This week, Gucci presented its Cruise 2019 collection at Les Alyscamps in Arles, France. Designer Alessandro Michele’s bold styles ranging from Marie Antoinette-like looks to dark-and-devious details proved the house’s dedication to daring style and diversity. But the fashion wasn’t the only highlight. Set in the Roman necropolis, the show began with an ignited line of fire down the runway. Full of ancient references, the setting provided an unforgettable backdrop for the new collection’s debut.

Tiffany Zabludowicz currently runs Times Square Space, a unique exhibition site in the heart of Times Square at 1500 Broadway. This winter, Times Square Space hosted “Stray,” a group exhibition of sculpture by Kelly Akashi, Ivana Bašić, Hayden Dunham, Marguerite Humeau, and Pamela Rosenkranz, located on the 14th floor with near-panoramic views of the neighborhood’s skyscrapers. And on view now through June 21 is “Tesseract,” a solo exhibition by Signe Pierce. "One thing that’s very important to me is to support artists of my generation and to work with artists of my generation. That I understood from a young age. Obviously, sometimes I’m interested in other artists who have emerged, but working with emerging artists allows you to actually make an impact on the art of your time. You get to have conversations with wonderful people who are around your age and making art. That’s the best." - Tiffany Zabludowicz

Last week, the Molteni Group hosted a private dinner party in celebration of its newest flagship store located at 160 Madison Avenue.

The space was designed by Vincent Van Duysenysen, who describes the project as something that “brings Italian style and elegance into a classic New York building.” The flagship store is the premiere location to offer Molteni&C, UniFor , and Dada, all three of the Molteni Group’s brands.

To commemorate this unique model, Parmigiani Fleurier revealed its newest model, Bugatti Type 390, that shines with stunning design details to match the tones and materials highlighted on the car.

#DesignDetails: We’ve come to look forward to new additions of Louis Vuitton's Objets Nomades collection each year. The ever-expanding series of wanderlust-filled furniture is inspired by the house’s roots in the art of travel. Past design collaborators have included nendo, Maarten Baas, Marcel Wanders, Patricia Urquiola, Tokujin Yoshioka, and others. This spring and summer, the collection is travelling around the U.S. for the very firs time making stops most recently in Houston, and going on to Los Angeles (in late May), Chicago (in July) and Toronto (in September). Today on Whitewall.art, check out our interview with Patrick Reymond of Atelier Oï, who is behind the Swing Boat, Hammock, Spiral Lamp, Belt Chair, and Tabouret Stool of the Objets Nomades collection.
#MagazineMonday: This week we're looking back at our summer 2016 interview with Co-President of the Judd Foundation and daughter of Donald Judd, Rainer Judd. For the story, photographer Steve Benisty captured Rainer at home with authentic Judd editions in bright colors named raspberry red, traffic yellow, black blue, and traffic orange. She told us: "What’s amazing to me is that it wasn’t until he’s in his 40s that he made the first bed. At this point, he’s got like a PhD in proportion, in scale, in color. So he’s making furniture with incredible awareness of human scale and proportions. I think that’s what a lot of people don’t understand about the furniture when they see it. A lot of people are sensitive to the way it sits in the space. It’s probably speaking to a primal relationship that they have with scale and proportions that are inherent. My dad talked a lot about scale and about how civilization hasn’t even really started the conversation about scale. He already knew that by the time he started making furniture."

#FashionFocus: Paris Fashion Week wrapped up yesterday with a number of stunning collection debuts. Over the past week, we've seen exceptional offerings from brands like CHANEL, Giambattista Valli Official, Saint Laurent, BALENCIAGA,
and Louis Vuitton. This week on whitewall.art, we're giving you a look at those and more.
For Van Cleef & Arpels, time is synonymous with poetry. The artistic challenge is to capture its fleeting essence without ever restricting it. Thanks to a complex Retrograde movement which animates its dial, the Pont des Amoureux timepiece tells the story of two lovers who meet for a kiss at noon and midnight.
#DesignDetails: Last week, Fifteen Hudson Yards—the much anticipated residential tower in Hudson Yards New York designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro with the Rockwell Group—topped out at 900 feet. Within the 28-acre brand new neighborhood developed by Related Companies, it will join soon to be icons like The Shed (also designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro) and The Vessel designed by Thomas Heatherwick.
#MagazineMonday: The Armory Show opens this week in New York, and with it fairs, exhibitions, and events around the city. In anticipation of The Armory Show's site-specific installation by JR Artist debuting Wednesday, we're throwing it back to our Summer 2014 cover story by the artist.
Known for his monumental black-and-white portraits plastered in cities around the world, and coming off his recent Oscar nomination for "Faces Places," JR is creating a 25 feet high installation on the exterior of Pier 94, with the support of the fair, Artsy, and Jeffrey Deitch. Entitled "SO CLOSE," it replaces the faces in images of Ellis Island with those in the Zaatari Syrian refugee camp.

