Kenneth Cole is moving into interiors with a new home decor collection.

The fashion and lifestyle brand will unveil the new line at the 2019 New York Home Fashions Market week this September, as part of a partnership with the conglomerate Revman International that will last through 2023.

The series, which will launch in Spring 2020, will span bedding, bath, and beach collections in the label’s signature modern style.

A ‘Kenneth Cole New York’ collection will focus on contemporary pieces with subtle details, such as washed sateen and twill fabrics layered with cotton velvet, or suede and chunky knits.

Meanwhile, a ‘Reaction Kenneth Cole’ line will offer sporty, colourful prints and patterns, incorporating innovative fabrics.

“I have always admired the company’s socially conscious stance as well as Kenneth’s philosophy of designing products that make the customer look good and feel good,” said Rich Roman, president and CEO of Revman International, in a statement. “We hope to do the same, ensuring our Kenneth Cole home products look and feel good.”

Kenneth Cole is not the only major fashion force currently vying for a space in the home decor industry – earlier this month, it was reported that fashion designer and super stylist Rachel Zoe has teamed up with Pottery Barn Kids and Pottery Barn Teen on a line of interior accessories set to launch in September.
