For Labor Day weekend and as fall approaches and visitors plan ahead for the holidays, Rodeo Drive will embrace its role at the intersection of fashion, art and entertainment with a series of new collections inspired by contemporary artists and legendary cinematographers, world-class and immersive art exhibitions that celebrate luxury travel and the practice of women artists, innovative and award-winning international dining experiences and the sparkling Rodeo Drive Holiday Lighting Celebration is scheduled for Nov. 17.
“Rodeo Drive is more vibrant and relevant than ever right now,” Rodeo Drive committee president Kathy Gohari said. “This summer visitors have flocked to Rodeo Drive. The world’s most iconic, luxury fashion destination is an inspiration with luxury brands presenting immersive exhibitions and pop ups in collaboration with some of today’s most important artists, architects, filmmakers and designers. We have an exciting new season ahead with visionary F/W collections arriving in our boutiques every day, and plans for exceptional holiday decor and our outstanding Rodeo Drive Holiday Lighting Celebration.”
Gucci’s Exquisite campaign by Alessandro Michele has already launched to accompany its Fall 2022 collection now on Rodeo Drive.
“[It is] my tribute to cinema and to one of its brightest maestros, Stanley Kubrick,” Michele said. “A philosophic filmmaker who, better than others, emanated the magic of that inextricable knot through which cinema exudes life and magnifies it. With Exquisite I carry on my attempt to mingle high and low, this time coherently and synergistically with the grammar of the great director. I could never imagine clothes as severed from the story and life of the person wearing them. If you ask me, a garment is not, and never will be, just a piece of fabric. It’s rather the means through which we are able to unfold who we really decide to be, it’s how we shape our desires and the ultimate sense of our staying.”
At Louis Vuitton’s 200 Trunks 200 Visionaries traveling exhibition, experience 200 imaginative trunks realized by 200 visionaries. The exhibition offers a stage for the visionaries’ trunks to be viewed as an ongoing tribute to Louis’s innovative legacy. A mosaic of talents and friends of the House – spanning arts and culture, the sciences, sports, global causes and more – were invited to personalize the emblematic trunk, among them Supreme, Peter Marino, Lego, Alex Israel and Fornasetti. A metaphorical blank canvas measuring 50 x 50 x 100 centimeters, approximately dimensions of the original trunk that Louis conceived in the 1850s, yielded 200 extraordinary transformations: vessels transmitting dreams and desires, abstract concepts, and artistic expressions. It will be on view through Sept. 6.
At Saint Laurent Rive Droite, an exhibition of provocative films and images by director, documentary filmmaker and photographer Sébastien Zanella curated by Anthony Vaccarello explores freedom of expression and the human condition in the global culture of skateboarding, surfing and the street.
Specially shot for Saint Laurent Rive Droite, a series of photographs will be on display in SLRD stores in Paris and Los Angeles. The exhibition is built around a dialogue between two worlds. An urban, masculine, young, protesting universe, in a brutalist architecture, in black and white. Then on the other hand a feminine universe, colored, in a natural environment, aquatic and centered around surfing. The exhibition is at the Rodeo Drive SLRD boutique through Sept. 9.
At the Dior Men Winter 2022 Pop Up, let yourself be transported to the Alexandre III bridge, a dreamy Parisian setting. The iconic Pegasus sculpture, featured exclusively at the Rodeo Drive location has been created using a 3D printer to capture even the smallest of details and then finished with gold leaf. Lights in the entry tunnel and inside on the bridge flicker on and off alongside imagery of the Parisian skyline. A curved LED screen shows the Winter 22 campaign video. The Rodeo Drive installation is one in a global series, which includes an installation at Dior’s New York Flagship boutique on 5th Avenue. The exhibition is on view through Sept. 19.
Break away from your shopping with a light and luxurious lunch or dinner at the newly-opened The Hideaway, at the legendary 208 Restaurant on Two Rodeo Drive, or enjoy Head Chef Mattia Agazzi’s Michelin-starred fare at the Gucci Osteria di Massimo Bottura Beverly Hills.
