Neat PleatJul 26, 2010

We've had a great response to the Antelope ad in Vogue Living, with a number of requests for more information about its inspired art direction and fashion. The two creative minds behind this collection and ad are Bart Halpern (textile designer) and Isabelle de Borchgrave (artist and paper dress maker/creator).

Along with Arte Wallcoverings, Bart Halpern has designed collections for Donghia and his own brand, and is well known for his masterful use of texture, particularly pleats. His designs for Antelope are very chic, with a strong focus on luxurious textures (eg suede) and subtle embelishments.

Isabelle de Borchgrave is renown for her intricately designed paper garments which are often re-creations of historical costumes, ie renaissance, Fortuny, Worth etc. Her work has been included in many publications, along with her own book. It must have been a challenge working with the heavy Antelope wallcoverings, she did a fabulous job.
