Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli



Happiness is just a hairflip away.

A NEW CLIP EVERY WEEK HERE

"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".

JW Anderson -the exhibition

Jonathan Anderson has made a move on the art world this weekend, with the opening of his new exhibition in Britain. He has teamed up with The Hepworth Wakefield gallery in West Yorkshire to curate "Disobedient Bodies", an exhibition that explores the boundaries between fashion, art and design. "This is a rare and exciting opportunity for me to bring together pieces of art and fashion that have long inspired my own creative work and to see what happens when these objects rub up against each other", said the designer, who is known for his work as the creative director of Loewe as well as for his eponymous label. He added that he wanted in part to create "a space in which to explore ideas of gender and identity that have been an ongoing part of [his] creative practice". The exhibition, which examines the ways in which the human form has been reimagined by artists and designers throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, features more than 100 objects. These include sculptures by artists such as Jean Arp, Louise Bourgeois, Lynn Chadwick, Naum Gabo, Barbara Hepworth, Sarah Lucas, Henry Moore, Magali Reus and Dorothea Tanning, which are paired with fashion pieces by Christian Dior, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Rei Kawakubo, Helmut Lang and Issey Miyake. At the spectacle's center is an interactive forest of oversized jumpers created by JW Anderson, inviting visitors to transform themselves into abstract shapes. The exhibition also features a new series of photographs by Jamie Hawkesworth who Dazed describe as 'one of the most visionary fashion photographers working today'. JW Anderson has collaborated with Tom Emerson and Stephanie Macdonald of 6a architects to present this show, which unfolds across the galleries, offering a series of contrasting experiences for you to explore. It runs until June 18, 2017. But it is not the only big project the designer has up his sleeve at the moment, having been unveiled as the 'Special Guest' at the upcoming edition of the Italian menswear event Pitti Uomo this June.
