ART + DECORATION 70 T he best hosts are always considering an unexpected mix, from decor to guest list. Case in point: Carolina Herrera and Cabana. The fashion house and the decadent global interiors publication have collaborated on an exclusive tabletop collection — the fi rst of its kind for Carolina Herrera — and it's a pairing we won't soon forget. Cabana founder Martina Mondadori Sartogo and Carolina Herrera creative director Wes Gordon connected over their mutual love of travel and vivid colors, resulting in an exquisitely crafted range of ceramics, table linens, and glassware. Standout pieces include a Murano pitcher in peppy yellows and oranges, delicately embroidered napkins, and gold-rimmed plates hand-painted with florals inspired by traditional Iznik designs. Carolina Herrera x Cabana, exclusively at the Carolina Herrera boutique in Dallas, New York, and Los Angeles, and at Lisa Collins Shaddock O n November 1, Ikea launches its long-awaited limited-edition Markerad collection, which was announced in 2017. Fans of designer Virgil Abloh have waited almost two years for the collaboration to appear in stores. Abloh, named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most infl uential people in the world in 2018, has risen to star status through his numerous collaborations with rapper Kanye West. Following an internship at Fendi, Abloh launched street-fashion house Off-White and currently serves as creative director for Louis Vuitton Menswear. The 15-piece Ikea collection was designed with millennials in mind and is meant to be inexpensive and fashionable, a blend of contemporary art, street art, and Ikea product design. Markerad, which means "marked" in Swedish, fi ts well with Ikea's minimalist approach, utilizing clean lines and a limited color palette, with unique touches through the designer's use of graphic statements. Eye-catching objects include a rug that's a reproduction of the traditional Ikea receipt, which Abloh describes as FASHION PLATE — LITERALLY VIRGIL ABLOH LIMITED EDITION FOR IKEA DROPS being "transformed into art." There's a framed image of the Mona Lisa that illuminates to serve as a wall light; a white-on-white "Temporary" wall clock; a mirror with an intentional crack to distort images; and a chair with a doorstop as leg. The collection is available Friday, November 1, in-store only at Ikea (not available online); there's a maximum of one per person of each of the 15 pieces in the collection. Wristbands will be given out for store entry, beginning at 7 am. Anne Lee Phillips F rench writer and artist Jean Cocteau was a major fi gure in the Dadaist and Surrealist movements of the early 20th century, producing avant- garde paintings, novels, poetry, plays, and fi lms. He also explored the decorative arts, creating ceramics and frescoes that featured his lyrical sketches, motifs, and manuscript blurbs. Cocteau died in 1963, but his legacy has been preserved through the France-based Jean Cocteau Committee, which promotes his work and oversees licensing. French furniture maker Roche Bobois has released a new collection in collaboration with the Cocteau Committee, featuring his charming pictorial and poetic designs on embroidered pillows, bed linens, lamps, woven rugs, tables, and an armchair. Cocteau produced ceramic designs between 1957 and 1963, often using techniques he developed himself, such as applying designs with an oxide pencil. For the collection, Roche Bobois tapped an Italian master ceramicist to reproduce limited- edition vessels and plates using Cocteau's exact techniques.
