Lady Dior As Seen By

{Comments Off}

The story begins in 1995, when Bernadette Chirac, then First Lady of France, presented Diana, Princess of Wales, with the latest creation from the house of Dior: a handbag. And so the Lady Dior was born.

In 2011, a debut exhibition organized in Shanghai gave carte blanche to international photographers and artists to provide their own take on the bag. The show contained some fifty pieces. Next, it was Beijing’s turn. Today, Lady Dior As Seen By is crossing the East China Sea to land in Tokyo, in time for the reopening of the Dior store in the city’s Ginza district.

The exhibition will remain open to the public from April 22 to May 20, in a location a stone’s throw away from the new, completely revamped spaces.

The artists Nan Goldin, Arnaud Pyvka, Bruce Weber, Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Lindbergh, our favourites Tim Gutt & Shona Heath, Koichiro Doi and many others, set it a story and photographed it. Others, such as Liu Jianhua, Olympia Scarry, Kohei Nawa, Daniel Arsham,…, have treated it as sculpture. And on the lower floor of the exhibition space, is the series of films in which the bag shares top billing with French actress Marion Cotillard in front of the cameras of David Lynch, Olivier Dahan, John Cameron Mitchell and Annie Leibovitz. The new show boasts over one-third more pieces than the original.

Another room is given over to the history of the bag and the house, with archival imagery projected on a screen whose round form alludes to the charms that hang from the handbag’s handles: the O of diOr.

After that show wraps, the Lady Dior As Seen By exhibition will forge ahead on its global tour. To be continued…

Previous Arrangements by Tim Gutt & Shona Heath

Photographer Tim Gutt and Art director Shona Heath have chosen B Store in London to show their latest project, “Previous Arrangements”.
The clothes featured in Previous Arrangements were selected from designer Peter Jensen’s archive. Tim Gutt and Shona Heath say that they are particularly attracted to Peter Jensen style. They have already incorporated his clothing in their previous work. To quote them, Peter Jensen’s clothes “seem to celebrate a cinematic iconography, they enhance narratives and they bring the cast to life. His pieces are beautiful, timeless and courageously simple.”

An earlier collaboration in 2006 between Gutt, Heath and Jensen created a stereoscopic photo story shot in Central Park, New York for a 3-D View-Master. Rarely seen in the intended format, the piece will also be exhibited with Previous Arrangements for the duration of the exhibition.

Tim Gutt is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Arts in the Netherlands, his work often resists categorization as it shifts between the spheres of art and fashion. His recent exhibitions include Inner City at Claire de Rouen Books, London and Case Study at Plymouth Arts Centre. His work is featured in a range of publications for clients as diverse as the Henry Moore Institute and The Pet Shop Boys, while his editorial work features in French Vogue, Art Review and Another Man.

Shona Heath unique sensibility has led to some of the most visually arresting fashion editorials of recent years, most notably in Italian, British and American Vogue as well as Another Magazine and Dazed & Confused. She works with a range of photographers who include Nick Knight, Craig McDean, Tim Walker and Serge Leblon.

Collaborative projects between Gutt & Heath have been published in Kilimanjaro, 032c, British Vogue, Beaux Arts, and Dazed & Confused.

B Store has been selling Peter Jensen since opening in 2000.
