Your personal style can be reflected in what you wear and what’s on your dinner table. Celebrities Heart Evangelista and Jinkee Pacquiao are two examples this, as they have Hermes clothing as well as flatware. For table setting inspiration, you can take cues from Pinky Tobiano’s collection of tablescape settings where she enjoys arranging for friends and family.

If you’re looking to inject a bit of your style point-of-view onto your tablescapes, here are five fashion houses with dinnerware collections that can help do that for you.

Hermes

The 184-year-old French brand features bold lines and depth of color in its porcelain tableware collections. The decorative details of each piece are handmade using chromolithography, a method of producing an original print in every production. There are currently 14 lines to choose from, and every set has a story behind it. For instance, the tropical Passifolia set is a homage to the foliage that adorns nature. While the blue, white, and black palette of the Blues D’Ailleurs collection takes inspiration from travel imagery between Europe and Asia.

Gucci

Renowned luxury porcelain company Richard Ginori was Gucci’s partner for their dinnerware line. The collection includes the Italian fashion house’s creative director Alessandro Michele’s signature herbarium motif of branches, leaves, and flowers. Of course, the same sets of dinnerware are in use at Gucci Osteria in Florence; a Michelin Starred restaurant located in Gucci Garden, a museum dedicated to the iconic fashion house. The manufacturing process of Gucci’s homeware range is ethical and sustainable—certified by Gucci Equilibrium, the brand’s initiative to generate positive change for the planet and its population.

Versace

The Italian brand’s dinnerware collection incorporates gold metal detailing, baroque prints, and Medusa’s head— the signature details of the brand’s Ready To Wear collections align seamlessly to the flatware range. Aside from flatware, Versace expands to home decor items such as vases and ashtrays. In 2019, Versace teamed up with German porcelain manufacturer Rosenthal and created Medusa Rhapsody to produce tableware, coffee and tea sets, and decorative dishes.

Dior

Cordelia de Castellane, the brand’s artistic director, designed the maison’s latest tableware collection with Christian Dior’s childhood musings in mind. As written on its website, its late founder would mention his memories in his family’s garden villa in Normandy, and Castellane created the line as a tribute. In an earlier collection, creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri collaborated with Italian artist Pietro Ruffo for a darker aesthetic of black and white. The line, named Constellation, was inspired by Christian Dior’s fascination with astrology.

Ralph Lauren

The American fashion label ventured into the homescape with Ralph Lauren Home. “I design for home the way I design for men or women. With the same attention to detail, and with the same eye for what is beautiful and unique,” says its designer, Ralph Lauren. With craftsmanship as its center, Ralph Lauren Home produces only handmade items. Its dinnerware line has the same nautical feel of its fashion category. Summer Hill, the latest collection launched this month, features original batik and floral patterns in a blue and white color scheme.
