Paul Smith and LAMA
Paul Smith Los Angeles and LAMA have partnered together to produce a special curated preview within the Paul Smith store on Melrose Avenue in anticipation of LAMA’s 20th Anniversary Auction.
September 4 – 16, 2012
Paul Smith (8221 Melrose Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90046)
Monday – Saturday 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Sunday 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
For two weeks, select pieces of art and design from LAMA’s 20th Anniversary Auction will be showcased amongst Paul Smith’s upcoming Fall collection. Highlights in the curated preview include a grouping of designs from the Nakashima Studio, lamps by Serge Mouille, paintings from the California Hard Edge School, a Walter Darwin Teague Kodak camera, and a selection of works from the California Ceramics movement.
“Art and Design informs so much of today’s fashion,” says Peter Loughrey, Director of Modern & Contemporary Art at LAMA. “Just like fashion, Design and Art make a statement about who we are and how we live. To paraphrase Adolf Loos, ‘We don’t dress like our ancestors, why should our interiors?’ The collaboration between Paul Smith and LAMA effortlessly merges vintage modern art and design and contemporary fashion only to strengthen the idea of modern living.”
