Fondation Louis Vuitton In Tune With The World

3 Must-See Exhibitions This Summer

In case you want to upgrade your fashionable/cultural knowledge this summer, there are some pretty inspiring exhibitions to visit. There’s of course the ‘Heavenly bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ expo at the MET which is highly recommended. ‘Margiela, the Hermès Years’ moved from Antwerp to Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, also highly recommended. In Palais Galleria, there’s a retrospective of Martin Margiela, focussing on the label’s signature pieces, archive examples and rare interviews with the designer. Fondation Louis Vuitton, the Christian Dior Museum in Granville and the Design Museum (London) also have something very interesting in store for us.

In Tune with the World

Fondation Louis Vuitton brought together several artists, active in different mediums to share their view on the place of mankind in the universe and the relations between people, animals and even minerals. A first series presents the work of Japanese artist Takashi Murakami. He creates a dual world, combining Kawaii aesthetics with references to his country’s trauma, such as the atomic bomb and the tsunami. A second series includes the creations of 28 French and international artists.

30 years of treasures

There’s honestly nothing more realistic than experiencing an exhibition in its natural habitat. That’s one of the reasons why the Christian Dior Museum is such a unique place. Villa Les Rhumbs in Granville celebrates its 30 years as a museum in 2018 with an exhibition that pays an homage to the creations and inspirations of Christian Dior.

Azzedine Alaïa: the Couturier

Azzedine Alaïa unfortunately passed away in November last year, but his mark on the fashion industry will never be forgotten. Therefore the Design Museum in London pays homage to one of this and last century’s greatest designers. This exhibition is so special because it was conceived and co-curated with Alaïa himself before his death. It gives insights into his incredible journey from sculptor to couturier, his non-conformist nature and his infectious energy for fashion, friendship and the female body.
