Catherine Malandrino Spring 2014: Poetry and Performance
It was the many years that Catherine Malandrino spent vacationing in Saint Tropez that began as the starting point for her spring 2014 collection, in particular Les Voiles at the start of sailing and yachting season when the harbor fills with boats. “It’s a mood of poetry, but at the same time, because it’s about the sail of Saint Tropez, there’s performance, and this is why I wanted to mix in this collection--poetry and the performance together,” explained Malandrino during the presentation.

Walter Van Beirendonck on His New Dallas Exhibition and Reuniting with the Antwerp Six
Walter Van Beirendonck’s outrageous designs may be a little out there for your typical conservative Dallas crowd, but that didn’t stop Dallas Contemporary from inviting the menswear designer to exhibit there. This past Friday, the museum opened an exhibition of his quirky and colorful designs called “Lust Never Sleeps--Silent Secrets,” which are also the titles of his winter 2012/2013 and summer 2013 collections. We caught up with Van Beirendonck the day before the exhibition opened to ask him about Dallas (he said he hadn't seen much of the city, but that he really wants “to see some line dancing, some rodeo, some real cowboys”) the effect of museum exhibitions on fashion and the possibility of an Antwerp Six reunion.
