Introducing Carine Roitfeld and CR Studio - The third curator of the Veuve Clicquot Widow Series – Launching October 2017
This autumn Veuve Clicquot will be hosting the third annual Veuve Clicquot Widow Series. Continuing to foster partnerships with creative luminaries to produce superlative, immersive experiences, this October sees Carine Roitfeld, and her creative content team at CR Studio, named as the third curator. Carine and her studio follow in the illustrious footsteps of photographer Nick Knight who curated the inaugural Veuve Clicquot Widow Series in 2015, and FKA twigs who was the curator of last year’s event.
The Veuve Clicquot Widow Series pays homage to the revolutionary founder of the house, Madame Clicquot, a trailblazer of her time, she single-handedly took on her late husband’s champagne business, and went on to pioneer several industry innovations whilst demonstrating her creative dexterity. Now firmly established on the London, this annual event allows Veuve Clicquot to seek seminal creatives who have an unfulfilled desire or passion project they wish to bring to life mirroring the values of Madame Clicquot.
Carine Roitfeld says : “I’m a story teller, that’s my job as an editor and stylist. This opportunity is completely different, and now my team at CR Studio and I have the opportunity to tell a story with the viewer actually experiencing the story as we tell it. It’s not a party, it’s a truly immersive experience. It’s a different way of thinking!”
Jean-Marc Gallot, President Maison Veuve Clicquot commented: “We are delighted to be collaborating with iconic visionary Carine Roitfeld and CR Studio for the third installment of the Veuve Clicquot Widow Series. Madame Clicquot herself challenged conventions and was a true innovator of her time. The Maison embraces the attitude Carine has consistently conveyed through her work, her artistic yet audacious aesthetic and fashion leadership over the decades. We welcome another empowering woman into the house of Veuve Clicquot.”
