alexander wang fashions limited edition furniture for poltrona frau

 

 

 

in a bit of an unexpected collaboration, italian company poltrona frau teams up with fashion designer alexander wang on a limited edition set of lounge furniture. comprised of two bean bag-style chairs, with a trunk bar, which speak of the designer’s urban style, the ‘alexander wang x poltrona frau’ collection has been envisioned to create intimate ‘hang out’ spaces. the furniture expresses wang’s signature use of black as seen in the use of rich velvet and leather upholstering the seats, accented by gold details; partnered with the high-quality craftsmanship for which poltrona frau is known. together, the ‘alexander wang x poltrona frau’ lounge furniture pieces bring forth a juxtaposition of casual comfort, with refined elegance.

 

the ‘alexander wang x poltrona frau’ collection is on show at the alexander wang flagship store at 103 grand street in new york.
