Alexandra O’Neill and CeCe Barfield sport ready-to-wear dresses from their collaboration with Christie’s.
Markarian fashion designer Alexandra O’Neill and interior designer CeCe Barfield Thompson have curated the perfect hostess ensemble that also matches your linen, china and crystal. The tastemakers collaborated with Christie’s on a capsule collection including dresses and homeware. Inspired by the broad range of antique furniture and modern design classics sold at Christie’s, the collection redefines the luxury objects’ old-world feel into something fresh and modern.
A Chinese enamel-on-copper large jardiniere helped inspire the collection.
Among the central inspirations was a floral-motif fabric found on an antique pair of recamiers ($5,000 to $8,000) seen on the five dresses and embroidered pillows, napkins and plates. The duo successfully showcased appreciation for art historical heritage, from Italian marble to beautifully decorated porcelain. Bergdorf Goodman, 754 Fifth Ave., bergdorfgoodman.com
