Going Nautical – Thomas Paul
Born and raised in the Big Apple, Thomas Paul began his career in the fashion business in the mid 90’s working as an intern at DKNY. Paul then went on to specialise in neckwear and scarves whilst working as a colourist and designer for a silk mill, where he worked on collections for designers such as Oscar De la Renta, Bill Blass, Calvin Klein, and his original intern base DKNY.
This evolved into the creation of Thomas Paul’s own neckwear collection in the late 90’s called “Digities”. The collection and brand has expanded from there with the start of the thomaspaul pillow collection, launched in 2001. The idea of the pillows came about after Paul wanted to utilise the silk printing capabilities of the mill to be used on home accessories….. and still this idea expands with Paul wanting his products to cover every aspect of the home from the kitchen table, the bedroom, stationary and lamp shades….
With summer supposedly just around the corner for us in the southern hemisphere I thought I would give you a glimpse of some of Paul’s whimsical nautical designs…. which have that little bit of tongue in cheek humour that I love….if you like these then you may want to check out his other designs, and if you are in Australia or NZ you can purchase them at Gidd Agencies.
Well Nautical and water go hand in hand so why not start off here…. with a tall ship shower curtain to hide your rubber duck behind…
…and some matching towels to dry off from a long hard night at sea!!
And after a long day on the ocean waves you can curl up with Moby Dick or an Octopus and shells….. One of Paul’s signatures with his animal prints is that you can use them like a jigsaw puzzle to create the whole picture…. just like Moby Dick above….
… and when it gets a little bit wild out on them there seas….. you can throw on a throw….
And not to be left out, for the ships mate stuck in the galley, you can ensure your daily catch is served up with a little nautical class…..
… with tea towels above….. or placemats and anchor napkins below…
And a little something for you……
And for those who prefer to decorate themselves, Paul’s true roots are not forgotten with a range of scarves and shawls to match…
Well for now me hearty’s I will bid farewell….. on with the colourful journey….. but don’t forget to let me know what you think!
