If you like hip young designers, French people and shiny things, then you will adore Le Cabinet de Curiosités of Thomas Erber Hosted by Maison Kitsuné. Launched in Paris (where else?) at Colette, this is Erber’s fourth installment of the project, which brings together a veritable smorgasbord of design oddities and delights from 50 guest brands and designers. With it’s French/Japanese roots and ability to host a decadent cocktail party, Kitsuné was the perfect match for Erber. “Maison Kitsuné are old friends of mine with a brand I deeply respect and admire,” he says.
On display at the Avant/Garde Diaries and the Maison Kitsuné boutique through December 23, the collection includes covetable body chains by Bliss Lau, a bejeweled pendant by House of Waris, André Saraiva’s dream concert posters and a buttery soft flight jacket by Maison Kitsuné. All items are, of course, handpicked by the very charming (and very French) Erber. “Their savoir-faire sets them apart in their industries,” he says. (That means the “ability to say or do the right or graceful thing.” How do we get some of that?) We strongly recommend you go take a gander.
