Memphis and Saint Laurent join forces in a design exhibition

Anthony Vaccarello, Saint Laurent’s artistic director, is making a big splash with this acidic-colored design exhibition. Until June 23, the Saint Laurent Rive Droite boutique is lit up with emblematic objects from the Italian group Memphis. Our eyes are immediately attracted and seduced by the “Ashoka” lamp, signed by Ettore Sottsass – founder of Memphis – and its revisited geometric shape, or by the flagship piece of the collection, the “Tawaraya Ring”, a bed in the shape of a ring sprinkled with colorful cushions. As you walk down the aisle, you can admire a selection of decorative pieces, from ashtrays to vases, including glasses and exceptional books that tell the story of Memphis. The exhibition, which will be on display on all three floors of the store until June 23, 2021, also highlights the capsule collection with a streetwear line – sweatshirts, dresses, sneakers – specially created for the occasion by Anthony Vaccarello.

This meeting between Italian design and haute-couture comes as the Memphis group celebrates its fortieth anniversary. These two worlds have never been so close, because of their willingness to shake up codes, and are now united in perfect harmony. Anthony Vaccarello has always been inspired by the graphic and colorful line of the group Memphis.
