REMAINS OF A SURREAL NEW COLLECTION FOR OKA R eferencing Cubism, Dali, skeletons, and the Surrealist parlor game Exquisite Corpse, French decorator, dandy, and artistic director Vincent Darré creates fantastic, surreal interiors celebrating the decorative arts and crafts. In a new capsule collection for British brand OKA, Darré spins the limited-edition and numbered four-piece offering through the ruins of nocturnal 18th-century gardens and deconstructed architectural fragments. The Spiral lamp ($1,295) with twirled French shade references a reinterpreted Ionic column, while the Lyric console table ($5,195) is a segment of the remains of an abandoned garden. Perhaps most fantastical is the dreamy and palatial XIV mirror, almost five feet in height, with foxed glass and resin embellishment ($2,995). Vincent Darré at OKA, 3461 W. Alabama St., Rebecca Sherman DARRÉ: Darré's Gemini vase for OKA Vincent Darré with his capsule collection: Spiral lamp, XIV mirror, and Lyric console table 60
