Somerset House Honors Charlie Brown and Enduring Power of ‘Peanuts’

COMIC RELIEF: Somerset House is bringing print to life with its latest exhibition, “Good Grief, Charlie Brown” which opens its doors on Oct. 25 and runs until March 3.
Spanning two floors, the show highlights George M. Schulz’s cartoons and impact on contemporary culture. On display are more than 80 original illustrations, first-edition comic books and vintage sweaters featuring iconic “Peanuts” screen prints on loan from Kim Jones, Dior’s artistic director.
Elsewhere, there are large-scale comic strips plastered on the walls of the exhibition, while personal belongings of the artist, such as Schulz’s favorite drawing tools, are showcased.
Contemporary artists also speak to the enduring power of the comic in a video screened upstairs in the cinema room. Issues such as feminism, mental health and friendship are highlighted.
Browns Fashion has gone nuts for Charlie Brown, with the retailer launching an exclusive capsule collection of items relating to the Fifties comic, including a skateboard — the comic book character’s preferred mode of transportation — that retails at 85 pounds.
Other items include tote bags, a stainless-steel flask, and a selection of notebooks with original illustrations as well as contemporary interpretations of the cartoon characters.

Vera Wang: Enduring Style

Vera Wang: Enduring Style


As USA TODAY, The Nation’s No. 1 Newspaper, put it, "Vera Wang is hot???.She oversees everything." The name Vera Wang has become synonymous with simple, elegant design. Her wonderfully styled gowns drape and flow to make the wearer look her best. Her casual clothes beautifully combine comfort and function. But who’s the person behind the brand? Born to wealthy Chinese parents, Vera Wang learned about high fashion at an early age. After many years as a Vogue magazine editor, Wang embarked on her own design career, starting with unique, stylish wedding gowns. Her attention to detail and understanding of a bride’s needs made her a must-have designer among the rich and famous. Eventually, she spread her wings to include gala attire for Hollywood events, china, crystal, stationary, perfume, low-priced ready-to-wear clothing, and even mattresses. What will this designer and entrepreneur pursue next?

Beautiful Photo Captures Elderly Couple’s Enduring Love

If there’s a photo out there that more beautifully captures enduring love, we’re not sure we’ve seen it.

Redditor downvotestickle writes of the photo below, “My 91-year-old grandfather is dying. Caught this beautiful moment between he and my 92-year-old grandmother in the hospital today.”

And if that wasn’t proof enough, their grandson added in the comments that the pair — who have been together 68 years — “still kiss 15 times before bed every night (and will until he can’t any longer).”

“I’m hoping to love my wife as deeply and long as he’s loved his,” he says.
