There’s something oddly opulent about using a foodstuff to create a sculpture and that may be why I find them so compelling. A fruit carpet sounds like something Louis XIV might have installed at the heyday of extravagance at Versailles, but it is in actual fact what Brussels-based agency Villa Eugenie created for the launch of Kenzo’s Spring/Summer menswear 2014 range. Lemons, apples, limes, strawberries and bananas made up the giant installation at the Académie Fratellini in Paris and provided a fabulously fruity backdrop to the event. Not only that but afterwards all the fruit was donated to charity – something pompous French kings would never have done (hence the revolution and that).
