We had first noticed Cassandre’s work a long time ago. A regular in the fashion press, her illustrations are an ode to the day-to-day, a travel journal for daily life.
Sketching a look or a simple attitude, capturing city and nature; brought to life by Cassandre’s unique brushstroke each of these moments is a relaxed take on the lives of people around the world.
For our new children’s collection of Portraits de Villes, we gave her carte blanche to draw New York. She gave us a fresh look at a Manhattan seen from child-height, and a trip back in time with the fascinating dioramas of the Natural History Museum and the costumed actors of the Tenement Museum.
Evocative details that focus on what New York really is; a passing skater, a nod to China Town, a larger-than-life candy shop.
