Lara Bohinc launches first ever range of homeware

Turning Leaf, the Californian wine brand, has appointed Lara Bohinc as its second ‘Designer in Residence’ for Autumn/Winter 2010. The collaboration will see the jewellery designer create her first ever range of homeware and a limited edition bottle. This follows on from the collaboration for Spring/Summer with hot design duo, Basso & Brooke. The first product to launch from the collaboration is the limited edition bottle (pictured above). Inspired by the changing seasons and Turning Leaf wines, Lara has blended her signature use of metalwork with Turning Leaf’s iconic leaf motif to create an intricate leaf patterned metal design. This will adorn Turning Leaf’s ‘Pinot Grigio’ and ‘Cabernet Sauvignon’ bottles in the form of ‘bottle jewellery’ – a decorative limited edition sleeve for the bottle. There are two designs, rose gold to reflect the warm tones of the Cabernet Sauvignon and yellow gold metal to reflect the and the citrus notes of the Pinot Grigio. The full range of Lara’s limited edition home dining items for Turning Leaf will be launched later in the season and will be available at selected boutiques and online retailers, including Lara’s Sloane Street store.
