Lacroix was intrigued when he was invited by Diego Della Valle to create a capsule haute couture collection. Lacroix imagined “an abstraction of Schiaparelli—a gesture—between stage costume and couture.”

The Lacroix-Schiap collaboration is intended as a one-off extravaganza as Marco Zanini is rumored to be taking over the ready-to-wear direction of the house.

Last month, the New York Magazine prepared a series of covers to mark the opening of the exhibition “Punk: Chaos to Couture” at the Metropolitan Museum. However the Boston terrorist attack made ​​some changes in the plans for the edition and the cover was replaced but the magazine still presented one of its alternative covers for the exhibition with Anna Wintour as a model.

PUNK: Chaos to Couture will be on view from May 9 through August 14, 2013 and will examine punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement’s birth in the 1970s through its continuing influence today.

Alta Moda, is the name of photographer Mario Testino’s latest exhibition at Mate, his cultural foundation in the heart of Lima’s Barranco district. A tribute to traditional Peruvian dress, with its rich, colorful embroidery and fabrics that are often still worn in the Andes region of Peru, the exhibit draws attention to the stunning haute couture qualities of Peruvian costume.

“I wanted to pay homage to Peru and to the sumptuousness of traditional Peruvian clothing, clothing to which Peruvians remain attached today,” shared Testino in April’s edition of Vogue Paris. For his photo backdrops, Testino even turned to cult 1930s and 1940s Peruvian photographer, Martin Chambi’s family to help him bring his celebration of his native Peru to life.
