Informed by timeless fashion icons such as Cristobal Balenciaga and Christian Dior, as well as a diverse range of handpicked artworks and photography, interior designer Gérard Faivre carefully interweaves the history of his environs to create a luxurious apartment on Paris’ right bank in a classic combination of black, white and silver-grey. Adorning the walls, wardrobes and soft furnishings are exquisite motifs of houndstooth and lace, juxtaposing a chic yet inviting living space for even the most discerning of individuals.
