Runway to (Stationery) Wardrobe

The looks flouncing down New York City runways this past week have been a truly inspiring parade. Translating your favorite trends for Spring 2013 into your papers is a fantastic way to sustain your personal style from closet to desk.

There are myriad ways to tailor your stationery wardrobe to be uniquely yours. Here are a few examples of the possibilities for customization using the springboard of some of my favorites pieces from New York’s Fashion Week. 

Carolina Herrera shows us how to keep geometry spontaneous. Bordering just one side of a card is a sharp unconventional way to incorporate an accent color. 

The tight patterns on the Hermes runway make a subtle and textural envelope lining. Our gray paper and slender card sizing keep it cool and masculine.

The bold black contours in this look by Rodarte were too reminiscent of an envelope’s shape for me to resist. Painting the edges of a gift enclosure envelope can achieve this dramatic affect, and the soft tissue lining provides appealing contrast.

To discuss all the ways you can customize your stationery wardrobe, contact one of our Correspondence Curators at!

Peruse to take a look back at all of the splendor of last week’s fashion fair.

Mollie Little,
