Chloé unveils its collaboration with London-based art collective
Recognition of the un-recognised
Since it began in 1994, the London-based collective Studio Voltaire has shone a spotlight on some of the most under-the-radar talent in the art world, and to mark the organisation's 20th anniversary this November, director Joe Scotland is teaming up with Chloé. Running from now until December, the British studio will open the third installation of its biennial pop-up store, in partnership with Chloé and its creative director Clare Waight Keller.
The temporary boutique, House of Voltaire, has now opened in Mayfair and will sell a curated selection of commissioned home décor, limited-edition prints, artworks, clothing and accessories, all created by a variety of artists and designers.
Chloé has also created a special four-piece capsule collection – a bag by its creative director, a top and shorts by the painter Karen Kilimnik, a dress by artist Cao Fei and a scarf by the painter Jenny Saville – all of which will also be available on Net-a-Porter starting November 14.
Aside from the unique merchandise, Waight Keller and Scotland have also organised two exhibitions – one by the Turner Prize nominee Marvin Gaye Chetwynd and another featuring American artist Anne Collier.
House of Voltaire will run through December 20 at 39–40 Albemarle Street, Mayfair, London
