Arts & Fashions

Arts & Fashions AG was founded in 2017 from Paolo Riccardo Sarati’s ten years of experience. From a young age he has been passionate about art and in particular the art market, both contemporary and antique, with a focus on the world of design. 

At the foundation of Arts & Fashions AG is a structure that has existed and been built up through contacts and networking for more than 25 years, among art dealers, galleries, international auction houses, collectors and connoisseurs, a work that, for these reasons, from the very beginning manages to find its market position in the difficult and complex world of Art.

Starting with a close collaboration with Milan’s most important Jewish family dealing in carpets, he developed a network of prestigious clients throughout Europe. Subsequently, he forged agreements with antiquarians of international calibre (Giorgio Baratti, Piva; etc.) and closed a deal with a group of auction houses and dealers (Finarte Casa D’aste, Semenzato Venezia) where he was in charge of all European clients and some Italian premier clients until the end of 2011. 

In the following years, in Spain, he approached the world of contemporary art to search for locations and exhibition spaces where he could create exhibitions and events of emerging individual artists, and he also collaborated with some local entities for the sale of works.

The company’s areas of operation are many: management of both private and institutional (Private Banks and Wealth Management) collections, Advisor for important owners of collections, buying and selling works of art, setting up dedicated exhibitions and fairs for its own account and for third parties, searching for works to be included in international auctions and for operators in the sector.

Arts & Fashion in the figure of Paolo Riccardo Sarati expresses all his professionalism and experience acquired over the years, making this activity a guide for all those who want to invest in art, able to direct the buyer in a path of assisted and conscious choice, also for the less experienced collector, thus offering a dedicated service according to each need.

Over the years, it identifies a number of realities in the art world, promotes them and takes care of their exclusive marketing. In addition, it continues important relationships with decades-long customers for both important works and multiples of decorative artists and aimed at selling them to companies that need works of art at an attractive price for their marketing.

 It also enters into agreements with dealers and leading antiquarians for the promotion and research of unpublished works of art on the market; alongside this, it enters into commercial agreements with a number of Family Offices and asset managers who research and purchase works of art on behalf of their top clients.

All these activities woven together over the years have enabled Arts & Fashions AG to grow more and more as a reference point in Switzerland and beyond, in a tangible feedback also in terms of turnover.
