We love a trip to the Design District — and to check out haute couture fabric samples? Even better.
A few weeks ago Jim Williamson emailed me heralding the arrival of House of Hurel at ID Collection, and he mentioned the brand’s lace and velvet textiles had been used by designers like Jason Wu, Christian Dior, and Givenchy. Obviously, I drove on over to ogle the samples for myself.
If you’re wondering if you’ve seen the work of House of Hurel before, think back to FLOTUS Michelle Obama’s second inaugural dress.
While this is Hurel’s first foray into interiors, they’ve been making luxurious textiles for haute couture designers since 1879. Everything in their collection is made by hand in Paris, and ID Collection is the first showroom in Texas to represent the line.
ID Collection is currently carrying 37 different Hurel textiles, which include traditional lace (which can be used sheer or personalized on different grounds), some amazingly soft velvets (pictured above), and different embroidered fabrics.
