We are fascinated by the links between design, art and fashion and explored this creative cross-current in our recent Paris Fall Art and Design Program (http://arte-case.com/exclusive-art-and-design-events-in-paris/). During our event at Elsa Schiaparelli’s 1930s atelier in Place Vendome we viewed her very personal collection of art and design which reflected her creative collaboration with the Surrealist artists of the era.
Along the same lines, we are interested to see that the 2014 Louis Vuitton Icones fashion collection is a tribute to one of the most influential furniture designers and architects of the 20th century, Charlotte Perriand. In a nod to Perriand’s famous words, “Like always but never the same”, the collection is designed in modules that can be combined to create new looks and its simple block colors and clear lines reflect the distinctive and clear design philosophy that so characterizes Perriand’s work.
Second image: Originally designed by Perriand in 1951 for student accomodation, this set of five metal-framed tables is being reissued by Cassina from a surviving prototype, with the permission of the Perriand family.
We can source works by this designer for you. Please contact us with inquiries.
