While you prepare your bikinis for the holidays and you feel the summer vibes stronger than ever, this is what happen in the fashion, art and pop culture world.
1. Jacquemus x Nike
We have restocked, yes. Although many ran, like true fashionistas, to finish off all the stock of this capsule on the same day of the parade at La Camargue, in that sumptuous landscape of salt and left, latecomers like me, without the opportunity to react, there is no problem; Fashion usually gives second opportunities for fashion addicts. And if the capsule is available now, online, with new models that start at 40 dollars.
According to Simon, this collaboration’s main objective is to provide ultra-feminine figures for athletics with sensual neutral colors that stylize the silhouettes to the maximum. The most exciting thing is that a wide range of sizes will make it accessible to all. The restock is available on official sites as well as in retail store.
2. Frida Kahlo @ Palais Galliera
This fall, the Palais Galliera celebrates Frida Kahlo (July 6, 1907-July 13, 1954), one of the most recognized and influential artists of the 20th century. She is undoubtedly one of the most influential figures in art and fashion, being one of the artists who used the language of fashion to express artistic identity, adapting it to her personality.
This exhibition will have 200 objects from the Casa Azul, the house where Frida was born and raised, including clothing, accessories, correspondence, cosmetics, medicines, and orthopedics. When the artist died in 1954, these personal effects were sealed by her husband, the Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, and were not discovered until fifty years later, in 2004.
This was accompanied by her iconic pieces, colorful dresses, corsets, and certain prostheses with the artist’s touch that, more than objects of continuity, were objects with a deep history, part of her life and pain.
The visit continues with a capsule exhibition from September 15 to December 31, 2022, which considers Frida Kahlo’s influence on contemporary fashion and how she has remained an icon and source of inspiration for many designers.
3. Nathy Peluso X Desigual
Desigual is a Spanish brand known for its diverse identity and unique Spanish designs; It opted for the star of Latin pop music, strongly conquering the European market, yes, we speak of Nathy Peluso, who has destroyed many with her single Business Woman.
“Life is cool,” its hallmark announces that its next advertising campaign will be in black and white and that it will have the Argentine singer Nathy Peluso as the protagonist.
The campaign will be unveiled on September 21st, with Txema Yeste as a photographer and Pau López as a video director. With its commitment to black and white, for the first time in its more than 35 years of life, which is controversial for the brand that is well known for its colors and original mezcals, it wants to show us that it is taking a step forward to the new generations and to reinvent themselves.
4. Damien Hirst BURN OR BURN
Damien Hirst is already a major actor in the world of NFT and for his project, The Currency, he left the choice to collectors to keep the NFT or the physical painting and since the deadline is passed, the unselected pieces, any of the physical works of art that have not been collected, meaning the ones collectors choose to keep as NFT, will be burned.
The destruction of the works of art will occur during an exhibition, also titled The Coin, at London’s Newport Street Gallery from September 9.
“The works of art will be burned at a specific time each day during the performance of the show. These times will be published in advance”, reads a statement from the artist.
The artist is no stranger to doing ephemeral works to encourage his followers, so we will wait a lot to talk about it after the summer, he will indeed have one or another surprise for us, and we hope that this time he will give us more time to talk.
