London – Tate Modern

On one of our recent trips to London we were able to enjoy the remarkable space of this outstanding modern and contemporary art gallery.

Exhibiting are two inspirational women artist – Sonia Delaunay and Marlene Dumas.

THE EY EXHIBITION: SONIA DELAUNAY
Amazingly modern for her time, Sonia Delaunay sought to extend art into the broader material culture. This major retrospective is simply wonderful. The pure colour and rhythm of her paintings and chic, timeless geometric shapes found on her knitted swimwear and clothing, made us realise how much Sonia Delaunay is a pioneer of abstract art.

We love this image of some of her clothing and it reminds us of our Koko poncho, which will be exclusively available in August at Matches.

Paris – Foundation LV

Foundation Louis Vuitton, architect Frank Gehry’s latest museum project, was the setting for an amazing intimate performance from Kanye West.

The performance billed as ‘A film by Steve McQueen’ premiered his latest music video directed by McQueen, with an exhibition of work by Jackie Nickerson, who photographed the lookbook for West’s collaboration with Adidas.

We were very fortunate to be invited to one of the evening performances – a massive thank you to Gayle and Kim.
