BVLGARI ROMA: TRAVEL TALES FOR BEAUTY LOVERS

Art Since the house’s founding in 1884, the majestic beauty of Rome with its archaeological, artistic, and cultural heritage has provided Bvlgari, one of its most storied purveyors of luxury and style, with an inexhaustible source of inspiration.

As editor and artistic director Jan Králiĉek states in the Preface, “You will understand how and why the curves of a building are mirrored in a necklace, and how the detail of a mythical painting unfolds into the story of an iconic bracelet or how the dyadic character of a building can be reflected in something as intimate and subtle as a ring. ”This portable volume takes the reader on an unprecedented historical, artistic, and emotional tour of the city. In addition to an actual guide to landmarks and monuments, the narration is enriched by short stories by some of the best-known Roman authors from the world of contemporary Italian literature, inspired by the most iconic locations in the city. The book is further enhanced by contributions from figures linked to the city by birth, by adoption, or by mere passionate attachment including renowned names from fashion, cinema, sport, and music like Anna Della Russo, Lily Aldridge, Ennio Morricone, Roberto Rossellini, Boy George, and Francesco Vezzoli. This unique book is for lovers of and visitors to Rome whose level of sophistication far exceeds the typical city guide.

PALOMA FAITH  RELEASES ‘GOLD’

PALOMA FAITH RELEASES ‘GOLD’

Music Ahead of the release of her fifth studio album Infinite Things, Paloma Faith today shares the latest single and video from the project ‘Gold’ - out now via RCA Records.    For the music video I was about 2.5 months pregnant and it was a heatwave of 38 degrees.... I still hadn’t told anyone I was pregnant so I had to pretend it was all fine, which would have been ok... if I wasn’t hanging off a giant yellow digger! It was physically demanding but the people who worked on the video and the other dancers were joyous and kept me so buoyant I didn’t realise until I got home I was shattered!” - Paloma   Stream the track here: https://smarturl.it/GoldPF   A slice of powerful pop perfection, ‘Gold’ is a glittering dedication to self-belief. Reflecting Paloma’s renewed positive outlook, the single provides the perfect escape from everyday woes. ‘Gold’ also arrives today with a riotous video filmed in Hackney. Clad in gold boxer-shorts, a voluminous pink ball-gown and biker boots accessorized with a giant pair of bolt cutters, Paloma looks dressed to dominate in the fiery video. ‘Gold’ follows the singer, a choir and a host of dancers using an abandoned building-site as their stage for a dramatic performance of the single. Filmed whilst she was in the early stages of her pregnancy, Paloma performed all of her own stunts for the video.    Speaking of the making of ‘Gold’, Paloma said: “‘Gold’ is the only song on the album which wasn’t recorded in my basement. It was recorded at Steve Mac’s studio, who penned the song with the wonderful Sigrid. As a result it embodies freedom and joy and a celebration of life, perfect escapism for a time when we need to remember we are free spirits. ‘Gold’ is a song about how the spirit conquers everything and whatever you are going through your true virtues are inside you. For the music video I was about 2.5 months pregnant and it was a heatwave of 38 degrees.... I still hadn’t told anyone I was pregnant so I had to pretend it was all fine, which would have been ok... if I wasn’t hanging off a giant yellow digger! It was physically demanding but the people who worked on the video and the other dancers were joyous and kept me so buoyant I didn’t realise until I got home I was shattered!”   Infinite Things saw Paloma work with a small group of long-time and new collaborators including the producers Patrick Wimberly and Detonate, songwriters Ed Harcourt, Starsmith, Tre Jean Marie alongside the producer and songwriter MNEK and friend Josef Salvat. This record is more than an album about relationships. It’s a rumination on sickness and loss. It’s about finding your way back to romance within a long term relationship. It’s her most confident record yet from a female artist who’s been in the game for two decades.   Talking about Infinite Things Paloma said: “I'm trying to relinquish the expectation, that a lot of people are raised with, that the only good life is a happy one. I don't think that's realistic. It's about the peaks and troughs because if you didn't have one you wouldn't recognise the other."   ‘Gold’ marks the latest unveiling from Infinite Things following ‘Last Night On Earth’, ‘Falling Down’, and the poignant ‘Better Than This’. Arriving accompanied by a video directed by David Wilson, ‘Better Than This’ continued to showcase Paloma’s evolution as an artist. The visual laid Paloma against a backdrop of vignettes of human error which historically continuously repeat. The video saw her shine a light on prevalent issues including climate emergency, police brutality, race and class divide and the injustices of war.    2021 will also see Paloma hitting the road again for a huge 26 date UK tour including two nights at London’s iconic Palladium. Full dates below & more info here.   This is a new Paloma Faith, an artist who has retreated within herself and found not the careful, polished veteran of show business - but the 22-year-old art student being led by her own creativity.   Catch Paloma live when she embarks on her UK 2021 tour next September.

