The Collector x Tastemaker Gianluca Longo Back to Nature

27 October – 17 November Online 12 November Live

London – Christie’s announces The Collector: Online, open for browsing and bidding from 27 October until the 17 November, and The Collector: Live, taking place at Christie’s King Street, on 12 November.

Both auctions represent the finest European and English furniture, works of art, silver, ceramics and gold boxes. Christie’s has collaborated this season with Gianluca Longo, Style Editor of British Vogue and Cabana, who has presented his personal selection of lots from the sale in a pre-auction shoot at Syon House.

Gianluca Longo, has built his reputation through decades of working and consulting in the luxury sector across fashion, travel and interiors, primarily in the creation and production of many high profile international fashion campaigns and magazine location shoots for pre-eminent brands and publications. Gianluca has imagined five rooms within the magnificent surroundings of The Grand Conservatory at the historic and classical Syon House for The Collector, combining lots from both sales. Driven by his vision and aspiration to live much as those travelling at the time of the Grand Tour did, Gianluca chose lots from both The Collector: Live and The Collector: Online sales to create room vignettes (illustrated above on page one, A Drawing Room; illustrated directly below, The Library; illustrated further below, An Entrance Hall and A Dining Room).

The Dining Room: Created and styled by Gianluca Longo Pictured lots 123,174, 504, 506

Tastemaker and international style editor, Gianluca Longo comments, ‘I have always been inspired by nature, travel and art throughout my life and the opportunity to recreate a series of rooms ‘at home’ in the classical surroundings of Syon House, with carte blanche to select my preferred lots across both of The Collector sales, was a way of bringing this to life. It is possible to reimagine these period pieces with a modern touch in today’s home as much as in this grand conservatory’.
