Dognin x Akira Kugimachi ‘Renaissance Contemporaire’ exhibition at Galerie Pierre-Yves Caer

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Luc Dognin has been making  luxury hand bags in France for decades. I visited him years ago at his head quarters in the Goutte d’Or in the 18eme Paris.  Last night I passed by the Galerie Pierre-Yves Caer where he exhibits his latest collection dedicated to the ‘Renaissance Contemporaire’and inspired by Le château de Chambord. The art is by Akira Kugimachi and is dedicated to poetry and nature.

The exhibition continues till January 12th.
