Miscellanea

De pied en cape

Venise Zorro, Superman and Sherlock Holmes all wore capes, the stuff of heroes. Oversized versions appear this winter in the Scottish-inspired menswear collection by the Golden Goose Deluxe Brand in Venice. Updated with new materials and Italian expertise, tartan has infiltrated closets and brightly colored accessories (like the famous sneakers).

Oiseau d’Amérique

Des Moines At 23, this angel-faced singer from Iowa has a debut album with multiple affinities, a poetic crucible of the best sounds of America. Max Jury sings country from the roots and fragile urban folk music, and in a beat, adds a dash of soul spiced with gospel and rock’n’roll. Sincere and luminous.

Lindbergh en VO

Rotterdam Peter Lindbergh claims he sees better in black and white, and in photographs, than in real life. Which explains his longevity. A major figure on the fashion scene since the 1980s, he is also an illustrious portraitist (his image of Jeanne Moreau is magnificent). And a man who can still be surprised: “The most beautiful women are in the street.”

PETER LINDBERGH. A DIFFERENT VISION ON FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY

Du 10.09. au 12.02.2017 Museumpark, Westzeedijk 341.
