Commedia dell’Arte

Couture Edition

To celebrate its 260th anniversary, Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg, under the direction of Dr. Jörg Richtsfeld, is launching a limited edition of the world-famous COMMEDIA DELL'ARTE figures produced by the rococo sculptor, Franz Anton Bustelli, in 1759/60. Sixteen internationally acclaimed fashion designers were invited to create "new clothes" as a new décor for their favourite figure in the Commedia dell'arte group. This COUTURE EDITION is the first time a broad cooperation has been realised between the master porcelain workshops and leading figures in the world of fashion and that their skills have been bundled into a single project. The creations by the designers from Paris, London, Amsterdam, Beirut, New York, Tokyo, Moscow and Munich with their different cultural and creative approaches simultaneously reflect the rich variety that exists on the global fashion scene. The following fashion designers participated in the COMMEDIA DELL'ARTE – COUTURE EDITION:
