Victoria & Albert Museum Brings Christian Dior Exhibition to the U.K.

LONDON MOMENT: The Victoria & Albert Museum is shifting the spotlight onto Christian Dior for its next major fashion exhibition, opening in February.
The London museum plans to adapt “Christian Dior: Couturier of Dreams,” the popular show that opened last year at Paris’ Musée des Arts Décoratifs, for a U.K. audience. The exhibition will be the largest Dior exhibition held in the country and the V&A’s biggest fashion exhibition since “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.”
The collaboration between the French house and the museum was announced during a cocktail held Sunday evening at the British embassy in Paris.
The show will trace the history of the house and the impact of Christian Dior, and the six artistic directors who succeeded him. A new section will be added that explores Christian Dior’s relationship with Britain, from his fascination with English gardens, Savile Row and British ocean liners, to his circle of London-based clients, including Nancy Mitford and Margot Fonteyn.
“Reimagining this hugely popular exhibition from Paris — as the largest fashion exhibition the V&A has undertaken since ‘Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’ — will shed new light on Dior’s fascination with Britain,” said Tim Reeve, the museum’s deputy director and chief operating officer.
The show will also aim

Albert Watson Photographs New Pirelli Calendar

The Pirelli calendar is produced in limited quantities and can be difficult to obtain, which only adds to its mystery and aura.
The calendar, which often features top models and A-list actresses and celebrities wearing very little clothing or none at all, has a look, theme and choice of talent which rests in the hands of the photographer. The Italian tire company keeps the production under wraps, teasing out bits of information in the weeks and days leading up to the launch.
The first piece of intel: Albert Watson is the shooter of the 2019 calendar images. In what could be a departure from the sexually charged photos of previous years, Watson reportedly had a strong theme that explores the current societal shift in perceptions of success, especially for women. Watson recognized that women today are less judged by others. Rather, they’re guided by their own dreams and values.
Watson wanted to approach the calendar “in a different way to the other photographers, exploring the women with a sense of inquiry to create a situation that’s important for 2019. If you remember anything from this 2019 calendar, you’ll remember that I like to do pure photography, nothing else.” Peter Beard, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Peter

NBA’s Chris Paul Teaming Up With Hook & Albert

NBA players love their dopp kits and Chris Paul is no exception.
So the nine-time All-Star and newest member of the Houston Rockets teamed with men’s accessories brand Hook & Albert to create a capsule collection for fall. It will consist of a backpack, a weekender bag and, yes, a dopp kit.
“It was during my rookie years that the NBA established the dress code,” he said. “And that really allowed guys the opportunity to express themselves. Today, every time you see guys walking in and out of the arena, they’re carrying a dopp kit, weekender or backpack — every single game. When I was a rookie, all I wanted was a Louis Vuitton dopp kit, but then I realized it’s more about something functional.”
So after meeting Hook & Albert founders Adam Schoenberg and Cory Rosenberg, they teamed up to create the capsule.
Paul said since his career requires him to travel extensively, “packing is crazy important and on the road, organization is necessary, but also I like that my accessories reflect my personal style. Even in sweats, a great leather bag, like a watch, gives your look that added touch of luxury.”
Paul said he’s “definitely into fashion,” but likes to “wear clothes

The brand has teamed up with Thread Experiment to design a collection of bedding, targeted exclusively to men. The limited-edition set consists of a comforter, woven herringbone duvet and pillow sham in a navy and white color palette.

This partnership now allows our guy to bring that style inside the home,” said Adam Schoenberg, cochief executive officer of the label, which was founded in 2011 and acquired by Detail Provisions Co. in Dallas in mid-January.

Victoria and Albert Museum to Host Fashion Installations During London Design Festival

DESIGNS ON LONDON: The London Design Festival will have a distinct fashion flavor, with names including Swarovski, Selfridges and Kvadrat taking part in the September showcase.
Swarovski has teamed with designer Kim Thomé on an installation called “Zotem,” which is meant to be a fusion of “totem” and “zoetrope.” The 59-foot tall monolith was created with more than 600 bespoke Swarovski crystals and will stand at the entrance of the V&A Museum. The Swarovski crystals are presented in a gridlike pattern within a matte black aluminum frame.
RELATED STORY: Swarovski’s Fashion Element >>
“The only brief I was given was that I was to use Swarovski crystals and that it would be situated in the Grand Entrance of the V&A — which was enough for me to work with,” Thomé  told WWD. “As I had no preconceived idea of what I was going to do when I was first given some sample Swarovski crystals, the project was really led by what I learnt by experimenting with the crystals and exploring the how they could be experienced differently.”
He said the inspiration behind Zotem was a response to the interior architecture of the V&A’s Grand Entrance. “I wanted to create a site-specific installation that would entice
