Leading fashion houses continue to play musical chairs with their creative directors as Roberto Cavalli announced the departure of Peter Dundas last Wednesday.

It seems to be all talk-talk at the moment, but various sources claim that American artist Sterling Ruby has been called by bestie creative director at Calvin Klein, Raf Simons, to help revitalise the brand. According to Page Six, Sterling will help design Simons’ vision to transform the store on Madison Avenue in New York into a “vast gallery-like space.” It wouldn’t be the first time the two friends collaborated together. In 2014, Sterling and Simons teamed up on Dior’s fall/winter menswear collection. The former Dior designer, Raf Simons, was appointed to Calvin Klein in August this year.
 #2  Peter Dundas Leaves Roberto Cavalli

After only a year and a half, Roberto Cavalli’s creative director left the fashion house; or as Fashionista puts it “the industry’s game of creative director musical chairs continues.” The designer’s exit is a first step in a total reorganization of the company, according to sources, as many fashion houses struggle to remain relevant in a changing fashion landscape.

Netflix has recently released a documentary on eminent Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang. Titled “Sky Ladder: The Art Of Cai Guo-Qiang”, we follow the artist as he creates the piece “Sky Ladder” in secret in a small Chinese fishing village at night, while reflecting on the history of gunpowder. “Sky Ladder” is one of the artist’s most influential and spectacular pieces. Featuring a 1,650 foot-tall ladder attached with explosives, it seems to ascend to the heavens the moment the sculpture is ignited.
