Fashion Friday: Ahoy Mateys!

Ahoy Mateys! This week launched the opening of boating season with, what else, a very wet week. Neither Dawn or I know anyone who owns a boat, a sad predicament for our summer plans, but great company we would make if invited out on your sailing vessel!

The opening of boating season seems to segue nicely into this week's Get LiT posts. All week I have been posting about semaphores and their use in furniture and lighting, so why not finish off the week with a nautically inspired Fashion Friday?

D&G were swept up in waves of inspiration, when they designed their seafaring Spring line, which debuted at Milan's Fashion Week. From the striped bathing suits, sailor cut jeans, seaworthy sunglasses and you guessed it, semaphore scarves, the runway decks were in bristol fashion.

Our friends at Piano Nobile, always style relevant, have designed an entire line of lamps to go along with their nautical themed furniture. The lamp base is a welded steel pipe which is then powder-coated white, with custom options available. In collaboration with LiT, shades for these fine vessels are done in gray linen with a silk-screened white grid pattern.
Sure to look winning on your yacht, or if you're like us and don't own even a dinghy, don't feel bad, even moored in your living room, these lamps are still a ketch.
