NEW YORK STORIES

Dipping elegantly into the past, dramatic Ziggurat forms and natural swirling marble patterns of the Art Deco movement are the source of inspiration for Jim Thompson’s exciting new collection. An apt originator for the creative designs of Ou Baholoyodhin as he follows in the footsteps of the company’s founder and lovingly reawakens an era of opulence. Jim Thompson, a man who would later fall deeply in love with the East, had his architectural roots in New York where he spent an incredible few years in the City of Dreams, immersing himself in the grand and exceptionally innovative styles of the 20’s and 30’s Deco period, whilst socialising with the city’s elite. During this period the vibrant city transformed into a modern, decadent jungle of towering, geometrical edifices. Intricate geometric forms were echoed in modern architecture, such as the landmark Paramount building sporting the stepped back terraces of the great pyramids and temples. Grand interiors boasted vast steel panels, classic sun burst motifs, geometric shapes and stylized images in gold and monochrome hues. Whilst in the East Side of Midtown Manhatten, heeled shoes could be heard echoing on the pristine, grand marble floors as the city’s flamboyant and extravagant elite danced the night away at the Waldorf Hotel. Opulent prints in a myriad of colourways, rich textured depictions of dense natural landscape, and sumptuous Art Deco inspired neutral palettes feature prominently in Ou Baholyodhin’s September collection, reinventing the extravagance of Jim Thompson’s time spent in New York.
