At Work with Camira Present ‘Monroe’

Monroe – Embracing 50’s glamour.

At Work with Camira Present ‘Monroe’


June 17th, 2014

Full of optimism and energy after the dark period of the 2nd World War the 50’s era reflected celebrations, high spirits and razzle-dazzle. The fabulous fifties threw up many a glamour icon, but none as captivating as Marilyn Monroe herself.


Embracing this current key trend, Monroe is a simple yet stylish dobby weave upholstery fabric. It’s textured woollen bouclé creates a pre-worn bobbled effect reminiscent of fifties apparel. It conjures up an eclectic, nostalgic mix of retro memories from an optimistic feel-good decade.


The Monroe colour palette is both kitsch and happy reflecting the post war celebratory lift including candy pinks, retro blues and pop-art inspired tones. The product is named quite simply after ‘Marilyn Monroe’ who was one of the most celebrated iconic figures of fifties Hollywood stardom.