Retrospective exhibition Giuseppe Penone postponed

Art The retrospective exhibition of the Italian artist Giuseppe Penone (1947) is postponed to a later date that is still to be determined. The exhibition was originally planned from 28 November 2020 to 5 April 2021. The decision has been made in close consultation with the artist and is the result of the new measures - announced by the Dutch government on 28 September 2020 - and uncertainties surrounding the corona virus. Due to the postponement, the planned press preview on 26 November 2020 will also not take place."We were delighted to show Giuseppe Penone's work at Voorlinden," explains director Suzanne Swarts. "His work is true poetry and stimulates all our senses. Particularly in the present time of being at a distance, in which our relation with nature is under pressure, we would have loved to show his work. Now that our mobility is limited, we are waiting for the right moment to share his art with a large audience."   Giuseppe Penone and Voorlinden: For Giuseppe Penone, nature - and trees in particular - is both subject and material. In his sculptures, installations and drawings he uses tree trunks, leaves, marble and leather. With his poetic oeuvre he shows us our intimate connection with nature, and he makes us aware of its creative and transforming cycle and forces. The exhibition includes both early and recent work and stimulates all your senses. Iconic sculptures and immersive art installations alternate with works of a modest and intimate format. Voorlinden has been following Giuseppe's work for a long time. In the 1990s, his bronze sculpture Biforcazione(1991) became part of the Clingenbosch sculpture garden. Giuseppe's work emphasizes and reinforces Voorlinden's relationship between art and nature. Surrounded by his oeuvre you feel closer to nature than ever.

Vans and MoMA Debut Second Installment of Footwear and Apparel Featuring Works of Art by Edvard Munch, Jackson Pollock, Lybov Popova and Faith Ringgold

Accessories Following the September debut collaboration, Vans, the original action sports brand, and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) are proud to launch a second installment of footwear and apparel. The latest iteration of the Vans and MoMA collaboration takes inspiration from impactful works of art by artists Edvard Munch, Jackson Pollock, Lybov Popova and Faith Ringgold. A diverse selection of work by these artists has been thoughtfully translated onto Vans Classic Footwear and apparel styles that will be available to shop worldwide on November 11.   “Our collaboration with MoMA is a true partnership that involved working together to select both the works and footwear to ensure an authentic connection between the art and the canvas footwear models we chose,” said Angie Dita, Vans Head of Global Footwear Design for Lifestyle Footwear. “Faith Ringgold worked closely with both the Vans design and MoMA teams to story tell through the details, bringing in quilted borders to contextualize her work atop Vans.”      Edvard Munch, whose best-known work, ‘The Scream 1895’, captures the “infinite scream of nature” and angst. A print version of this work has been carefully captured on each of the canvas panels of the Vans Era in a repeat pattern that can also be found on the Old Skool backpack, short sleeve tee and pullover hoodie.    ackson Pollock was a pioneer of action painting, flinging and pouring ropes of paint onto his surfaces in a decidedly physical way. Pollock’s ‘One: Number 31, 1950’ has transformed the Vans Authentic with an all-over application atop the canvas and across the sidewalls and is complimented by a digitally printed short sleeve button-down and camper style hat.    Popova approached painting as an act of “construction” using color, line and shape to create dimensional work that expressed movement and dynamism. For the Vans MoMA collaboration, Popova’s ‘Untitled, 1917’ has been applied to the Vans Sk8-Hi using each medial and lateral side to translate her avant-garde vision across the hi-top model which is found on complimenting fleece and ringer tee options.    Faith Ringgold is an acclaimed painter, writer, sculptor, performance artist, educator and activist whose body of work highlights her experiences with racism and social injustice. Vans and MoMA. Curators worked closely with Ringgold to uplift her feminist poster art including ‘Woman Free Yourself 1971’ which brings bold type to the left side of the Vans Era while ‘Freedom Woman Now 1971’ poster art has been applied to the right side to form the affirmative demands that were called during the arrest of Angela Davis. Ringgold’s powerful words can be found on a reversible bucket hat and long sleeve tee. A second footwear style, the Classic Slip-On is inspired by Ringgold’s first series of abstract paintings, ‘The Windows of the Wedding’ which was made in the 1970’s. Inscribed on the sidewall is a quote. From Ringgold, printed in her handwriting, that states “My mother said I’d have to work twice as hard to go half as far.”   Vans and MoMA are proud to come together to instill creative expression and uplift art education through special product this fall and holiday.

