FEELING SHEEPISH: Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne’s surrealistic sculptures will get a retrospective next year at Les Arts Decoratifs in Paris beginning March 18. The exhibition will be organized by architect Peter Marino, an avid collector of their work who has used several sculptures to decorate Chanel and Dior boutiques. Among the works on display will be the bust of the model Veruschka, muse for the late Yves Saint Laurent, as well as Lalanne’s famous troupe of sheep. With his wife, Claude, also an artist, the late François-Xavier enjoyed great success among fashion designers, with commissions from the likes of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, Hubert de Givenchy and Karl Lagerfeld. Marc Jacobs, John Galliano, Reed Krakoff of Coach and François Pinault have also collected works by the Lalannes.
