Peter Som has officially joined of the ranks of the design collective who have lent their prowess to bedding. Tuesday night, the designer debuted his first ever bedding collection with Italian linen manufacturer Sferra. The collection features four styles that rework prints from Som's past runway collections. The florals in The Newport, done in both avocado and porcelain blue, reference his spring 2007 Marie Antoinette-inspired show. The light gray Damask print comes from the same collection, and Som credits its inspiration from a drawing room in Versailles. Also, the more artful florals in the Chrysanthemum set, are an homage from his spring 2010 lineup. And the latticelike calligraphy patterns, which read “PS I Love You”, reference a personal part of Som—the monogram is an old nickname of the designer's from his college days in Connecticut.
On the turn to bedding, Som noted, “It’s all becoming one thing, from the clothes you wear to the bag you carry to what you sleep on. It’s really about how you live your life.” The Peter Som collection for Sferra, priced from $30 for a sham to $415 for a duvet cover, will make its retail debut in March.