TRIENNALE MILANO AND THE FONDATION CARTIER POUR L'ART CONTEMPORAIN INAUGURATE A CULTURAL PARTNERSHIP UNPRECEDENTED IN EUROPE

Exhibition Triennale Milano and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain will join forces for a period of eight years to present a rich and shared program of exhibitions and live shows in Milan. To inaugurate this partnership, both institutions have chosen to present, from October 17, 2020 to February 7, 2021, the exhibition Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle, dedicated to the extraordinary work of the Brazilian artist. Since the 1970s, she has been devoting her life to photographing and protecting the Yanomami, one of Brazil’s largest indigenous groups, who are now more than ever threatened by illegal gold minors and the Covid-19 pandemic. This landmark collaboration represents a new form of cultural partnership in Europe between public and private institutions.     A 1,300 m2 space within Triennale Milano will be devoted to the presentation of exhibitions conceived in close collaboration between the two institutions or inspired by the programming of the Fondation Cartier in Paris. Triennale Milano and Fondation Cartier share a common vision of contemporary artistic creation and are both dedicated to developing a resolutely multidisciplinary and international program open to all fields such as contemporary art, architecture, design, fashion, cinema, science and philosophy. Their shared commitment to current major environmental issues has led in 2019 to the presentation of The Great Animal Orchestra by Bernie Krause and United Visual Artists, featured in Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival at Triennale Milano, as part of the XXII International Exhibition. The Fondation Cartier has long had a close relationship with the Italian contemporary art scene, in particular with artists such as Alessandro Mendini, Enzo Mari, Andrea Branzi, Giuseppe Penone, and more recently Formafantasma. These encounters have given rise to major exhibitions introducing both Parisian and international audiences to the richness of their output. Many works by these exceptional creators are featured in the Fondation Cartier collection. Today more than ever, idea circulation, sharing experiences and, developing cultural networks between European institutions is vital in supporting artists, publicizing their works, and providing a meaningful perspective on the modern world. Within this spirit, Triennale Milano and the Fondation Cartier have joined forces to create new dialogues in support of contemporary creation and thought. This partnership will be inaugurated October 17, 2020 with the exhibition Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle, and will be followed in 2021 with Les Citoyens, Guillermo Kuitca on the collection of the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain. Revealing unprecedented links between the works of the collection, the Argentinian artist takes us on a journey in which he addresses with multiple voices the ideas of ensembles and constellations, groups and individuals. The exhibition becomes a creation in its own right and offers an immersion into the world of Kuitca as well as each of the artists on display.   Triennale Milano: Triennale Milano is an international cultural institution that brings together all forms of art related to contemporary culture: design, architecture, visual arts, and performing arts. It is a place where art and design, creativity and technology, tradition and innovation meet. The institution, chaired by Stefano Boeri, exhibits works by major Italian and international architects, designers and artists. Exhibitions, encounters, conferences and performances punctuate its programming, and provoke reflection on the key problems of our society, which also occupy public debate. Triennale Milano has its own theatre, with international and multidisciplinary programming, and presents a collection of Italian design, as well as a library, archives and a conservation laboratory specializing in contemporary design. Every 3 years, the institution organizes the International Exhibition of Triennale Milano, one of the most important events devoted to design and architecture. The next edition will take place in 2022. On April 2019, Triennale Milano opened the Museo del Design Italiano inside its spaces, highlighting part of its permanent collection: nearly 1,600 pieces amongst the most iconic and representative works of Italian design. Triennale Milano is housed in the Palazzo dell’Arte in Milan. Built in 1933 by architect Giovanni Muzio, it was designed as a flexible, modular space able to accommodate events as well as a museum, or theatrical performances.   Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris: Founded in 1984 by Cartier, the Fondation Cartier offers a unique creative setting for artists from around the world and for the dissemination of works to all audiences. Located in Paris in the iconic building constructed by architect Jean Nouvel and directed by Hervé Chandès, the Fondation Cartier opens its doors to themes rarely dealt with in museums, ranging from the environment to the social sciences and mathematics. It asserts an eclectic and multidisciplinary dimension crossing all areas of contemporary creation and spurring unexpected meetings between artists, scientists, philosophers, musicians and architects. From commissions to exhibitions, the Fondation Cartier supports artists over the long term and establishes a privileged relationship with them. From these exchanges, a unique collection has come to life and grown over time, today including more than 1,600 works by 400 artists of 50 different nationalities. The Fondation Cartier’s exhibitions and collection radiate all around the world: in Europe, especially through the partnership with Triennale Milano, and beyond, notably in China, where the Fondation Cartier maintains privileged links with Shanghai Power Station of Art.   Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle:   October 17 – February 7, 2021 Triennale Milano   Triennale Milano and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain are pleased to present the largest exhibition to date dedicated to the work and activism of Brazilian artist Claudia Andujar. For over five decades, she devotes her life to photographing and protecting the Yanomami, one of Brazil’s largest indigenous groups. While their territory is more than ever threatened today by illegal gold mining aggravated by the propagation of Covid-19, the exhibition Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle has taken on renewed relevance in the context of the humanitarian and environmental crisis exacerbated by the pandemic.   The exhibition: Based on four years of research in the photographer’s archive, this new exhibitioncurated by Thyago Nogueira (head of the contemporary photography department at the Instituto Moreira Salles in Brazil), will focus on her work from this period, bringing together over three hundred photographs, her audiovisual installation as well as a series of Yanomami drawings and a movie. The exhibition will explore Claudia Andujar’s extraordinary contribution to the art of photography as well as her major role as a human rights activist in the defense of the Yanomami. It is divided into two sections reflecting the dual nature of a career committed to both art and activism. The first section presents the photographs from her first seven years living with the Yanomami, showing how she grappled with the challenges of visually interpreting a complex culture. The second features the work she produced during her period of activism, when she began to use her photography as a tool among others for political change.   Claudia Andujar: Claudia Andujar was born in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, in 1931 and currently lives and works in São Paulo. She grew up in Transylvania, which at the time had recently been incorporated to Romania after years of Hungarian domination. During World War II, Claudia’s father, a Hungarian Jew, was deported to Dachau where he was killed along with most of her paternal relatives. Claudia Andujar fled with her mother to Switzerland, immigrated first to the United States in 1946, then to Brazil in 1955 where she began a career as a photojournalist, before becoming an activist. I am connected to the indigenous, to the land, to the primary struggle. All of that moves me deeply. Everything seems essential. Perhaps I have always searched for the answer to the meaning of life in this essential core. I was driven there, to the Amazon jungle, for this reason. It was instinctive. I was looking to find myself.”Claudia Andujar   Interpreting Yanomami Culture: Claudia Andujar first met the Yanomami in 1971 while working on an article about the Amazon for Realidade magazine. Fascinated by the culture of this isolated community, she decided to embark on an in-depth photographic essay on their daily life after receiving a Guggenheim fellowship to support the project, and thanks to the presence of the Italian missionary Carlo Zacquini in the region. From the very beginning, her approach differed greatly from the straightforward documentary style of her contemporaries. The photographs she made during this period show how she experimented with a variety of photographic techniques in an attempt to visually translate the shamanic culture of the Yanomami. Applying Vaseline to the lens of her camera, using flash devices, oil lamps, and infrared film, she created visual distortions, streaks of light, and saturated colors, imbuing her images with a feeling of the otherworldly. Claudia Andujar also developed a series of sober black and white portraits that capture the grace and dignity of the Yanomami. Focusing closely on faces and body fragments, she tightly frames her images, using a dramatic chiaroscuro to create a feeling of intimacy and draw attention to individual psychological states. Alongside the many photographs taken during this period, the exhibition will also present a selection of rare Yanomami drawings. After years photographing the Yanomami herself, Claudia Andujar felt it was important to provide them with the opportunity to represent their own conceptions of nature and the universe. She thus initiated a drawing project, equipping members of the community with markers and paper. A selection of these drawings representing Yanomami myths, rituals, and shamanic visions will be presented in the exhibition.   