EM­PIRE ON FIRE

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Culture Bazaar -

‘Olivier Theyskens – She Walks in Beauty’ traces the evo­lu­tion of one of Bel­gium’s most fas­ci­nat­ing de­sign­ers, who ex­ploded into the fash­ion scene at the age of 20, when Madonna wore a corseted Olivier Theyskens gown for the VH1 Fash­ion Awards in 1998. Jour­ney through the fas­ci­nat­ing world of Theyskens’s ir­rev­er­ent de­signs, from when dark ro­mance took charge dur­ing his reign at Rochas and Nina Ricci in the noughties, to his min­i­mal­ist yet pow­er­ful point of view in the 2010s for Theyskens’ The­ory. Cou­ture pieces are com­ple­mented with lit­er­ary voices, pho­to­graphs, films, and ex­cep­tional draw­ings, show­ing the clothes in mo­tion—a nod to the dig­i­tal world and a great in­sight into the con­tem­po­rary fash­ion in­dus­try. Un­til April 15 at ModeMu­seum, An­twerp, Bel­gium. www.momu.be
