Our editors are a diverse lot, and are constantly perusing a long and broad list of publications and sites. In What We’re Reading PaperCity shares the wealth.
We love Alexander McQueen, the fashion genius who left us far too early. Here’s a look at the label’s spring/summer 2016 collection from the mind of creative director Sarah Burton. Think beads, ruffs, and denim.
Picasso was prolific, very prolific, and his art captivates us still. Much is known about his painting and drawing, but the Spaniard was also a sculptor, and he loved that medium. Here’s a nice read on that part of his creative output.
PaperCity is big on architecture. We love buildings that are designed well, and we can’t get enough of intelligent interiors and spaces. Click here for a captivating look at one of today’s most influential architects, Zaha Hadid.
LACMA is one great museum, and a visit there confirms that. If you plan to be in L.A. soon (or before January 18, 2016), be sure to take in “New Objectivity: Modern German Art in the Weimar Republic, 1919-1933.” Beckmann, Grosz, and others are there, and it’s not to be missed.
