The retrospective on the founder, who now calls himself Manfred, explores his function as a couturier, director, photographer and perfumer. Mugler’s archival creations have loved a revival in recent times, because of red-carpet appearances by the likes of Cardi B and Kim Kardashian.
Among the many different main exhibitions deliberate for this fall is a present exploring Cartier’s ties with Islamic artwork. “Cartier and the Islamic arts: On the roots of modernity” is scheduled to run from Oct. 21 to Feb. 20, 2022, in partnership with the jewellery home and the Dallas Museum of Artwork, dwelling to the Keir Assortment of Islamic artwork.
