|Italian luxury brand, Borbonese|
A reader shared these wonderful bags with me after reading my blog story about Roy Lichtenstein and Miu Miu. The Roy Lichtenstein Foundation in collaboration with the Italian luxury brand Borbonese, released a limited edition collection based on Roy's colorful art. They are the piece de resistance to any pop art outfit. The small bag collection is sold exclusively thru the Lisa Perry stores. This requires a more in depth conversation about Lisa Perry and her mod life styled.
Lisa gravitated towards the likes of Pierre Cardin, Courreges, and Rudy Genrich. Anything mod from the 1960's became her passion. Lisa lives and sells that mod aesthetic she fell in love with on a trip to Paris so many years ago. She is addicted to color and couture. Her lifestyle stores sell the pop art shift dresses she began designing after graduating from FIT instead of going into the family textile business. She also sells clothing with a very "focused DNA" as Lisa calls it; exclusive lines she has picked up like French tee shirts and the handbags above. She has an extensive vintage couture collection from the 60's and 70's, and has added some housewares, accessories, and bedding to her eponymous stores.
A peek at the 2nd floor loft space above the Madison Avenue store. It's set up like an apartment ~ Lisa's goal is for someone to walk in to any of her spaces and say, "WOW, this is so fun!" I would say she succeeded!
She doesn't just sell the dream, Lisa lives it, and by the looks of her Hamptons house, lives it well. She loves a backdrop of white with pops of different colors in each room. "Anything that screams POP makes me happy." You can't not be happy in this home, and she has two more like it. One in New York City and a third in Palm Beach.
I adore how the tile under the table mimics the look of the pool, which is quite close. I wonder, "How many people have fallen in?"
Lisa is an art collector as well. Between the pool and the ocean is a Robert Indiana mosaic made into a table and a Gary Hume snowman sculpture by the tree.
