When celebrities embody
They have all marked their generations, they all have
an iconic object that we naturally associate with their
names and that we adore adopting. Audrey Hepburn’s
little black dress, Bridget Bardot’s Vichy gingham skirt,
the striped sailor shirt worn by Picasso. The ageless
watches that Don Draper changed with each season of
Mad Men, the satin dresses made sublime by Grace
Kelly, the hat created by Vivienne Westwood and worn
at the Grammy’s by Pharell Williams.
Iconic offers an history of objects rooted in our collective memory through portraits of iconic characters who
did so much to magnify them.
