    A chair by Marcel Breuer (right) and Uglo Mulas’ series of ‘Waiting’ photographs (showing Lucio Fontana at work) are the ideal accompaniment to the pared-down simplicity of Arbesser’s structured pieces. ‘Compass’ by Olafur Eliasson drops down from the ceiling above.

    Cipelletti’s apartment looks like an exhibition space thanks to the series of wall cutouts, visually linking the rooms.

    In the living room, a graphic wall painting by British artist David Tremlett provides a dramatic frame for a simple suit. The Tong Y-Block table is by Luca Cipelletti and Bernard Dubois. The side chairs are by Charles & Ray Eames.

     

    Austrian designer Arthur Arbesser took over the private home of architect Luca Cipelletti for the debut of his A/W 2014 collection during Milan Fashion Week, set against a killer collection of Modernist art. The apartment windows overlook the high-rise skyline of what the fashion designer refers to as “industrial Milan.”

    Arbesser’s geometrically patterned coat was set against a stripe design “Superboxes” by Ettore Sottsass.

     

    It must have been most convenient to host a show in a 1920s apartment that already looks like a killer gallery space, thanks to it’s enviable bone structure, iconic furniture collection and the art by Italian design masters. Giving the illusion of an almost reflective effect, the series of wall cutouts visually link the rooms, providing the perfect backdrop for Arbesser’s structured and androgynous fashion collection. ‘We tried to make a connection and a conversation between the furniture and fashion in each room,’ says Cipelletti. Not bad. Not bad at all.
