Cassina and Louis Vuitton Honour Perriand

Both Cassina and Louis Vuitton celebrate Perriand’s 110th birthday.

Both fashion and furniture brands took over this year’s Design Miami with displays and installations honouring French architect Charlotte Perriand’s 110th birthday. Characterized as a maverick of 20th century design, the modernist icon championed her own redefined minimalism.  At the fashion house’s Miami flagship, Louis Vuitton presented its Spring Summer 2014 collection – inspired by Perriand’s use of shape and colour – and Cassina debuted a tribute edition of the LC4 lounge chair alongside.

A product of Perriand’s longstanding collaboration with Le Corbusier, LC4 is both functional and comfortable. For the occasion, Cassina collaborated with Louis Vuitton’s tannery to produce a limited edition that reflects the architect’s aesthetic. Employing the fashion brand’s saddler technique, the reupholstered LC4 is emblematic of a Louis Vuitton handbag; pink and brown leather with yellow stitching.
