The fragrance of tea, swing music, the flutter of long eyelashes.
Life’s beautiful things are hidden among the predictable, and capturing their nuances fills the canvas with colour.
The Chat Noir Capsule Collection is Gio Pagani’s happy thought, an enthusiasm for perceptible details that become essential, the same ones that catch the eye, the ones that sit in the rooms of the memory. A French taste for beauty and sophistication, a savoir-faire that turns design into compositional art that turns its gaze on Art Nouveau and Art Deco, on a Paris that winks flirtatiously at a present looking on with enchantment.
Perfect harmony between the strength and delicacy of the materials that shape the collection enriching it with special editions – fusions and diverse combinations, like Gaudi’s verve or a design by Hector Guimard. The different metals shine against the fabrics, leathers and various proportions. The geometry of the feet romances the softness of the seats, as in the RENDEZ-VOUS armchair, rays of light become velvet or jacquard in GIOPAGANI’s Couture collection.
The designer plays his own music through the lines of an eclectic, euphoric design, where the joy of making is guided by talent in a café-chantant two-step.
