blue exterior and magnificent gardens.
The Marjorelle collection also pays homage to Catherine’s French heritage and love affair with French culture, design and interior architecture. Guests were enchanted by the contrasting yet visually enticing combinations of textures and patterns, evoking the elegance of baroque with a modern touch.
The cocktail evening was an exciting celebration of the eclectic collection over champagne and canapes, making it a great success.
