Vista Alegre and Bordallo Pinheiro have tapped former supermodel Claudia Schiffer for a new tabletop collection. The brands will debut the first release of the collaboration in January 2020 at Maison & Objet in Paris.
Company officials stated that Schiffer is an avid art collector with a self-confessed love of design, as attested to by global coverage of her stunning UK-based homes in Vogue and Architectural Digest.
“The partnership established with Claudia Schiffer will make an important contribution to the international standing of the two Portuguese brands as global references in design. Above all, it is an enormous honor for us to be collaborating with such a globally renowned fashion icon as Claudia Schiffer, who assimilates our brands into her daily life, making them her own,” said Nuno Barra, director of Vista Alegre and Bordallo Pinheiro.
“I have been collecting Bordallo Pinheiro ceramics for years. I’m very excited to collaborate with their team on my ideas and can’t wait see the final product in my home,” said Schiffer.
Vista Alegre and Bordallo Pinheiro have also collaborated with other fashion brands including Christian Lacroix Maison and Oscar de la Renta.
