La Perla Curated Walk
For over 60 years, La Perla has followed the evolution of women’s fashion becoming the lingerie and beachwear brand synonymous with “Made in Italy” luxury. As art involves and evokes emotions, it has always been a fundamental reference point in the inspiration of the collections and the definition of its aesthetic vision. Join the La Perla curated walk by commencing with an in-store look behind the scenes of the creation of the FW16 collection, followed by their selection of three Mayfair art galleries. The curated walk will take place twice daily on Saturday and Sunday.
- Mazzoleni Art – Pittura Analitica 1970s
- Mayor Gallery – Li Huasheng
Gallery of African Art
Join Ms Bendu Cooper for a talk about the two artists: Daniela Ribeiro and Ndidi Emefiele on their exhibition Global African Profiles. One artist uses technology in art and the other focuses on the feminine form, exploring and questioning the social, cultural and religious norms which shape and define the role of women as she sees it in her society.
