For over two centuries, Asprey has been regarded as a top British luxury lifestyle brand. Asprey continues their eternal quest to inspire us with treasured possessions and experiences with their most recent collaboration. For the first in a series of special exhibitions hosted in Asprey’s Private rooms above the flagship Bond Street store, dePury @ Asprey presents a curated exhibit of never seen before works by Chilean artist, Guillermo Lorca, in his first-ever London Exhibit.

Asprey often hosts their elite community consisting of Royalty and movie-stars within their private rooms for decadent dinners. I have been fortunate enough to experience one or two unforgettable moments as a guest of Asprey, the most memorable: sitting opposite movie star, Samuel L Jackson, at a charity dinner for cancer. This time though, the walls have become a gallery, hosting a unique and exclusive art initiative.

This venture is a natural evolution of Asprey’s creative and imaginative spirit which underpins the very foundations of the house, famed for travelling the world sourcing treasures and discovering new and exceptional artists and artisans under the patronage of every reigning Monarch since 1862. Asprey has remained dedicated to discovering the best, expressed through many different collaborations with artists that work with different materials and techniques to produce uniquely curated luxury products, giving another dimension to their art.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Simon de Pury starting with the incredibly talented artist Guillermo Lorca whose works are both mysteriously compelling and unforgettable. Showing these powerful works at the Asprey New Bond Street store, which is a combination of five London homes will allow them to be experienced in the grand space they deserve. The house is filled with works from artists from around the globe who produce Asprey’s luxury products and objets and Guillermo’s paintings will add a beautiful dramatic and dreamy dimension to the scene.” John Rigas, Asprey Chairman.