Political Activism:   By the late 1970s, Claudia Andujar had reached a turning point in her career. The construction of a transcontinental highway in the Amazon, initiated by Brazil’s military government, opened up the region to deforestation as well as invasive agricultural programs, bringing epidemics to the Yanomami and leading to the annihilation of entire communities. This situation reminded her of the genocide in Europe, and its impact on her was such that she decided to deepen her commitment to the Yanomami struggle. In 1978 she founded, with the Italian missionary Carlo Zacquini and the French anthropologist Bruce Albert, the Commissão Pro-Yanomani (CCPY) and began with the Yanomami leader Davi Kopenawa fourteen-year-long campaign to designate their homeland. At this point in her career photography, she put her artistic project aside and used photography primarily as a means to raise awareness and support her cause. In the early 1980s, Claudia Andujar took a series of black and white portraits of the Yanomami as part of a vaccination campaign. They are wearing numbered labels to help identify them for their medical records. The artist was struck by how these labels recalled the numerical tattoos of those “branded for death” during the Holocaust. She later revisited these portraits and created the Marcados series, which reveal the ambiguity inherent in this act of labeling even if it is ultimately for their survival. In the exhibition, we will present previously unseen photographs from this series.   Curator: Thyago Nogueira (head of the contemporary photography department at the Instituto Moreira Salles in Brazil), assisted by Valentina Tong. This exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Instituto Moreira Salles (Brazil) and is supported by the Hutukara Associação Yanomami (Boa Vista) and the Instituto Socioambiental (São Paulo and Boa Vista).   Exhibition catalogue: The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue in French, English, and Italian, presenting the artist’s photographs as well as excerpts from her notebooks and Yanomami drawings. With texts by Claudia Andujar, Thyago Nogueira, and Bruce Albert, it will feature a map of Yanomami territory as well as a timeline documenting the artist’s life and the history of the Yanomami people.   The exhibition's future venues: The exhibition Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle has been presented in 2019 at the Instituto Moreira Salles (Brazil) and in 2020 at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain (Paris). After its presentation at Triennale Milano, it will travel in 2021 to Fundación MAPFRE (Barcelona) and in 2022 to the Fotomuseum Winterthur (Switzerland).   The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain has supported the Yanomami cause and the work of Claudia Andujar for over twenty years. Claudia Andujar and Yanomami artists such as Taniki, Joseca, Ehuana, and Kalepi have participated in several exhibitions and are amongst the artists present in our collection. The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain presented her work for the first time in 2003 in the exhibition Yanomami, Spirit of the Forest. Claudia Andujar renewed her collaboration with the Fondation Cartier in 2012 with the exhibition Histoires de voir: Show and Tell, in which she presented the work of Taniki, the first Yanomami artist to work on paper. In 2013, she participated in the exhibition América Latina, 1960-2013with Marcados, a moving series of id photographs she took during a vaccination campaign she led between 1981 and 1983 throughout Yanomami territory. Thanks to this exhibition dedicated to the work of Claudia Andujar, Triennale Milano has joined forces with the Fondation Cartier through its commitment to the Yanomami and hopes to bring the history, struggles, and daily life of these people to the attention of the Italian public.   For many years, the Fondation Cartier has explored the major issues of our times, including the environment, climate change, the destruction of the animal and plant world, deforestation, and the disappearance of indigenous populations and cultures. Accompanied by artists, intellectuals, and scientists, the Fondation Cartier addresses these issues in exhibitions presented in Paris or in cultural institutions around the world.   Triennale Milano has devoted numerous projects to some of the key themes of contemporary society, such as the relationship between humans and nature, the environment and urban life. The XXII International Exhibition of Triennale MilanoBroken Nature: Design Takes on Humans Survival (March 1 - September 1, 2019) opened up a space for critical reflection on the present and future of our planet. The seminars in preparation for the XXIII edition of the International Exhibition, to be held in 2022, and the support for urban forestry activities are an example of Triennale Milano’s dedication and commitment to these urgent concerns of our times. Triennale Milano and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain will join forces for a period of eight years to present a rich and shared program of exhibitions and live shows in Milan.

This exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Instituto Moreira Salles (Brazil) and is supported by the Hutukara Associação Yanomami (Boa Vista) and the Instituto Socioambiental (São Paulo and Boa Vista).   Exhibition catalogue: The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue in French, English, and Italian, presenting the artist’s photographs as well as excerpts from her notebooks and Yanomami drawings. With texts by Claudia Andujar, Thyago Nogueira, and Bruce Albert, it will feature a map of Yanomami territory as well as a timeline documenting the artist’s life and the history of the Yanomami people.   The exhibition's future venues: The exhibition Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle has been presented in 2019 at the Instituto Moreira Salles (Brazil) and in 2020 at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain (Paris). After its presentation at Triennale Milano, it will travel in 2021 to Fundación MAPFRE (Barcelona) and in 2022 to the Fotomuseum Winterthur (Switzerland).   The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain has supported the Yanomami cause and the work of Claudia Andujar for over twenty years. Claudia Andujar and Yanomami artists such as Taniki, Joseca, Ehuana, and Kalepi have participated in several exhibitions and are amongst the artists present in our collection. The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain presented her work for the first time in 2003 in the exhibition Yanomami, Spirit of the Forest. Claudia Andujar renewed her collaboration with the Fondation Cartier in 2012 with the exhibition Histoires de voir: Show and Tell, in which she presented the work of Taniki, the first Yanomami artist to work on paper. In 2013, she participated in the exhibition América Latina, 1960-2013with Marcados, a moving series of id photographs she took during a vaccination campaign she led between 1981 and 1983 throughout Yanomami territory. Thanks to this exhibition dedicated to the work of Claudia Andujar, Triennale Milano has joined forces with the Fondation Cartier through its commitment to the Yanomami and hopes to bring the history, struggles, and daily life of these people to the attention of the Italian public.   For many years, the Fondation Cartier has explored the major issues of our times, including the environment, climate change, the destruction of the animal and plant world, deforestation, and the disappearance of indigenous populations and cultures. Accompanied by artists, intellectuals, and scientists, the Fondation Cartier addresses these issues in exhibitions presented in Paris or in cultural institutions around the world.   Triennale Milano has devoted numerous projects to some of the key themes of contemporary society, such as the relationship between humans and nature, the environment and urban life. The XXII International Exhibition of Triennale MilanoBroken Nature: Design Takes on Humans Survival (March 1 - September 1, 2019) opened up a space for critical reflection on the present and future of our planet. The seminars in preparation for the XXIII edition of the International Exhibition, to be held in 2022, and the support for urban forestry activities are an example of Triennale Milano’s dedication and commitment to these urgent concerns of our times.

