Cole & Son Collection Inspiration

Many consider the 50s to be one of Miami’s most renowned eras. After the Second World War ended, hordes of wealthy holiday-makers flocked to South Florida. They were attracted by the tropical beaches, luxurious hotels, and celebrated cultural scene that Miami offered. New restaurants, bars, and nightclubs encouraged a vibrant nightlife, while the affluent shopping precinct of Lincoln Road attracted those in search of designer labels. This, coupled with the frequent appearance of celebrities including Frank Sinatra, Elvis and Sean Connery, firmly established Miami as the place to be.

The style and colour palette of this age was a unique one. Art Deco buildings in pastel hues contrasted with the vivid turquoise waters and green palms of South Beach. They were rivalled only by the dazzling neon signs that adorned the ‘strip’. Add to this, Cuban influences, from food and music to art and the result is a colourful, high-octane blend of heady exoticism.

The designs in Cole & Son’s Icons Collections portray 1950s Miami in all its glory. Soft, chalky pastels including dust rose, peppermint and seafoam add a nostalgic air. Whereas, a host of bold colour combinations such as inky blue and lime or violet and teal echo the vivid and diverse nature of Miami culture. They are then presented in signature Cole & Son style. There are also a selection of sun-bleached neutral tones, a soothing accompaniment to any interior space.
