Pierre Hardy and the founders of Apartamento sign their collective work at colette
It was at colette’s that we met Pierre Hardy again, accompanied by Apartamento founders Marco Velardi and Nacho Alegre, to celebrate their collaboration, bringing together their creative worlds. For the launch of the Atelier du créateur français collection, a line of shoes and accessories combining know-how and creative power, they unveil a still life work in which Nacho Alegre’s photographic eye sublimates the collection’s models by creating a dialogue with their reference frames. Apartamento was also celebrating the launch of its latest issue (and ten years of existence) at colette’s, a double occasion that did not fail to attract their aficionados, so that the first floor of the concept store was filled in a flash. First for the official signing of the book and then for the cocktail organised for the most intimate friends, including Sophie Fontanel, who was discussed with Pierre Hardy on the sofa in the centre of the room, to meet the creators Julien Dossena and Serge Ruffieux, the icon Violeta Sanchez, or Benjamin Paulin and Pierre Banchereau, who could all seize the work exposed in the middle of the creations of the designer. The perfect opportunity to leaf through it avidly before leaving with its signed copy.
