THE SHOW-OFF ITEM: TIF­FANY & CO. HOME­WARE

Female (Singapore) - - NEWS - – IJ

Reed Krakoff’s de­but line for the Amer­i­can mar­quee name fo­cuses on ac­ces­sories of a dif­fer­ent kind.

Is it any sur­prise that Reed Krakoff’s de­but col­lec­tion as the jeweller’s chief artis­tic of­fi­cer has noth­ing to do with jew­ellery? Not quite, if you con­sider this de­sign buff’s pas­sion for flip­ping high­end homes and ex­pen­sive taste in art and fur­ni­ture, but we di­gress. What’s game-chang­ing about his Home & Ac­ces­sories line is how it el­e­vates over 30 un­ex­pected house­hold items (tin cans, pill boxes and even ping-pong bats) into in­tel­lec­tu­ally hu­mor­ous, highly col­lectible cu­rios, re­viv­ing in­ter­est in the brand’s long-stand­ing (and long un­der­rated) life­style arm. If you’ve never popped by Tiff & Co. to do some home shop­ping, you will now. Clock­wise from top left: Pill­box, can, $1,650, cup, $940, and straw, Tif­fany & Co. All in ster­ling sil­ver, prices un­avail­able un­less stated
