Royal cu­ra­tion, Azze­dine Alaïa and a rather spe­cial watch – our top picks of hap­pen­ings this month

#Legend - - SPY CAM -

Con­ceived and co-cu­rated with Azze­dine Alaïa be­fore his death last Novem­ber, this ex­hi­bi­tion at Lon­don’s De­sign Mu­seum charts his in­cred­i­ble jour­ney from sculp­tor to cou­turier. In a world of fash­ion that has sped into chaos of late, Alaïa never fol­lowed trends or the mood of the streets, and didn’t do mix and match, but the full look. As such, he worked above the pack, not with it, im­pos­ing a painstak­ing and per­fec­tion­ist eye for de­tail. Seek re­lief and en­light­en­ment from to­day’s of-the-mo­ment trends (and to­mor­row’s Vete­ments memes) in the lit­tle mas­ter’s in­au­gu­ral UK ex­hi­bi­tion. Held from May 10 to Oc­to­ber 7, it’s rev­e­la­tion and re­minder of fash­ion in its ul­ti­mate and en­dur­ing mo­ment. de­sign­mu­seum.org
