Cult candle purveyor Diptyque is branching out: The Parisian scentmaker will debut a trio of textile-based goods this fall. The limited-edition line consists of a pouch ($45), tote ($58) and pillow cover ($90) in several bold, Instagram-worthy prints. Designed by illustrator Charlotte Gastaut using linen sourced from Western Flanders, the fabrics harken back to a set of in-house creations devised by Diptyque’s founders at the original Boulevard Saint-Germain store. The geometric patterns—in royal blue, sea green and oriental red—have the woven, antiquish look of prized vintage finds, as though they’d just been rediscovered in some forgotten 5th Arrondissement storage room (but in a good way).
