Parler avec les mains

Bath Yves Saint Laurent tasked Loulou de la Falaise with creating his jewelry designs. Johnny Coca, creative director at Mulberry, sees these as part and parcel of his wardrobeinspired this summer by school uniforms and work clothes. Outsized pieces dotted with enamel and crystals play around with paper clips, nails and screws.

Cunningham, figure libre

Chicago Far removed from a world of starchy tutus and pointe shoes, Merce Cunningham was not only a prodigious dancer and choreographer of modern dance but also a bridgemaker between the arts, be it music, video or the visual arts. Tuned in to his times, an icon of our age.

Matière à penser

Rome A forest of trees, a pebble polished by the waves, an interesting combination of wood and bronze. This is an enduring love story between Fendi, Rome and Giuseppe Penone, one of the greatest sculptors of the last century. His eye for the wonders of nature brings the Eternal City to life.

Un maître à l’écran

Gorée In Africa, joy and melancholy always go hand in hand. Senegal’s Gorée island is the location for this celebration of the late, great Ousmane Sow, in a festive atmosphere. Paris exhibited his giant figures; here, a photo-video installation takes the visitor into the heart of the artist’s creative process. An emotional encounter.

L’énigme Hirst

Venise Prodigious member of the Young British Artists and international star, with close links to the Pinault Foundation, Damien Hirst is showing work at the Palazzo Grassi and the Punta della Dogana. No animals floating in formaldehyde, nor skulls encrusted with diamonds: this, the fruit of a decade of labor, is the year’s most-awaited mystery exhibition.

Ciseler les heures

Le Brassus A bracelet studded with thousands of diamonds, a mirror dial to reflect its golden hands: Audemars Piguet’s latest piece of haute jewelry is like a crown of stalactites carved from the bed of a precious ocean. What time is it? Whatever the time of day, it’s a moment of pure wonderment.

Temps impartial

Genève Southpaws of the world, rejoice! Tudor has brought out a left-handed version of its Pelagos diving watch, worthy successor to the custom timepieces made for the French navy in the 1970s. To be worn on the right wrist, with the winding crown accessibly placed on the near side of the case. Every second counts!
