David Bowie exhibition breaks box office records

By Mike Collett-White LONDON (Reuters) – Ziggy played guitar. But as a new exhibition devoted to singer David Bowie’s long and innovative career makes clear, he also wrote lyrics, checked every detail of his outlandish costumes, appeared in movies and helped design his own stage sets. “David Bowie is”, which runs from March 23 to August 11, has broken box office records at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, with 50,000 advance tickets sold. …

Battle for control over Bolshoi escalates

The Bolshoi Theater general director Anatoly Iksanov speaks to the media in Moscow, Russia, Tuesday, March 19, 2013. Iksanov has rejected criticism from an increasingly assertive principal dancer, Nikolai Tsiskaridze, who is openly aspiring to take his job. The two men have been locked in an increasingly ugly public battle since the Jan. 17 acid attack on Bolshoi artistic director Sergei Filin. (AP Photo/Alexander Zemlianichenko) MOSCOW (AP) — The foes make a striking contrast — a bald, stolid general director versus an extravagant dancer with an opulent mane of dark hair.

Cerre

At first glance, you might not guess that Cerre‘s stark, luxurious separates are conceived and created in West Hollywood—these clothes certainly aren’t for the Coachella-bound festival set. Over the past several years, the label’s Melrose Avenue boutique has built up a strong clientele of stylish Angelenos with a proclivity for dark leather and drapey silhouettes. This season, husband-and-wife design team Clayton and Flavie Webster (who met in Paris while modeling for the likes of Comme des Garçons and Issey Miyake) began wholesaling for the first time.

They seized the opportunity to reintroduce some of Cerre’s greatest hits, including buttery-soft biker jackets, which they cut three different ways (oversize, classic, and slim), as well as calfskin kimonos and silk blouses with detachable snood-like scarf collars. Still, the Websters weren’t short on new ideas. They showed their first tailored suit and debuted a digital print on fluid shirts and maxi skirts. Structured pieces, including felted merino wool coats and capelets, were the standouts. “Ascension, expansion, and dissolution,” were the keywords the couple used to describe the collection. With a lower-priced diffusion line reportedly in the works, it seems like ascension and expansion, at least, are in Cerre’s cards.

Tucker

Gaby Basora has always taken a confidently playful approach to designing her Tucker line, which attracts a youngish crowd with its whimsical patterns and uncomplicated silhouettes. The former stylist delivered on her signature novelty prints in the form of easy blouses, jumpsuits, and tunic dresses for Fall, but the new lineup had a decidedly more grown-up vibe, which was evident in the full midi skirts, as well as the slim yet relaxed trousers, which showed off Basora’s tailoring skills. Outerwear was a surprising high note, with standouts including a cropped, Lurex-flecked tapestry coat, as well as a swingy leopard trench that will definitely turn heads on the sidewalk.
