Hugo’s Art-Fueled Anniversary


Hugo Boss' Red Never Follows exhibition

“What is so amazing is that we are doing some incredibly quirky work that really is off the radar, yet Hugo Boss managed to find us,” said Pussykrew’s Andrzej Wojtas, one of the twenty “creatives” chosen by the German fashion brand to exhibit their art in Red Never Follows, a new show at London’s Saatchi Gallery. Devised to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the company’s younger label, Hugo, the exhibition fittingly features twenty installations by twenty different artists in an effort to champion creativity, technology, and individuality.

Indeed, the works on view are unique, and even innovative. Cornered, for instance, depicts a man diving headfirst into a wall. Emerging Colourspace is a gravity-defying auto rover similar to a modern-day Etch A Sketch that scribbles red ink. And Cerebral Hut, is a kinetic domelike sculpture that moves based on thoughts (well, brain frequencies, if you want to get specific) captured and transmitted by a headset.

To further the birthday festivities, Hugo has launched a capsule collection of twenty pieces, including a strong red blazer, a monochrome silk shirt, and a very cool set of headphones. Not that anyone was really thinking about clothes (or headphones, for that matter) last night. As Pussykrew’s video installation mesmerized the crowd, Wojtas offered, “What was great about working with Boss was that they gave us total freedom to explore our ideas. Throughout the whole process, we felt their respect.”

Red Never Follows is open to the public from today to September 1, 2013, at The Saatchi Gallery on King’s Road in London.

Runway to Red Carpet: High-Wattage Gowns and a Racy Duet

Over the past few days, mega-starlets have walked red carpets in a multiplicity of wares from fashion’s heaviest hitters—an A+-list week, if we’ve ever seen one.

Last Thursday evening, Tilda Swinton attended the opening of Chanel’s Little Black Jacket exhibition in Shanghai. Draped in an all-white and finitely textured dress from the house’s Resort ’14 lineup, Swinton was spookily ethereal as ever.

On Monday, Sarah Jessica Parker (above, center) headed to the premiere of London’s new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory musical, donning a twinkling Marc Jacobs Resort ’14 dress. Also in the Big Smoke this week: Natalia Vodianova—resplendent in a Stella McCartney lamé, long-sleeve column, with a wooden clutch from the designer’s Fall ’13 collection, at the Saatchi Gallery’s Arts for Life charity auction (which Ms. Vodianova hosted along with Nadja Swarovski and Susan Hayden).

Stateside on Tuesday, Maggie Gyllenhaal (above, left) wore a Christian Dior Fall ’13 number to the premiere of White House Down in New York. The outfit—with its scrunchy peplum waist, scalloped bustier, and interlocking Deco-tinged skirt—balanced Dior’s Old Hollywood glamour with Raf Simons’ architectural flare. Out West in Los Angeles a few hours later, Naomi Watts arrived at the premiere of Ray Donovan in an eyebrow-raising Pre-Fall ’13 Alexander McQueen leather minidress. The bold frock, complete with a teardrop neckline, was definitely racier than the actress’s usual sartorial choices. And finally, back in London Town Wednesday night, another Naomi opted for an edgy option. At the L’Wren Scott-hosted Serpentine Gallery party, Ms. Campbell (above, right) was seen touting a David Koma Fall ’13 mini—complete with sheer shoulders, a banded waist and hem, and athletic sleeves.
