Lisa Perry Debuts Jeff Koons Inspired Collection
By Barie-Claire Rogers, April 23rd, 2012
Art and fashion collide with Lisa Perry’s limited edition capsule collection of apparel and accessories, inspired by Jeff Koons. Perry drew from Koons’ pop art and vivid imagery to create a bold, playful collection. The line features some of Koons’ most iconic artwork: Loopy, Rabbit, Monkeys, Monkey Train and Pink Panther. This is Lisa Perry’s third collection in a continuing series of art-inspired lines (her previous collections were inspired by Warhol and Lichtenstein). “He gave us full access to his entire body of work,” Perry explained, “It was more inspiration than I could have ever dreamed of!” The collaborative collection gives fashionistas a fun, fresh take on Mod style and provides art lovers with a tribute to Koons’ incredible career.
Accessories, such as handbags and jewelry, start at $295, while T-shirts, dresses and jackets retail for $150-$4,500. Perry’s collection will be available for purchase exclusively at the Lisa Perry Madison Avenue boutique and at www.lisaperrystyle.com. A portion of the proceeds from the first week of the collection’s sales will go to support the Koons Family Institute, an initiative of the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children.
