Until the 7th of January the Centre Pompidou (Paris) is presenting the first French retrospective dedicated to the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. The exhibition tracks the major moments in the life of the artist through paintings, sculptures, environments and performances of a collection of works which Kusama has herself described as "obsessional". Strongly rooted in a childhood memory, a hallucination from which she developed the polka dot motif, this unclassified work still has significant influence on the contemporary scene.
Demeulemeester created for this season a hybrid collection mixing a decadent and androgyne parts. Tailored blazers, de-structured trenchcoats, embroided jackets were shown along with more exotic pieces such as caftans, sheer shady tops and embroided waistcoat with fringes. Asymmetry and transparences were the main point of the collection in black, white and beige shades. This is one of Demeulemeester most seductive and sensual masterpieces.
