So Far So Goude

d1f62bf0c40a23c5d3da181d36fc3b23The notorious French photographer Jean-Paul Goude masters the art of exaggeration, twisting and perfecting society’s vision of itself: in that sense, helping Kim Kardashian break the internet with a naked front cover for Paper Magazine a few years back is only a natural continuation of his oeuvre (isn’t Kim, with almost 70 million people following her every banal move on Instagram, the most perfect symbol of our current state of popular culture?). With his unique analogue cut-and-paste photomanipulation (that has translated beautifully in the time of Photoshop), Goude has worked his way through the realms of advertising, graphic deisgn, fashion and art with a slight irreverent attitude to all of them: most famously, he provided the avant-garde visual vocabulary to match the rise of super-icon Grace Jones (their Citroën car advert was notoriously banned after its release). Now, a new exhibition at the Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea in Milan sets out to trace the history of this remarkable figure: from Shisheido campaigns to the visual identity of Parisian department store Lafayette, no format is to commercial or generic for Goude to cast his magic. A brief look at his vast archive attests nothing less.

Presented by Tod’s, So Far So Goude is on show at Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea in Milan, April 16-June 19. Find out more about the exhibition here

Prince and the Fashion

_prince-circa-1985

Yesterday evening the world became a less exciting place. Fans around the world was saddened with the news of Prince’s passing, as he was found lifeless in the elevator of his Minnesota home. For 40 years, Prince defied and expanded what it meant to be a performer: with a fluid sexual energy and a drag-like exterior, he shifted from the uber-masculine to the womanlike. He embodied the very notion of camp, and while remaining intensely private about his personal life, shook up music culture for ever. We’re putting on Purple Rain and reminiscing the many times Prince has channeled our happiness, sadness, bravery and extravaganza. Thank you. 96028102_file_photos_-_Prince_Dead__Prince_1991__When_16_Apr_2016_Credit_WENNcom__WENN_does_not_clai-xlarge_trans++64i3L-OxpIM8BOpEukuCJskJUS9pG0Ti5YyICM-caWg princes-death-comes-just-one-week-after-mysterious-medical-emergency 1-prince-passport-photo-holding prince-party cb2543c2_edit_img_image_1090627_1461281302_PSRUSH_PrincesDeath_042116_SQUARE 505f522c9c0aebe708b283aeeab3e31e princebest
