“When I discovered the name Fleur du Mal, it represented a dichotomy that I’m drawn to – beauty with a bit of a dark side. As a reference to Baudelaire’s poetry, we tapped into the theme “love hurts” for our campaign. I curated my art collection for Saatchi Art from the point of view of my brand – chic, provocative, and with an edge. This is the aesthetic that I am naturally attracted to, and I think a lot of the pieces reflect that vision.” – Jennifer Zuccarini

Getting to Know…

Jennifer Zuccarini

Founder & Creative Director, Fleur du Mal


How do you describe your personal style?
Eclectic, chic, and a little provocative. I like glamour but I’ve always been attracted to street style, everything from London in the Eighties look to Punk. I think the mix is what’s interesting.

Tell us, what role does art play in your life?
As a designer, I look at all forms of art for inspiration. The name of my new brand, Fleur du Mal, was inspired by the infamous collection of poems by Baudelaire. We also feature artists on our website’s pin-board and blog.

What do you collect?
I collect photography, drawings, and have a few artist friends that I try to support when I can. I have an extensive wish list. I love to see what’s coming up at auction, and I try to check out new artists at shows in New York and Miami.

What was the last museum or gallery you visited?
The AGO in Toronto over the holidays to see “Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics, and Painting.”

If you could only have one piece of art in your life, what would it be?
I would absolutely love to have one of Richard Prince’s Nurse Paintings. I particularly like “Surfing Nurse” and “Runaway Nurse.”

Which artist would you most like to meet?
Hmm, maybe Warhol – or maybe I would have just liked to hang out at The Factory…

What was the first piece of art you purchased?
The first piece of art I purchased that felt “real” was my Arthur Elgort print of Paris at night taken from The Hotel de Crillion in 1979. I enjoy it everyday.

    One of my paintings was featured in this collection! I had no idea until I stumbled upon some of my work on Pinterest! Thank you so much for featuring me!

  7. Very interesting interview with some answers that show a clear vision of what art should be. The collection completes this standpoint. I don’t agree with all opinions – especially why Pollock and not Picasso ;) – but honestly a fresh and straight view, and underneath the surface a little bit dark too. Great!
