Daphne Guinness, heiress to the beer empire is being called to bestow her styling magic upon yet another luxury department store! If you don’t know who she is you better read up on her, she is one of few woman with an impeccable amount of style with a design aesthetic that is so inspiring! I must admit I was recently introduced to her earlier last year through my good friend Kenia and I’ve been hooked on chronicling her past work and upcoming projects ever since! It pays to have friends in your circle that can enhance your own personal fashion library so to speak and I’m glad she does so for me!
Daphne has been called by the Parisian store Printemps to decorate their store after her amazing display in the Barney’s window where she was getting dressed for the Met Gala. The window display will include digital statues of the socialite dressed in designers such as Maison Martin Margiela, Paco Rabanne, and many more. The displays will be captured by the phenomenal photography Nick Knight titled “Visions Couture” display and will be visible to the public on February 5th. (Via WWD)
It’s been 7 years since I’ve last been to Paris and this form of fashion depicted as visual art is definitely one of many reasons to go back. I think its time to start saving to book a flight to see my cousins in Marseille and make that happen ;)
