THE FINER THINGS

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Talking Points -

In cel­e­bra­tion of Révéla­tions, the very first in­ter­na­tional bi­en­nial fair pro­mot­ing fine crafts­man­ship, the art gallery of La Val­lée Vil­lage is host­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion on the theme ‘A Vi­sion of Moder­nity’. Fo­cus­ing on three young artists, the cu­ra­tion is an en­thralling mix of fash­ion and haute cou­ture, metic­u­lously cre­ated with tra­di­tional savoir-faire and in­no­va­tion.

Ar­ti­san and tex­tile de­signer Janaïna Mil­heiro shows high-end weav­ing and em­broi­dery for fash­ion and home in­te­ri­ors, spe­cial­is­ing in feath­ered silks and laces. Sim­i­larly se­duc­tive are the brightly coloured pop-in­spired pieces by Chris­tine Phung, which are both del­i­cate and ar­chi­tec­tural in their soft and struc­tural lines. Milliner Clothilde Tous­saint tops it all off with her ir­re­sistible range of hats and fas­ci­na­tors, loved by fash­ion houses the likes of Jean- Paul Gaultier as well as the stars of the Parisian stage. ‘ La Val­lée Vil­lage and Les Métiers d’Art’ runs through Jan­uary 12 at Es­pace La Val­lée Vil­lage. www.lavalleevil­lage.com
