ARTIFICE began as an accidental blog in Paris and has grown into a point of view that is decidedly irreverent about the world of art, culture and luxury. ARTIFICE 'at its best' happens when the world of luxury meets boho sensibilities.
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, French teacher and a devoted Francophile. Growing up on the left bank in Paris during one of the most fruitful periods in art, fashion and culture she later studied formally at UC Berkeley and Carnegie Mellon in Drama and Fine Arts.
Ms. Allen has been published in VINGT PARIS magazine, a top Paris blog as well as GIRLS GUIDE TO PARIS, Belle Inspiration and her own self-published blogs Paris Adventuress and Art of Style magazines.

The designers in this show were students, and can be reached through the communications office. In fact, many you will not have heard of but certainly one should be on the look out for them as they emerge into the mainstream fashion community.
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.
