Great news for all fashion and art lovers! CHLOÉ has teamed up with contemporary arts organisation Studio Voltaire for a limited-edition collection of ready-to-wear that is on sale at a new Mayfair pop-up shop (upstairs, 39 to 40 Albemarle St Mayfair, London W1S 4TE), House of Voltaire, from now until December 20, 2014. Founded in 1952 by Gaby Aghion, Chloé has always encouraged and supported emerging creatives and innovative female talents, offering them a nurturing environment in which to express their ideas.

Therefore it seemed all natural that Chloé’s creative director Clare Waight Keller recruited three female artistsCao Fei, Karen Kilimnik and Jenny Saville – to create bespoke pieces for this special fundraising initiative. Established in 1994, Studio Voltaire was designed to support and promote both emerging and established artists, providing them with spaces to create as well as display their work.

But you don’t have to make it to London, you can also shop those limited edition pieces exclusively online at NET-A-PORTER.COM.
