A noted aesthete, the Tennessee-born McConnico was probably most famous for his set direction of some 20 feature films, most notably 'Diva', Jean-Jacques Beineix’s 1981 César-award-winning stylish thriller.
 
In his earlier days in Paris, he worked in fashion for both Yves Saint Laurent and Ted Lapidus; before becoming better known for his artistic collaborations. Several pieces from his Cactus collection for Daum crystal-maker were presented by French president François Mitterrand to US president George H. W. Bush as a gift of state. McConnico was also the first American to have his work inducted into the Louvre’s Decorative Arts collection.

Latterly, he collaborated with Hermès on the brand’s museum in Tokyo, inside the Renzo Piano-designed building in Ginza. In 2005, he was awarded the  Talent de l’Audace prize from the Sommet du Luxe et de la Création, in recognition of an outstanding career.
 
His funeral service is scheduled for 3.30 PM Tuesday, February 6 at the Grand Coupole of Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris.
