James Lee Byars The Golden Tower by Richard Ivey

James Lee Byars The Golden Tower
Venice Biennale 2017

James Lee Byars’s grandest work The Golden Tower has arrived in Venice, and it is safe to say it’s making quite the statement so far. Located right next to the Palazzo Cini, the artwork attracts Biennale 2017 visitors and city wanderers alike. Byars first fantasised about making the luxurious looking piece (which is more than 65 feet tall) back in 1976 and showed it in numerous iterations, yet never before has it been displayed outside in full scale.

Dior Cruise Collection 2018

Dior Cruise Collection 2018

The collection was inspired by the primitive drawings discovered in the Lascaux caves – a network of underground habitats over 200.000 years old. The cave paintings once inspired Monsieur Dior to create prints for his Ovale collection of 1951. Heritage is always key at Dior but Maria Grazia Chiuri is such a clever manipulator of facts: she turned this Dior legacy to her advantage by making the collection about female empowerment once again.

Anna Sui comes to London

Anna Sui comes to London

ui’s style has always drawn from colourful cultural sources – every show is a mishmash of a multitude of influences: from Pre-Raphaelite art and Texan cowgirls to Courtney Love and most recently the 20th century interior designer Elsie de Wolfe for AW17. The Detroit born designer loves old movies, books and the heroes of modern design. Her catwalks reflect her story-telling tendencies, especially through pattern which also borrows from idols such as Zandra Rhodes (who set up the Bermondsey museum) and Thea Porter.
