Spotlight On Sculpture Artist Sheila Hicks.

Italian design house Loro Piana is spotlighting its collaboration with renowned American artist Sheila Hicks at the MiArt international Modern and Contemporary Art exhibition in Milan. Her textile sculptures were featured as part of Loro Piana’s Cashmere Life Salon at the show.

Sheila Hicks reinterpreted the brand’s artisanal savoir-faire, creating multi-dimensional sculptures in bright, vibrant colors, made from rare flax yarns supplied by the House. Her installations displayed at MiArt earlier this summer now reside in the windows of the Loro Piana store on Via Montenapoleone in Milan until Fall.

Loro Piana has long had a close affinity with the values of the art world, leading to a series of memorable collaborations, including works created by artist Pae White in 2015. This year the Italian house, which draws inspiration from nature and the finest raw materials, has invited Sheila Hicks to be part of its creative process. The American artist is known for her artworks crafted with yarns and fabrics.
