Garden of Beauty
- Combining Worlds with Flowers

Already in the 1970s Michel Comte worked for Bergdorf Goodman
in New York on their impressive window displays. This was an early collaboration with Andy Warhol, and marked a time when Comte discovered the bold impact simple yet exquisitely executed decorative schemes could have on passersby. Since these opportune beginnings, he has created numerous such projects, mostly incorporating natural elements—the full bounty of flora. Garden of Beauty. Combining Worlds with Flowers explores Comte’s recent use of flowers to wrap buildings in Stuttgart and Düsseldorf for the luxury retailer Breuninger. Together with art director Jens Remes, Comte creates an entirely new retail environment and branding aesthetic.
