Supported by Swarovski, the exhibition produced by the Kunsthal Rotterdam and premiered last winter, was exhibited at the Kunsthalle Munich for its second stop over the summer and now arrives at La Venaria Reale. Already seen by close to 325.000 visitors, the exhibition has now opened in Turin.
The show is curated by Thierry-Maxime Loriot and presents a major survey of the work of this unique and highly influential photographer. Celebrated for his iconic, often cinematic images and widely regarded as one of the most influential fashion photographers of our time, Peter Lindbergh has enjoyed a multi-faceted, forty-year career that continues to this day. He is best known for the introduction of a new realism in photography, which plays with the notion of the authentic, strong and self-willed woman, from femme fatale to heroine, redefining the standards of beauty. This extraordinary, singular vision completely changed the course of fashion photography.
A Different Vision on Fashion Photography is an ode to Peter Lindbergh’s distinctive oeuvre from 1978 to the present day. The show has a thematic approach, marking his creative development and focusing on the passions he developed over the years. Eight different sections have been devised: Supermodels, Couturiers, Zeitgeist, Dance, The Unknown, Darkroom, Silver Screen and Icons.

For the 2017 Pre-Fall, Prada presents Micro Box and Micro Cahier bags: two essential and sophisticated accessories, defined by their small sizes and precious details.
The Prada Micro Box bag is the fruit of a desire to create a small, precious bag with strong figurative connotations, a bag that conjures up the idea of an ancient box for safekeeping small articles that are absolutely essential for their owner.
Function gives way to aesthetics, necessity to the simple desire to possess a bag that fires the imagination.
The rigid structure is fastened by locks and metal elements.
Studs, corner details and large latches characterise these caskets whose wooden frame is variably covered in fabric, such as velvet or brocade, or leather, such as spazzolato, lizard or crocodile skin.
All versions have long shoulder chains with a leather detail.
The Prada Cahier bag – inspired by a diary - is available in two new sizes: the Mini Cahier and the Micro Cahier.
These are made of calf as well as precious skins, such as crocodile, ostrich, python and lizard in many different colors and also in a combined variation.
It features details that recall ancient books like the bronze metal hardware as well as a brand new buckles. The long chain strap complete its strong character.
