A collaboration between Huntsman and Sotheby’s has given rise to some remarkably beautiful jackets.

Huntsman meets Sotheby's meets Beatrice Caracciolo

The Savile Row tailors and the auctioneers have been working together on a project that brings art and style together in beautiful fashion – and they unveiled some of the fruits of their teamwork in Venice at the end of last week.

A work by Italian artist Beatrice Caracciolo is being used for the silk lining of 11 limited edition bespoke Huntsman jackets to be offered to Sotheby’s clients at the Venice Biennale.

Caracciolo is based in Paris, and has works on display in places including the Pompidou Centre;  ‘Pine Needles’, a striking black-and-white image, is one of her most famous works. Proceeds from the sale of the jackets will go to La Frontera, Caracciolo’s own charity, which provides studio space to struggling but talented artists.

“There’s no more boundaries in many ways,” said Pierre Lagrange of Huntsman.

“Is it design, is it art, is it tailoring? Provided it’s great and it’s going to last the time, that’s all that matters.”

It’s not the first time that Huntsman has combined art and tailoring: previously they have made jackets using works by Rene Magritte, Francis Bacon and Ed Ruscha.

Last year, Huntsman collaborated with Ed Ruscha, printing his work “Boy Meets Girl”
