The purveyors of cool at Maison Kitsuné,the illustrious French fashion and music house founded by Masaya Kuroki and former Daft Punk art director Gildas Loaëc have teamed up with fashion writer Thomas Erber for the fourth edition of Le Cabinet de Curiosités.
Opening December 2nd, the CDC showcases objects and oddities from the fields of art, design, travel, and, apparently, eroticism, but don't expect morbid medical supplies or preserved baby fingers. The gear that piques Erber's interest is decidedly luxe. Previous showcases at Colette in Paris, Browns in London, and Andreas Murkudis in Berlin, featured custom jewels by Aimée Aimer, a clay R2D2 by Alexandre de Betak, and a short story (penned specially for CDC) by A Million Little Pieces author James Frey.
This latest exhibition in New York promises weird and wonderful wares from over 50 brands, all of whom created one-of-a-kind pieces for the event, including Michael Bastian, Alexander Olch, Want les Essentials de la Vie, Ghurka, Officine Generale, Parabellum, Moulinette Bicycles, and House of Waris.
Open December 2 through 23, 2013 at Maison Kitsuné (1170 Broadway) and The Avant/Garde Diaries Project Space (372 Broome Street).
