Prouvé Raw

There is a new collaboration in town : G-Star RAW and Vitra.  And who better for them to collaborate on then the limited edition designs of Jean Prouvé.  Last summer on the Vitra campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany there was an exhibition of 17 furniture re-interpretations of some of his incredible pieces of furniture and lighting.  The great news - nine of these are now available for purchase as special editions following the exhibition - amazing!

With a palette of steel, leather and wood these pieces are simple, modern and unique and hold the essence of Prouvé's designs in hand while working with the raw essence of G-Star.  I love these re-editions and wish I could have had a look in person. I guess I will have to visit Vitra's Manhattan showroom to peek at. Anyone else as excited about these as I am?
