Escada Partners with M. Frederick

New York. August 13, 2013 – Leading luxury womenswear brand, ESCADA, recently contracted M. Frederick Interiors to produce one-of-a-kind, life-size teak horses as a tribute for the brand’s 35th anniversary. During the summer of 1976, ESCADA founders Margaretha and Wolfgang Ley bet and won on a thoroughbred Irish racing horse… his name was ESCADA. The brand, founded in 1978, provides a distinct sense of refined quality, workmanship, and excellent fit and is characterized by color, print, and the love for detail.

 We are pleased to be able to provide such strong, inspiring pieces for a brand of such elegance and legacy,” says M. Frederick Interiors Design Director Matthew Frederick.

The recently unveiled installation marked an impressive and elegant beginning to the brand’s Spring/Summer 2014 fashion week preparations. “Thank you to the talented team at M. Frederick Interiors – your unique and creative work was the perfect tribute to ESCADA’s heritage,” said Suzanne Humbert, SVP ESCADA.

Lichtenstein Retrospective at Tate Modern

M. Frederick Lichtemstein at Tate Modern

 

Lichtenstein: A Retrospective is the first full-scale retrospective of this important artist in over twenty years. Co-organised by The Art Institute of Chicago and Tate Modern, this momentous show brings together 125 of his most definitive paintings and sculptures and reassesses his enduring legacy. Running since February, this exhibit is closing on  May 27, 2013, so be sure to check it out if you will be in London over the next two weeks.

Lichtenstein is renowned for his works based on comic strips and advertising imagery, coloured with his signature hand-painted Benday dots. The exhibition showcases such key paintings as Look Mickey 1961 lent from the National Gallery Art, Washington and his monumental Artist’s Studio series of 1973–4. Other noteworthy highlights include Whaam! 1963 – a signature work in Tate’s collection – and Drowning Girl 1963 on loan from the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

The artist’s rich and expansive practice is represented by a wide range of materials, including paintings on Rowlux and steel, as well sculptures in ceramic and brass and a selection of previously unseen drawings, collages and works on paper.

Room after room pays tribute to his extraordinary oeuvre, celebrating the visual power and intellectual rigour of Roy Lichtenstein’s work.

…at its best Lichtenstein’s work is sensational – his style may be controlled but the effect is vivid and seductive. ****

Lichtenstein’s cool, dry wit retains its overtly uncomplicated eye-catching strength. But now the curators set out determinedly to show us something more.

Profound or simply effective, Lichtenstein knew how to make a canvas leap out at you. ****

M. Frederick featured in April Elle Decor

M. Frederick is pleased to share that our “Romeo” is featured in the April edition of Elle Decor.  We love Romeo because he exudes such a strong sense of power and grace, and this is magnified in the large format of the image.

Our standard framing pairs Romeo with a rich, deep gallery matte and a clean black frame, letting him be the star of the show. Romeo is one of many large format photographs curated and produced exclusively by M. Frederick.
