Paris, 26 July 2012, Art Media Agency (AMA).
Until 22 September, Galeries Lafayette Haussmann and its Galerie des Galeries is organising a Pop-up Store where three disciplines are put on display: art, fashion, and design.
A scene painting by designer Julie Pfligersdorffer opens the dialogue between these three themes and enhances the displayed works for sale. A selection of works by fashion designers, as well as clothing, jewelery, accessories, and books related to art are also available for purchase. Prices range from €30 to €2,000.
The following are among Galerie des Galeries’ featured guests:
Simone Bendix, designer for Edition Poshette, is showing an exclusive collection of small leather accessories that draw inspiration from both the poetic universe of ancient books and original prints from the time of William Morris, a 19th century writer and textile designer.
Bernard Chauveau Éditeur has developed two main activities: publishing illustrated books dedicated to the Fine Arts, design, architecture, and fashion, and producing limited-edition art objects. In the Pop-up store, Bernard Chauveau Éditeur is displaying every limited edition produced in collaboration with Galerie des Galeries and artists Rebecca Bournigault, Thomas Lélu, Claude Levêque, and Anne-Laure Sacriste, along with designs by artists David Dubois and Christian Ghion.
Andrea Crews is a creative boutique specialised in atypical events. Since 2002, the artist collective managed by Maroussia Rebecq has been linking the art and fashion worlds. For the Galerie des Galeries event, she is displaying her scarfs, which are limited-edition coloured prints designed by renowned artists.
Ligia Dias is the designer of the eponymously-named jewellery brand. Her pieces merge industrial standards with the key elements of jewellery making. Her jewellery exudes a chic and timeless style.
The work of designer Constance Guisset is a reflection on visual illusion and surprise. She designs light and animated objects whose elegant fluidity sparks wonder.
The concept behind Thierry Lasry’s brand of the same name is “futuristic vintage”. His models are all handmade in France and are made of acetate.
Jeanne Lefrançois’ works are imbued with timeless romanticism. For the Pop-up Store event, she is offering small, detachable, handmade collars remarkable for their soft and inventive lines.
Finally, the Galerie de Multiples is making and circulating multiple original works at prices that are more affordable than one-of-a-kind pieces. In this way, its approach fits into the scheme of democratizing artworks.
