All that was missing was a place to stay and plan your frenetic tour of the city. The Moxy has risen brilliantly to the challenge, offering comfortable and exceedingly practical rooms. Right before your immersion into the wild life of NYC.

Chics, les Italiens !

Trivero Picture those elegant suited Italians: always the flawless lapel and impeccably pressed double-breasted wool jacket. The Milanese house Ermenegildo Zegna is celebrating 50 years of menswear with an exhibition revolving around its first decade of ready-to-wear (1968-1978). Archival photos, vintage fabrics and period wardrobe—an elegy to fashion showcasing timeless sartorial elegance.

À la table de Pablo

Barcelone The exhibition “Picasso’s Cuisine,” featuring 180 works, aims to define the master’s tastes, literally and symbolically. A decidedly original overview—food for thought for a biopic? A bio-picnic? Picasso, his favorite restaurants and foods, his still lifes—including this 1914 pencil drawing of a cuttlefish (above).

Prêt à partir

Amsterdam / Hong Kong Because Vincent was always on the go, the Van Gogh Museum contacted Samsonite, famous for their lightweight, sturdy luggage. Because he gave Almond Blossoms (1890) to the parents of his nephew Vincent Willem when the boy was born, this work, influenced by traditional Japanese art, was selected for these suitcases and bags. Because floral outbursts such as these are the harbingers of spring. And off we go.

Figures de tête

Bâles These two artists alone could provide a synthesis of figurative and abstract art. Works by these two 20th-century survivors, Francis Bacon and Alberto Giacometti, are juxtaposed for a summer spell in a ruthless and raw face-off. In the background, British painter Isabel Rawsthorne, their muse and model.
