sarpaneva

I recently visited Finland after almost a year. For each visit I’ll try to include some cultural activities and this time I went to see an exhibition about designer and artist Timo Sarpaneva’s works at Design Museum. He is best known for his designs for Iittala, and has also designed the i-logo which is still in use today. I developed a huge obsession for dark green glass, thanks to the glass works above.

The exhibition is running until end of September.

I lost my faith at one point for fashion exhibitions as I wrote earlier. I understand their purpose, it is to serve the masses and promote the brand to the public as a new way of advertisement.

However, there is a difference between retrospective exhibitions and exhibitions organized by the brand. I recently visited at Palais Galleira, which is currently hosting a Martin Margiela retrospective, art directed by Margiela himself. As having an obsession towards fashion archives and history, this exhibitions was truly food to my soul. Margiela’s influence in fashion could be seen so clearly, plus they were showcasing some most precious archive pieces which would be impossible to find anywhere else. I can’t recommend this one enough. MARGIELA / GALLIERA, 1989-2009, Palais Galliera until 15th July 2018

Jean Arp

Fondation Jean Arp / me

With a friend of mine we have a tradition to visit Fondation Jean Arp every once in a while. It requires a bit of travelling, since it is located in the suburbs of Paris in Meudon, but it is a perfect Sunday activity. Mostly we’ve got the space completely for ourselves, and it is such an meditative experience. The place is so quiet and beautiful.

the row aw18 3

My love affair with The Row continues. The latest collection showed together with some unseen sculptures of Isamu Noguchi (!!!) was nothing new from the Olsen sisters, but still even better. Oversized coats, earthy tones and loose pants paired with very subtle and beautifully anonymous accessories is something I could call my uniform already, and I’m definitely going to adopt the wet-hair look and head-to-toe brown into it.

Carmen D’Apollonio – Pot Head Vases

Vase dreaming in human forms. I’m planning to go to a ceramics course and create my own dream vase, I used to do lots of things with my own hands and I can’t think of anything more relaxing.

Christian Dior – Couturier du Rêve exhibition

It is starting to become a trend for fashion brands to host exhibitions, as it is an easy way to communicate about the history and identity of the brand. Just to mention a few; Chloé hosted a Guy Bourdin exhibition in their newly renovated Maison Chloé, Hermès dedicated an exhibition for Leila Menchari‘s window displays, Louis Vuitton’s Voulez, Vogues, Voyages exhibition is currently showing in New York and YSL opened not one, but two museums; one in Paris and one in Marrakesh.

Unfortunately most of the exhibitions have been sadly simple, badly curated and very obviously commercial, as advertising often tends to be. When a product is still in the store, it doesn’t belong to museum.

I want to post only things that I support and I can recommend, which is why I post this picture only now when the Dior exhibition has finished; it was exceptionally bad. Poor John Galliano and his legacy was buried under Maria Grazia Chiuri’s feminism t-shirts.
