Artists & Designers
French designer Andrée Putman (1925 – 2013), who designed the Morgan Hotel, the interiors of the French Concord among many others, designed her first mannequin, for Barneys, with Ralph Pucci in 1985. “Olympia Goddess” was so successful that she went on to design the “Husband” and “Mistress” mannequins, the start of a long relationship with Ralph Pucci, who, in 1990, was asked to exclusively represent her Ecart International line in the United States, the beginning of the company’s furniture business. In 2000, Putman created Six Easy Pieces, produced under license in the PUCCI workshops. She passed away in 2013 and her legacy and Studio Putman continues today, helmed by her daughter Olivia.
