Art Stuff 27 Jan 2020

Have you been partying hard with your art girls this week? Hey, we don’t blame you! But, did you know that while you were having one too many cocktails on a work night, the art world was making a splash in the news? Lucky for you, we’ve got the lowdown on everything you missed this week!

Judy Chicago Transforms The Dior Show

In case you’ve been living under a rock this week, we thought we’d remind you that Judy Chicago took over the Dior couture show. Creating embroidered banners and a womb shaped runway, the artist asked the fashion world: “What Would Happen If Women Ruled The World?”

 

German Socialite Accused Of Profiting From False Art Sales

Last year it was Anna Delvey, this year it’s…Angela Gulbenkian. According to The Art Newspaper complaints have been filed against Gulbenkian – who married into the legendary art family that founded Lisbon’s Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation – of fraudulently selling an Andy Warhol print, taking the money without producing the art. This is the second case against her, after a similar claim over a Yayoi Kusama pumpkin rocked the art world last year. Our eyes are peeled to see how this one turns out…

FASHION

Jean Paul Gaultier Retires From Fashion

It’s with a heavy heart that we have to tell you that you won’t be seeing JPG on the runway anytime soon. The legend’s couture show this week was his way of saying goodbye to a 50-year fashion career. That said, he did say on twitter that Haute Couture will continue with a new concept, and we can’t wait to see what that might be….

 

Balenciaga To Return To Couture

And as we say goodbye to one, we say HELLO to another. After a 52 year hiatus, Balenciaga’s Demna Gvasalia has announced that the brand will now return to haute couture in Fall 2020, meaning that we’re already counting the days until the next couture week…

Creative freedom and expression – at times spattered and hand-painted, with mismatched buttons, ‘collaged’ ruffles, done and yet undone – is contrasted with the discipline of form, silhouette and utility found in the examples of workwear and the uniform, motifs #MiucciaPrada turns to once again.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣The #MiuMiuSS20 campaign featuring @BellaHadid was photographed and filmed at the house of Spanish sculptor Xavier Corberó.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Photography by Call This Number (@callthis_number): @Steve__Mackey & @DouglasHartFilm ⁣⁣ ⁣Art Direction and Styling by #KatieGrand (@KEGrand)⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣Head over to our Stories for more.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣#MiuMiu⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣#MiuMiuCasaCorbero

You may have seen an image of Bella Hadid covered in paint on your IG feed. Well, that’s because the model shot the latest Miu Miu ad-campaign in the house of Spanish sculptor Xavier Corbero. The brand explains: “Creative freedom and expression – at times spattered and hand-painted, with mismatched buttons, ‘collaged’ ruffles, done and yet undone – is contrasted with the discipline of form, silhouette and utility found in the examples of workwear and uniform.” Perfect for art girls then!

You Can Now Have Breakfast At Tiffany’s In London

The scene at last week’s @elledecor A-List luncheon with @tiffanyandco. Did you know that the Blue Box Café at 727 Fifth is the most booked restaurant in America? Not surprising given the gorgeous decor by @delphinereedkrakoff (A new A-List inductee!) There are only a handful of American creative geniuses who have successfully led one fashion behemoth, let alone two. Everything Reed and Delphine have touched at Tiffany is modern and lust worthy and covetable and fabulous. And the home collection, once de rigeur as a sign of domestic taste and style, is back with a seriously cool vengeance. From silver to-yos to the bamboo flatware of my dreams (here’s looking at you @alexsviewpoint) I want it all! #tiffanyandco

UK-based Audrey fans rejoice, Harrods is opening a Tiffany’s cafe! The Blue Box Cafe opens on February 15 and will serve breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner.
