While you’re checking the next arty destination for this summer, this is what happened for this summer’s week in the art world, fashion, and pop culture.
1. Terry O’Neil “STARS.”
This is the perfect plan for you for those who want to take refuge from this coming summer’s hot days and think that the Nordic countries are a good idea for this summer. Fotografiska museum in Stockholm, which is entirely dedicated to photography, this summer has a great Terry O’Neill retrospective which opened its doors on June 18th, with iconic portraits of Brigitte Bardot, Mick Jagger, Audrey Hepburn, Frank Sinatra, David Bowie, The Beatles, Kate Moss and many more a shower of stars.
Terry O’Neill is a British photographer who is one of the most famous in the world; from the 1960s until he died in 2019, he photographed countless Hollywood stars, music legends, fashion icons, members of royalty, and athletes—being one of the photographers who was immersed in the star system, with a vast collection of iconic images of fashion, art, and pop culture. Still, the particularity of this exhibition is that it will be the most extensive retrospective ever made for this photographer, with exclusive access to his archives and several unpublished photographs not known to the public. Indeed an experience where the viewer can immerse himself in this artist’s universe and enter the chronology of his images.

2. Valentino Haute Couture
Last Friday, Rome dressed up to kick off the Italian Haute Couture week. Still, the VALENTINO brand starred in the España and Mignanelli square, the dream show that left many dreaming and spectacularly shown with more than 755 guests and 102 looks that allowed the city of Rome to enter the world of Haute Couture with that Piccioli Rock touch.
A theatrical performance in the middle of Rome.
The models down the majestic stairs dress the Mignanelli square with many block colors look and much elegance mixing with the urban landscape of Rome; the romantic cuts evoked certain silhouettes in the form of cocoons central theme of this year that sought to give the nod to Valentino DNA. For example, the first look was inspired from the 1956’s party model, the brand made it clear that it seeks to seduce all those fashion lovers but who are faithful to the Italo style of the 50s but with that plus of Piccioli and we love it.
3. The Devil wears Prada Musical
Fancy Alert! This summer came to the preview of the fanciest musical of the season (I see Miranda looking at my Hawaiian sandals at this moment). If it is a reality, and for those who have the opportunity to take a walk around Chicago’s Broadway, it is the perfect and fancy plan for this summer.
The billboard runs from July 19t to August 21st; It stars Beth Leavel as Miranda Priestly, played by Meryl Streep in the movie version; her director is Anna D. Shapiro, with music by John Lennon. What? Yes. It gives it a very dynamic and fun twist; The preview will be for five weeks at the James M. Nederlander Theater, in Chicago, so if you are around, enjoy this piece of theater that will surely give a lot to talk about.
4. Kate Moss X Zara
If something positive left us after the divorce of Johnny Deep is the reappearance of our beloved fashion icon Kate Moss, who came back stronglier than ever. In the company of the king of marketing, Zara was not going to let her go this time, so she was the new guest for the brand’s premium capsule, and that’s how one hot day in July, Kate appeared on our screens while you were looking for that piece that you were missing. The 90’s retro boom is indeed very present and Zara took this boom to another level by inviting one of the inevitable icons of this era. The capsule is called Into the Night and Into the Classic and includes 37 pieces: 25 clothes, 8 pairs of shoes, and 4 accessories. The items come in a wide range of prices, starting at $29.90. To confirm the style, the brand turned to Emmanuelle Alt, the former fashion and editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, to act as creative consultant. Of this new collection. Nothing to say. This is a true Zara goal.
