Gucci’s new look promoted by Alessandro Michele is simply impossible to be ignored. I admit that this particular mix of exotism, decadence, vintage glamour, hipsterism and granny-chic style has something catchy. Yet, as we know, any idea has to be put within a story in order to make real sense. In this case, the Gucci Spring Summer 2016 Ad Campaign, shot by Glen Luchford, is not only the coherent framework to display all the beautifully crafted garments and accessories of the historic Italian label, but also the perfect story to bring them alive. And to make them more coveted than ever.

After Xavier Dolan charmingly modeled Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2025 collection for the 5th anniversary issue of Essential Homme, in its turn GQ Korea puts the luxury brand in sharp light for an ultra polished presentation. The sober elegant outfits, designed by Kim Jones, bear an artistic touch inspired by Christopher Nemeth.
Christopher Nemeth was an iconic figure on the British fashion scene, an artist turned into fashion designer, whose signature ‘rope motif’ was smartly interpreted by Kim Jones for the Louis Vuitton Fall 2015 Men collection.

Joseph Kosuth is one of the pioneers of conceptual and installation art. The creator of language-based works connected with broader fields as philosophy, psychology and literature, Kosuth constantly investigates the role of language and meaning within art. Neon installation, a kind of a ‘democratic’ medium used by Kosuth in many art projects, takes new dimensions at Sean Kelly Gallery New York which currently hosts a Joseph Kosuth major retrospective.
‘Agnosia, an Illuminated Ontology‘ reunites over 40 of Joseph Kosuth works dating from 1960s to the present. The neon words and pictograms covering walls, ceiling and columns in a total architectural effect, propose the experience of an exquisite space opened to visitors till December 19.

The underwater fashion editorial in How to Spend It magazine delivers a spectacular and brave story that sinks designer clothes (Kenzo, Alexander McQueen, Jimmy Choo) in salty waters of Bahamas surrounded by real sharks. Images are stunning, I guess there was excitement and great fun anyway!
