An elegant, old-fashioned fabric makes a trendy new comeback.

What’s soft, and comforting and fabulous all over? If you haven’t already guessed it, velvet is back, and we could not be more excited! From the runway to your driveway and straight to the front door, velvet is popping up all over in 2019.

While you can expect the velvet trend to show up like your favourite foreign family member every few seasons, this year she comes bearing gifts: colour, colour, colour! What we find particularly captivating about this year’s variety of velvet is the array of colours we have to play with. While accent colours are often an ongoing trend, this season they lend the spotlight to accent velvet pieces!
