Jeff Koons Lends His Playful Characters to Designer Lisa Perry's New Capsule Collection.

When designer Lisa Perry walked into her eponymous Madison Avenue boutique last Thursday evening, the white sequined shift dress she wore appeared stark and devoid of color, until she whirled around to show off the digital print of Jeff Koons’s 1988 porcelain sculpture “Pink Panther” emblazoned on its back. Koons’s wife, Justine Koons, walked around to greet guests sporting what appeared to be a simple, chic white moto jacket over a black dress. But a view from behind revealed the artist’s 1986 stainless steel sculpture “Rabbit.”

The playful frocks were two of many being celebrated that night at a cocktail party and intimate dinner hosted by the artist and W magazine editor Stefano Tonchi. The event marked the debut of Perry’s latest art-inspired collection, which features Koons’s work. (Perry has also created lines covered with Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein images.)
