Cashmere for Keith-------
Keith Haring was never one to shy away from voicing a strong statement. Neither is Lucien Pellat-Finet—the haute cashmere designer who’s been known to print his sweaters with everything from skulls to cannabis leaves. This outspokenness is one reason why Pellat-Finet’s capsule collection in tribute to the late artist seems so fitting. “I never knew him personally, but his work always spoke to me—it’s still modern and rebellious,” said Pellat-Finet, who will be giving a portion of the collection’s proceeds to the Keith Haring Foundation. A major retrospective of Haring’s work will open at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris on April 19. In the meantime, Pellat-Finet is showcasing his favorite pieces from the Haring range in the window of his shop on the Rue Saint-Honoré.
Lucien Pellat-Finet’s Keith Haring sweaters are priced at 1,880 euros and are available at his Paris shop, located at 231 Rue Saint-Honoré, 75001.
