La Grande Odalisque: Kathryn Ireland

I stumbled on this ad through sheer happenstance, and then got scared because I thought I had died and gone to heaven.  

Kathryn Ireland, your fabulousness knows no bounds.  Your strange mixture of extreme confidence and insecurity has made this one of the most disconcerting fabric ads of all time.  I love you.  Never change.  Salamandre, run this ad forever.

Okay, down to business.  I went searching on the Salamandre website to see what the actual collection was all about.  Couldn't fine it.  I mean, WHAT!  Why isn't Kathryn on the home page?

I started doing some googling and found a nice slideshow on Architectural Digest.   My favorite is this striped pattern, but it's not earth shattering or anything.  

Maybe I just need to see the fabrics used for something, and then I will be blown away.
