Catwalks already warned us about it: white is the new black, ideal for day and night wear. It is the best shade for high temperatures and that’s why some of our star garments and accessories of the spring-summer collection, such as the tailored jacket, show off dyed snow-white. As long as it is ideal for wearing a total and infallible look as an option to wear for work, celebs are addicted to white colour too.
They are the first risking and applying the trends; we’ve seen them in many public appearances in spotless, hiper chic and elegant white. Also perfect, white colour stands out combined with acid or pastel items that will always give a touch of joy and optimism.

‘Schiaparelli and Prada’: Impossible Conversations.
An exhibition that contrasts the talent of these two Italian that challenged the clichés with lasting and very different styles.
The title comes from some simulated interviews that the Mexican Miguel Covarrubias published in the 30s in ‘Vanity Fair’. This fictitious interview
is summarized in Baz Luhrmann´s video, which reflects the conversation between these designers’ garments about woman’s body and the changing idea of ‘chic’. 100 garments and dozens of accessories that are impossible to be catalogued: the dress with lips and the hat in the shape of lamb-chops that Schiaparelli and Salvador Dalí designed together. Also, the black velvet cape with a golden Apollo that the Italian designed in 1939. And from Prada, the Brown leather legionary dress that were shown in her collection of 2009, and the short dress with kitchen utensils inserted in her 2007 collection. Some people thinks she is close to her predecessor style and some others consider her freer to create. Schiaparelli and Prada are not as similar as they might seem at first glance. They both create, but with very different concepts about fashion. Schiapparelli owns a lot to avant-gardism and she is not a craftswoman but an artist. Prada is self-sufficient and has got a kind of trade instinct. She never wanted to collaborate with an artist in the catwalk nor even has accepted to be called artist. “Designing is creating, but it is not an art”, she says in the video.
Until 19th August

Rose Marie Terenzio has waited more than a decade for writing («Fairy Tale Interrupted», Gallery Books). A tale written with more admiral than confidences about her personal experience as JFK Junior’s personal assistant, from 1994 to 1999. It coincides with his marriage with the stylish Carolyn Besette. The woman who married one of the most coveted single me of the 20th century; his fate was other than being the eternal outsider, resigned to the use of his surname for good purposes and to keep on being the protagonist of yellow magazines. A fully stylish couple who (when disappeared) was having his palatial mansion built in New Canaan, Connecticut, thinking of descendants. Even under these circumstances, the prince of American rejected paternity in favour of his more personal project: George magazine.
This young couple’s happiness lasted a very short time. Kennedy clan members, gorgeous, rich and beloved, catholic with Irish origins initially settled in Boston, suffered huge losses in the second half of that century. John and Carolyn’s one was one of the most famous. It was the third Kennedy generation, the “royal family” of the USA, who ran out of heir after John-John’s death.
