Just in time for summer, designer Brook Perdigon has launched Outbounds, her first collection of performance wovens, made of 100%-solution-dyed acrylic.
“Because so many outdoor fabrics channel the Slim Aarons vibe, I wanted this collection to have more of a California feel,” she says. “The palette allows for an easy flow from indoor to outdoor spaces.” The line comprises three of Perdigon’s most popular patterns (Toile de Terrain, Roma and Framework) in colorways with organic names like Dune, Citrine and Moss.
“Designers had been requesting performance fabrics and, after years of working in hand-screen printing and digital production, I wanted to try a new manufacturing medium,” she shares. When friends purchased a mill just minutes from her Atwater Village work space, the idea became irresistible. The resulting fabrics are as soft as they are sturdy and can be purchased directly from the studio.
