Earlier this week, noted choreographer Benjamin Millepied, former New York City Ballet star Janie Taylor, and an intimate chorus of dancers allowed a one-night only performance at the L.A Dance Project’s annual benefit event. Three pieces were performed throughout the night, one being Millepied’s “Hearts and Arrows,” which featured a custom garment designed by Berluti Artistic Director Alessandro Sartori. Ultra-light construction and super-stretch fabric lent to Millepied’s costume, a deconstructed and elastane seamless wool suit perfect for fluid movement. The second collaboration between them—the two creatives first teamed up last September for an André Saraiva short, “Rendez-Vous Au Club Swann”—both foot and hand reunite to fuse their respective worlds of art.
