We are proud to have hosted the charity auction of exceptional Duvelleroy fans designed by contemporary fashion & design icons.
The auction has ended, and it was fan-tastic! We are grateful for the overwhelming response. A few items are still available and we decided to add them to our collection at a fixed price.
Find out out which beautiful fans are still available for purchase HERE and read the full story behind this wonderful initiative here below.
Artists, illustrators and designers united through a shared love for the power of design and delivered a series of one-of-a-kind fans, created especially for the charitable auction Fans for HeART, which was open to bids exclusively on www.theinvisiblecollection.com
Conceived by artist José Lévy with Duvelleroy, the 37 beautifully colour-drenched fans were auctioned with 30% of the proceeds going to La Fondation des Artistes; a French non-profit organisation committed to supporting artists from all walks of life.
The idea came to José Lévy during lockdown, when working on his Colour Splash Fan, an original set he created exclusively for Duvelleroy, comprising a luxurious blank canvas fan in birch wood and five scented colour inks. Levy called upon some artist friends and asked them to express their true, unadulterated artistic freedom by colouring the fans. “Visual artists, designers, painters, sculptors, illustrators, embroiderers from different generations and territories, have committed themselves with enthusiasm. Their creations are gathered to form Fans for HeART, a collection defined by sharing and playing” says in awe José Levy.
Notable contemporary icons, including Isabel Marant, Pierre Yovanovitch, John Derian, Yinka Illori and Campbell Rey, to name but a few, “shared and played” by lending their hand and splashing the flutters of the fans to create striking works of art that are instant collector’s items.
The beautiful Duvelleroy fans are a prestigious accessory rooted in Parisian culture, and we are thrilled to see contemporary design icons reimagining them for a good cause. We are all the more thrilled to be part of this great event as supporting talent is at the core of what we do at The Invisible Collection.
The fabulous fans were exhibited at the Joyce Gallery in Paris’ Palais Royal from the 17th-21st November and were sold exclusively through us: discover the collection here.
