Les Recontres d’Arles: Photography Meets Haute Couture

25Jul08

Whimsical couture on display at Les Rencontres d'Arles


My fabulous friend, NY based designer, Marla Weinhoff, just returned from the photo show, Les Rencontres d’Arles, curated this year by world famous couturier, Arles native, and visual arts connoisseur Christian Lacroix.  She was kind enough to share her gorgeous photos with ArtsÉtoile readers and raved about the event, including exhibits of work by Paolo Roversi, Peter Lindbergh, Francoise Huguier, Ethan Levitas, and Richard Avedon (who Marla produced sets for).  In addition, there were lectures, documentaries and projections every night in the ancient amphitheatre.   I hope that I can attend next year, anything that fuses art, fashion, and France gets high marks from ArtsÉtoile.

    What an interesting event and great pictures. I’ll certainly look into attending next year! Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

  2. Excellent blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any message boards that cover the
    same topics talked about here? I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get advice from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Bless you!

  3. Hello there! This article couldn’t be written any
    better! Going through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!

    He constantly kept talking about this. I’ll forward this information to him.
    Pretty sure he’ll have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

  4. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However think of if you added some great
    graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Awesome blog!

  5. Hi every one, here every one is sharing such familiarity, thus it’s good to
    read this blog, and I used to go to see this web site every day.
