ART HOUSE: For Pièce d’Anarchive’s spring 2014 presentation, knitwear designer sisters Priscilla and Deborah Royer will have more to offer than the usual rack-and-model display.


While working on their new white-and-black collection, inspired mainly by French contemporary artist Jean-Pierre Raynaud and his masterpiece La Maison — the ultra-sterile-looking white-tiled house — the Royers felt the need to contact him. And the result was an unexpected collaboration.


“Our first exchange was a revelation to us; it felt just right,” Deborah Royer told WWD.


So right, in fact, that Raynaud is installing the remains of his house, which was knocked down in 1993, as sculptures to appear in the designer’s presentation at Paris’ Palais de Tokyo on Tuesday, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The geometric installation will take the form of rubble held in surgical containers.
