Furthermore, Constantin Brancusi’s art was highlighted in the February-March 1999 issue of Trussardi’s International Review of Art and Culture, « Cahiers d’Art / Collezione MODA/I », which juxtaposed Constantin Brancusi’s most famous sculptures, such as « The Endless Column », and Trussardi-designed pieces.

Moreover, Karl Lagerfeld once said : « facebook® is a flawless object ; for me it’s like a Brancusi ».
