After last year’s first collection, the iconic Capucines bag has once again been reinterpreted by six leading contemporary artists.
Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes created a bag that takes after her vibrant and hypnotic paintings inspired by the popular art of her native country.
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.
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 saw his Artycapucines contribution as a couture interpretation of a summer basket.
New York-based artist Josh Smith’s vibrant Artycapucines design recreates two of his well-known expressionistic paintings.
Chinese artist Zhao Zhao’s Artycapucines is a sophisticated puzzle of over three hundred laser-cut parts sewn together into an elegant, reflective composition.
