Hooray, our AW 16 collection has officially launched! We have been asked so many times to create a purely blue homewares collection and we thought yep you are right let's do it! Inspired by the timeless waters of the Mediterranean coastlines and European Summer nights this range pays homage to the stunning blue hues that only the Mediterranean delivers. After the rush and excitement of our Marigold collection we thought we have to include some golden copper shine to these stunning tones and so we did and the result is truly special. A range dedicated to easy living and modern lifestyles that require more than just simple white dinner and homeware collections that you see everywhere. Blue is timeless as is black so it made sense to bring blue dinnerware to life as only we know how and as we know you will like.
We have become quite well known for our Monochrome dinnerware, especially our beloved Alcazar collection, but this season we wanted to launch a dinnerware collection with difference that felt especially Christopher Vine. The Azure collection is a celebration of Mediterranean blues, so we curated hues that we felt symbolise those waters and would do justice to the name Azure. The dark and soft blue tones are well contrasted by copper accents and matching blue rims which we feel elevate this collection to another level. These dinnerware pieces were designed to reflect everyday use as they are cleverly dishwasher and microwave safe which makes life just a tad easier. The shapes are also designed to be as functional as they are stunning, with each piece carefully examined to make sure they fit the ethos of what we are trying to achieve with all our dinnerware and homewares collections.
When creating the Azure collection we payed close attention to the colours of the Med and experimented with a a lot different blues and golds before landing on the final pattern and colour way, which has a soft and dark tone, with a very cool feel and look. We then applied our concept to our curated collection of bowls, plates, mugs and jugs to see if our design worked as we need it to. Pleased with the look we knew it was time to make this concept a dignified dinnerware collection. The result is one of our favourite collections to date and we are so looking forward to styling these and using them to entertain over the next few months!