Opening Design Studio by TextielMuseum

Art Have you ever wanted to step into a designer’s shoes for a day? You’ll shortly be able to. Well … into their socks, to be precise. Because from 26 September 2020, visitors to the TextielMuseum in Tilburg will be able to create their own personalised designer socks and scarves on a new state-of-the-art knitting machine. This special experience will take place in the TextielLab, the fully equipped development centre that’s a home-from-home for many well-known designers.   Visitors to the TextielMuseum are invited to reserve a timeslot to make a pair of socks (€20) or a scarf (€120).   To kick off this new activity, which is called Design Studio, the museum is collaborating with Dutch designer Bertjan Pot. Together, they have developed a digital application which enables museum visitors to design their own items around the theme of “colour”. A creative process that is also completely coronavirus-proof!   Bertjan Pot: “A single colour has no meaning. As I see it, colours only count when they’re blending and contrasting with each other. This is something we’re now trying to achieve with this innovative knitting machine. Socks and scarves are basically very simple. It’s the use of colour that ultimately sets them apart.”   Design Studio: Design Studio, which consists of three different spaces, will be a permanent feature within the museum, with each space covering a different phase in the design process: inspiration, design and production. The first ‘inspiration’ space is where you explore the world of leading designer Bertjan Pot, who extends an invitation to get started via a set of design principles. Moving on to the ‘design’ space, it’s time to play with colours to determine an individual design. Finally, in the ‘production’ space, visitors use the workstations to translate ideas, which may include customised text, into digital instructions. These are then sent to the knitting machine for production. It’s a unique experience and opportunity to dip your toes into the world of being a designer. You’ll be able to take your socks home with you, and scarves will be sent on afterwards. Either way, Design Studio knitwear is a fantastic gift, either as a treat for yourself or to give to someone else.   With on-demand fashion, local production, sustainable materials and zero waste now more relevant than ever, Design Studio certainly has its sights on the future of fashion.    https://www.textielmuseum.nl/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI1sLwjsGd7AIVyYBQBh0gUAE7EAAYASAAEgJhqvD_BwE   Have you ever wanted to step into a designer’s shoes for a day?

Daily Paper and Van Gogh Museum Reunite for a Second Collaborative Line

Fashion For the Fall/Winter 2020 season, Daily Paper and the Van Gogh Museum reprise for a second collaboration which sees a selection of legendary Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh’s artwork reinterpreted and reproduced on a collection of winter-ready garments. While the first Daily Paper x Van Gogh Museum explored the subject matter of Van Gogh’s art, for this second collaboration we turn our gaze back upon the artist himself. We hope to inspire and educate a generation by connecting the dots between the old and new. Read the full press release and download the assets below. The Daily Paper x Van Gogh Museum collection is priced from €70 - €280 and will be available at Daily Paper and Van Gogh Museum online websites, both storefronts, and selected retailers worldwide from October 2, 2020, 12 PM CET.   Collection: Van Gogh’s Body of Work Translated into Winter Garments: This sophomore capsule sees the evolution of concepts explored in our debut collection, with several of Van Gogh’s most iconic pieces of artwork executed as graphics on street-ready winter outerwear. New silhouettes this season include Daily Paper’s signature puffer jacket adorned with an allover print of the Dutch artist’s The Potato Eaters (1885) alongside some of his floral compositions. Elsewhere, the Daily Paper cold-weather essentials like the reversible bomber jacket, woven beanie and scarf are elevated through the dual-branded logo that is a hallmark of the collaboration. Alongside sportswear staples like tees and hoodies, other highlights include floral printed denim jeans and tote and two-toned split shirting.   For the Fall/Winter 2020 season, Daily Paper and the Van Gogh Museum reprise for a second collaboration which sees a selection of legendary Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh’s artwork reinterpreted and reproduced on a collection of winter-ready garments.
