Yves Delorme
A leading purveyor of French luxury linens since 1845

Family-owned since 1845, French luxury linen brand Yves Delorme is as renowned for its contemporary fashion prints based on original artworks as it is for its timeless classics. The company’s mission to provide the finest bedlinens has been passed down the generations and today its collections are often considered to be a benchmark in the home market sector. For more than two decades it has been a member of the revered Comité Colbert, an association that flies the flag for the best French luxury brands; more recently it launched Yves Delorme Couture to showcase its exceptional savoir-faire.

 

Sleep is an important part of life and an essential element in maintaining health and wellbeing. To aid the best possible slumber, Yves Delorme’s luxury bedding collections are manufactured from the finest traditional linen, percale, jacquard and sateen damask fabric. In addition, organic or Supima cotton is chosen to reduce the company’s environmental footprint. Plastics have also been eliminated from packaging (instead products come in recyclable silk organza pouches), rainwater is harvested to iron the textiles and the new production site in Lille is energy efficient – all of which is part of its commitment to sustainability.

After opening Yves Delorme stores in Paris, Monaco, Geneva and New York, London was the next obvious location. First, the Yves Delorme Couture collection was sold at Harrods; now the company has five boutiques in Somerset and London, including one on Walton Street in Knightsbridge. Here, customers can find two floors of sophisticated, decorative and romantic bedlinen and homeware, including Yves Delorme Couture, Laurence Tavernier nightwear, Iosis cushions and exceptional Yves Delorme bedding. Not forgetting the signature Monogrammed Linen Shop monogrammed gifts, beautiful accessories, silk nightwear and quirky homeware goods that the company is known for.

 

Complementing the readily available classic designs, the Walton Street shop also offers a bespoke monogramming service. This gives clients and interior designers the freedom to select from a variety of colours, fabrics, embroideries and sizes, tailoring designs to their own personal specifications. Each material offers gentle softness, exquisite comfort and excellent quality in every season; they are also characterised by their resistance to wear and ease of care. The linen collections in particular combine technical innovations with the most beautiful fabrics to create a feeling of luxury and sensuality.

 

This month, Yves Delorme presents its new Autumn/Winter 2021 collection. Nature is always at the heart of the brand’s identity and this season it has been paired with the notion of travel to exotic lands. Highlights include the soft floral bedlinen, Belle de Nuit, where a contemporary look is created using pastels and dark blue ink. There’s also Un Jour, Une Histoire, a bed and bath collection featuring prints that depict a joyful menagerie of hummingbirds and monkeys; and Pour Toujours, a classic Toile de Jouy-style percale linen collection with a modern twist where the textile is re-imagined with a hand-drawn design in a fresh, pomegranate shade.

 

For those who prefer something regal, the jacquard Tenue Chic range combines a Prince of Wales check with an ornamental floral motif in muted chestnut and white, while Nuit Blanche is a smart midnight blue design mixing florals and Ikat techniques. This is exquisite French luxury bedlinen, beautifully crafted for long-lasting comfort – and a blissful night’s sleep.
