ARTYCAPUCINES COLLECTION

After last year’s first collection, the iconic Capucines bag has once again been reinterpreted by six leading contemporary artists.

 

 

 

BEATRIZ MILHAZES

Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes created a bag that takes after her vibrant and hypnotic paintings inspired by the popular art of her native country.

 

 

 

 

LIU WEI

The Artycapucines from Liu Wei is focused on his interest in geometric architectural forms, such as those found in his large-scale installation ‘Microworld’ at the 2019 Venice Biennale.

 

 

 

 

HENRY TAYLOR

Californian artist Henry Taylor’s Artycapucines transposes ‘A Young Master’, a striking portrait of his close friend Noah Davis, the late American painter and installation artist, using both cutting-edge laser printing and traditional marquetry techniques.

 

 

 

 

JEAN-MICHEL OTHONIEL

Jean-Michel Othoniel saw his Artycapucines contribution as a couture interpretation of a summer basket.

 

 

 

 

JOSH SMITH

New York-based artist Josh Smith’s vibrant Artycapucines design recreates two of his well-known expressionistic paintings.

 

 

 

 

ZHAO ZHAO

Chinese artist Zhao Zhao’s Artycapucines is a sophisticated puzzle of over three hundred laser-cut parts sewn together into an elegant, reflective composition.
