Patrick Frey & Christian Astuguevieille
A long-time friend of Christian Astuguevieille, Patrick Frey had always wanted to create a collection with him. He appreciates his personality, his originality and his rigor. He also admires the constancy in his work and the original way in which he appropriates traditional French culture, purifying it to modernize it while preserving its soul.

Christian Astuguevieille made a name for himself as artistic director of perfume and fashion houses; Molinard, Rochas, Nina Ricci or the famous japan brand Comme des Garçons, for whom he created about sixty perfumes and invented such smells as clothes drying in the sun or overheated photocopiers! Mr. Astuguevieille is above all known for the objects and furniture developed around his own imagination, and that are now exhibited in museums and galleries around the world
By bringing up to date the classical motifs of previous centuries, with an obvious modernity, Christian Astuguevieille has succeeded in diverting all the French art of living dear to Maison Pierre Frey from its original use… The artist’s leitmotif is to play with codes and periods.
