A film that balances a mix of John Galliano’s personal insights and previously unreleased footage of the creative processes and delves deep into the designer’s inspirations and unveils a nostalgic inner world. The Maison Margiela ‘Artisanal’ 2021 collection is a reflection of the designer’s intertwined love for the outdoors, childhood and storytelling that resulted in a collection that is a thrilling make – believe of his own mind, or a story of a folk character who saw herself through a piece of broken glass scattered throughout the collection.
In his new exhibition the Berlin based, part Danish, part Icelandic artist challenges our conventions of art, nature and cultural institutions, as well as life. Taking place at Fondation Beyeler in Basel, Switzerland, the visitors are invited to navigate the galleries through a network of walkways through a collective experience, where lines between the outdoors and indoors have been removed and the inside is flooded with water from adjacent lily pond, dyed green and filled with life.
Christine Nagel, the nose behind the scent, encapsulates the smell for a joyful, yet mischievous and spicy younger sister full of boldness and attitude. The latest scent in the Twilly d’Hermès trilogy fits in impeccably with the rest of the collection using ginger as one of the notes, but makes it very youthful by combining it with peony, and cedar.
Julien Dossena’s latest collection is perfectly balanced by its unique location – presented on a rooftop of Monaco’s Hexa Grace, designed by Victor Vasarely, with sunny skies and the Mediterranean sea in the background. Underpinned by vibrancy and lively geometric designs, the designer references the architect’s creative language – expressions of solid shapes and bright patterns adorned by elongated silhouettes in shimmering and dynamic pieces.
In 1954 began one of the most prolific periods of Picasso’s art – in three months he produced 15 oil paintings and more than a hundred sketches and prints. Inspired by Eugene Delacroix’s Women of Algiers (1834 and 1849) and using the same thematics but his own expression he created paintings distorting the female shape, saturating them with colour, or returning to his cubist comfort zone and desaturating with grey shades. The special exhibition by the Nationalgalerie of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin showcases Picasso’s alternative perspective on painting and his uniqueness in artistic variation.
