Fashion Meets Interior Design
Already, Cipelletti's apartment looks like an exhibition space thanks to the series of wall cutouts, visually linking the rooms. Giving the illusion of an almost reflective effect, the cutouts provided the perfect foil for Arbesser's structured, menswear-tinged fashion collection.
Arbesser and Cipelletti's aim was to make a connection and a conversation between the furniture and fashion in each room. In the dining room for example, vintage Joy Division vinyls from Cipelletti's personal collection serve as place mats on the Norman Foster clear glass table, setting the tone for a transparent theme that continues with a collection of Murano glass ashtrays and a sheer ballskirt in the opposite corner.
In the living room, an artwork in grease and graphite that was just recently hand-painted on the wall by British artist David Tremlett creates a striking backdrop for Arbesser's tomboy trouser suit. A bold black and white dress, meanwhile, finds a home next to the radiator and tall chemical glasses and a printed Alcantara suit pops off the sea foam green bath tiles.
Arthur Arbesser's A/W 2014 collection has overall androgynous appeal which works extremely well with the male vibe of Luca Cipelletti's appartment. I feel it wont be long before we see the collaboration between fashion houses and interior designers on a more day to day basis on the high street.
