The High Museum of Art in collaboration with the Art Gallery of Ontario presents “Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics, and Painting” an exhibition which juxtaposes some of the best examples of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera’s work. On view until May 12, 2013, the show pairs together works by the Mexican masters chronologically and according to themes, including maternity, Mexican identity, and portraiture.
Presenting around 140 works primarily drawn from the collection of Mexico’s Museo Dolores Olmedo, the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection of Mexican Art, and the Galería Arvil, this exhibition is a must-see.
The Autumn/Winter 2013 collection for Moncler Gamme Bleu presented during Milan Fashion Week Menswear on January 13, 2013 in Milan was highly inspired by Scotland. The brand seems to follow a trend set up by Chanel last December.

Henri Matisse, The Sword Swallower from the Jazz portfolio, 1943-44© 2013 Succession H. Matisse / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York.
The Monterey Museum of Art presents Henri Matisse: Improvisation, an exhibition featuring twenty prints by one the most important artists of the 20th century, the legendary Henri Matisse.
These beautiful works, all made between 1943 and 1944 are inspired by circus, music hall, and folklore. They interestingly contrast with the darkness of these years. These pieces, all extracts from the "Jazz Portfolio", are shown in this exhibition alongside twenty pages of Matisse’s hand-written texts and poems.
Actress, singer, muse, icon, Vanessa Paradis is the new face of the environmentally-aware new collection for H&M. "I like being part of something like the Conscious collection at H&M. I try my best to shop consciously, and vintage is very much part of my wardrobe," she said. "I love the style and it works in an eco-friendly way because I like to use and reuse old clothes."
