5 Buzzy Moments Where Art and Fashion Collide
From Cindy Sherman’s striking campaign with Marc Jacobs to Dior’s couture show featuring large-scale murals by Italian artist Isabella Ducrot
1. Dior x Isabella Ducrot
Blanketing the walls of Dior’s spring 2024 haute couture show, which took place at Musée Rodin in Paris, was a series of 23 monumental works by the nonagenarian Italian textile artist Isabella Ducrot. These massive depictions of garments, each measuring more than 16 feet in height, were woven on ancient looms by the artisans of the Chanakya ateliers and School of Craft in Mumbai, India. The composition of each was based around a series of irregular, abstract black stripes recalling the weft and warp of the fabric.
2. Loewe x Richard Hawkins
For Loewe’s latest menswear collection presentation during Paris Fashion Week, creative director Jonathan Anderson teamed up with Los Angeles–based painter Richard Hawkins, who created digital collages that recalled arched stained glass windows. Seven of Hawkins’s paintings were hung on the venue’s back wall, creating the effect of an artist’s studio or gallery.
3. Dries Van Noten x Bouke De Vries
Artist Bouke de Vries reclaims broken pots, calling the process “the beauty of destruction,” putting their cracks and fractures under the spotlight instead of hiding them. Four of these stunning works are now on view through March 12 at Dries Van Noten‘s Galerie Quai Malaquais, a new retail concept space devoted exclusively to fragrance, beauty, and accessories in the heart of Paris’s Rive Gauche.
4. Jacquemus x Giacometti
The latest collection of Jacquemus, titled “Les Sculptures,” was unveiled at La Fondation Maeght, a stunning art museum overlooking Saint-Paul de Vence in the south of France, which houses a trove of sculptures by Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti.
5. Marc Jacobs x Cindy Sherman
Cindy Sherman, the iconic American photographer celebrated for her creative self-portraits, is starring in Marc Jacobs’s spring/summer 2024 campaign. To mark the luxury brand’s 40th anniversary, German photographer Juergen Teller captured two of Sherman’s many personas. Debuting on Instagram last Wednesday, the pictures depict Sherman as a polished blonde in a tweed suit standing outside the Marc Jacobs Soho store and as a grungy brunette in black leather pants in the second.
