Sina Pearson Textiles | Walking the High Line

collection_walking_the_high_line

As soon as I walked the High Line, New York City’s newest urban park, I knew I would have to design a collection inspired by its magnificent views and throbbing energy. The High Line was built on elevated rail tracks that slice through the city’s west side. It gives the visitor a most unique perspective on the modern buildings mixed in with the low slung historical neighborhoods. The promenade is landscaped with fields of wildflowers, creating an exquisite complement to the urban scene.

Each of this collection’s graphic patterns celebrates the views I found along the High Line. Facade‘s geometric pattern mimics the modernist buildings in the distance, while Windows plays off the tightly packed apartment’s windows nearby. Tracks is an homage to the park’s original structure and use. Skyline is a larger scale randomly organized mix of geometric shapes in deep colors of the night. The collection’s colorways are inspired by the neutral tones of New York City’s streets and the brilliantly colored flowers in the meadow-like gardens lining the High Line’s walkways.

The entire collection is woven with high performance features: bleach cleanable and harsh chemical safe, extremely durable (all Wyzenbeek 100,000 double rubs abrasion), made in the U.S.A. and Nano-Tex finish for enhanced stain repellency.
