Discover the Passionate Design Style of Vincent Darré

Vincent Darré is, without a shadow of a doubt, a designer who has a strong association with his tendency to mix in his surrealist style with a couple of other surprising design elements. Being a great fan of musicals, especially the classic ones, it’s no wonder that the French interior designer would take some notes out of this style. Basel Shows is about to exemplify some samples.

Being an active user on his Instagram account (@vincent_darre), where he shows his passion for the works of Vincente Minnelli, or Gene Kelly, or his amazing and unique projects, there’s no doubt that Vincent Darré is one of a kind when it comes to projecting the best of French Design. He’s often mentioned for his incredible creations that come off as a mix of colour, textures and patterns.

Curiously enough, he came late to the interior design industry, after a very complicated childhood. When he was a teenager, Vicent Darré used to be a fixture at the legendary Le Palace nightclub in Paris, having even become acquainted with Christian Louboutin and Andrée Putman. It was at that time that he began making dresses for parties, which made him become the centre of attention due to the quality of these works.

Following the advice of many of his friends at the time, he decided to enrol at the Studio Berçot, which was followed up by his first job. This would have been a dream for any aspiring designer: a first experience at Yves Saint Laurent’s couture house. However, Vincent Darré didn’t stay long in the job, considering the job to be “boring” and “old-fashioned”. He would end up passing by other companies such as Claude Montana and Prada.

The real twist in his career came when he was introduced to Karl Lagerfeld, who would end up hiring him as his right-hand man at Fendi. On this experience, Darré definitely saves some fond memories, namely the number of times he laughed while working with the Kaiser. Six years later Vincent Darré would be moving on to accept the position of artistic director at Moschino and four years after that, he was the head of the design studio at Ungaro.

After a hard period in his life, Darré was shaken by a visit to a Dada exhibition at the Pompidou Center, which inspired him to start designing furniture. Ossobucco has been his first furniture collection which included armchairs with vertebrae-like backs and a cocktail table with a basis modelled after a pelvis. The second collection was À L’eau Dalí in a reference to the eccentric Spanish artist and featured designs.

When it comes to his influences, Vincent Darré cites two artists, one chapel and a movie. The artists are Max Ernst and Christian Bérard, the chapel is the Sansevero Chapel, in Naples, and the movie is 1963 Jean-Luc Godard’s movie Le Mépris. He became known for his inspiration full of fantasy, and surrealism, being one of the trendiest designers ever seen in the contemporary age. He has some of the best interior projects ever seen with unique shapes and colours that almost feel like they have a soul of their own.
