For this special collaboration, Matthew Porter used his own images as source material for this unique take on Lady Dior’s signature bag. Displayed on one side is a graphic recreation of his celebrated flying car images, and on the other he looked to the high difference camouflage that has inspired his recent work to create a dynamic abstract pattern. Using the technique of marquetry, the elements are assembled one by one to compose an image is glazed calfskin with velvet details. As a compliment to the metal charms, he also designed a red car, which contains the signature plate, and is also available as a key chain. Porter has been profiled in The New York Times, and his work is in the permanent collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cincinnati Art Museum, and the UBS Art Collection, among others. His first monograph, Archipelago, was published by Mack Books in 2015. Porter lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
