ARTIFICE began as an accidental blog while living in Paris and has grown into a point of view that is decidedly curious, irreverent and takes a historical viewpoint of the world of art, culture and luxury for a modern age. 'ARTIFICE' at its best is where the world of extraordinary circumstances meet with boho sensibilities find themselves in the same well appointed room. 'With the boundaries blurring between art, culture, technology and media this is a unique time to be a creative in a world where traditional ways of doing things are open to interpretation.'
Pikke Allen is a Writer, Brand Curator and Principal Consultant of her own luxury brand atelier. Her passion for all things French is a tribute to her dad, a devoted francophile and French teacher. Spending many summers in France growing up on the left bank in Paris was a great education. A degree in Dramatic literature from Berkeley and a Masters in Fine Arts at Carnegie Mellon completed her formal training. Ms. Allen entered the world of entertainment as a designer, costumer and stylist in Hollywood seeing it all from backstage and behind the curtain. Ms. Allen has been published in VINGT PARIS magazine, a top Paris blog as well as GIRLS GUIDE TO PARIS.

This launch is fantastic news. After meeting all the great team at LUXE YARD, I am very happy a new player has arrived on the scene with a unique option for online shopping and curating great pieces, new designers, and vintage collections and more.
Love when movie fashions become trends and this coat is no exception! I also am very impressed with the focus on luxury, quality and workmanship and of course, who doesn't want it! Curious, is the bustier for sale, as it does complete the outfit!
I can't imagine I am alone, in finding the world of men's cufflinks fascinating. The art, the history, and the beauty of these men's accessories have always had a unique place in a man's wardrobe. Now that Faberge has released these, the ultimate has been reached. So, if I could just find the perfect French Cuffed shirt to match these (not all custom made shirts are alike) my fantasy would be complete.
Hello...thank you again for this nice article. Correction: Gowns not available in the US as of yet, and only released for awards season until such time as they will be introduced to the public. Thanks.
