Yesterday, April 28th, marked the opening of "L'Art de L'Automobile. Chefs-D'Œuvre de la Collection Ralph Lauren"—The Art of the Automobile: Masterpieces from the Collection of Ralph Lauren—at Paris' Les Arts Décoratifs.
Really amazing stuff:Among the major car collections in the world, there is one that stands out more than any other as synonymous with excellence: that of iconic American fashion designer Ralph Lauren. A selection of the most prestigious sports cars from the 1930s to present day is on view for the first time in Europe at Paris’ Musée des Arts Décoratifs. seventeen outstanding cars, chosen by curator Rodolphe Rapetti, and put on display by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, outline the main phases of European automobile history. With this collection, Ralph Lauren shows that the automobile is a major art form created by the industry's biggest names: Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Bentley, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Porsche and of course, Ferrari, the high point of this unique collection.