#WristList: Louis Vuitton's new timepiece, the Tambour Moon Mystérieuse Flying Tourbillon, has an unparalleled enigmatic style. Developed in the 19th century, the mysterious movement makes the hands of the watch appear to levitate. The watchmaker combined the optical illusion combined with a flying tourbillon escapement, thanks to a mechanism of sapphire crystals. Arranged in a linear form, the co-axial double barrel is concealed by the LV monogram flower situated at 12 o’clock. This lightweight creation features two stylistic effects which make the watch appear to float in mid-air: the absences of connection between the winding crown and double barrel, and the choice of a fling tourbillon, adorned with the monogram flower.
#MustSee: In Los Angeles gearing up for the Oscars this week? Make sure to check out some of the exhibitions on view around the city's top galleries. Damien Hirst is showing all new work at Gagosian. Mark Bradford is having his first hometown show in 15 years at Hauser & Wirth. All new paintings by Markus Amm are on view at David Kordansky Gallery). And hard to miss, standing 43 feet tall in front of The Standard, Hollywood is Zoe Buckman's public neon "Champ," presented by Art Production Fund and alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet.

#FashionFocus: Milan Fashion Week 2018 came and went with an array of unforgettable collections. Now on whitewall.art, we’re highlighting the impressive collections, impactful shows, and immersive presentations that dealt with themes of identity (and included modeled drags and human heads), subcultures, and nocturnal panorama from Gucci, Moncler, and Prada.
Milan Fashion Week came and went, but certain presentations resonated with the fashion community far longer. Below, we’ve included some of our favorites.
Today in Paris, Dior showed its Fall/Winter 2018 collection at Musée Rodin. Powerful and thought-provoking, the show’s primary star was its set. Creatively clad with protest messages, the immersive environment was a smart collage of slogans, magazine and newspaper cutouts, famous political quotes, and more—all geared to gender equality. Now on whitewall.art, we take you to the immersive set, and give you a glimpse at the new collection.
For the start of Paris Fashion Week, Dior showed its Fall/Winter 2018 collection today at Musée Rodin. We take you to the set, and in the new collection.
#DesignDetails: This Thursday, Chris Schanck's "Unhomely" opens at Friedman Benda in New York. The Detroit-based designer is known for creating imaginative pieces at the cross-section of sculpture and furniture. Referencing Art Deco, Egyptian, and Aztec iconography as well as science fiction and fantasy genres, his use of the "Alufoil" technique gives his work a space-age edge. “In my work, I take inspiration from the people and forms around me and dip them into a futuristic skin. These pieces are proudly irregular, they are a spectacle of imperfection and they shine in their own alien skin,” says Schanck.
#MagazineMonday: With Paris Fashion week kicking off tomorrow, we're looking back at our interview with Etienne Russo, the visionary behind some of the most epic and transformative fashion shows and events in recent memory. With his event company villa eugénie, Russo has not just upped the ante, but expanded the possibilities and expectations of an immersive experience. For Moncler he has created a Valentine’s Day–themed presentation of ski style set on moving platforms with models taking the place of truffles in a reimagined oversized box of chocolates. For when Thom Browne, a narrative of heartbreak staged in a Victorian operating theater as snow falls from above. For CHANEL, a rocket ready for blastoff within the Grand Palais of Paris. “For me, art is a window—a window that takes you to another world. It makes you question, travel, or dream,” said Russo.

#WristList: Over the weekend, we were in Miami for the first-ever Watches & Wonders event in the Miami Design District. There, we got a closer look at the new Royal Oak RD#2 from Audemars Piguet. The ultra-thin model boasts a perpetual calendar complication. Measuring in as the thinnest of its kind on the market today, it took five years to create.
