The Botanic Look: Bespoke Projects Inspiring The 104 Collection
he 104 Collection is now seeing the light of day with a number of new clients having recently launched with Mayfair legends The Beaumont and The Ritz as well as Macallan’s new visitor experience centre, Sotheby’s and the Shard Quarter’s latest development - Shard Place.
Brands like the above, along with other exciting projects coming on stream, have chosen the collection as it can be produced in 3 months (twice the usual pace of our bespoke projects) and to a smarter cost. A comprehensive range that divides into 47 formal and casual designs applicable for most luxury hospitality settings, catering for a plethora of styles and locations.In this latest blog we focus on the ‘Botanic’ look conceived for the 104 Collection Look Book.
The team came up with 6 different looks to present and inspire clients, who could consider the range. Each given their own name and visual reference, these are: Opulence, Resort, Country Retreat, Parlour, Botanic & Heritage.
The ‘Botanic’ look draws on Studio 104’s experience with locations that evoke brasserie-style, balancing smart and casual with a touch of chic. Each design, colour and fabric is chosen for this look is intended to complement these desirable places and blend in seamlessly.
Over the years Studio 104 has had the privilege to work with locations that exemplify ‘Botanic’ in style, from the historic Piccadilly store, Fortnum & Mason, to legendary landmark hotels, like The Dorchester. Here are select examples of our bespoke projects that have informed the ‘Botanic' concept:
