At nearly 70 years old, Roberto Cavalli is looking pretty good (despite oversized cheekbones and a joker-like wide mouth).
We have him to thank for classics like sand-blasted jeans (he invented them!) and outfits for the Spice Girls.
Apparently his business is going from strength to strength as he and business partner/wife Eva Duringer now have a whole host of brands aimed at different markets - such as Just Cavalli for the younger crowd - and no longer limits himself to just clothes: beyond the standard eyewear, perfume and accessories he also makes Roberto Cavalli vodka (which the official site bizarrely describes as "the quintessences of pure femininity") and proposes that you apply for a Roberto Cavalli credit card, as used by Milla Jovovich (allegedly).
It's no surprise then that his main store in France is to be found on the most glam street in the city. Prepare to be dazzled...
The Grand Palais will be hosting the modern and contemporary art fair better known as “Artparis” this April...
On this occasion, it will showcase the work of a hundred of the most vibrant French and foreign galleries that appear to be particularly representative of the international modern and contemporary art market.
Retaining its modern-contemporary slant, this significant Parisian art event offers a comprehensive overview of modern art from the 1900s onwards while also featuring a wide range of works by major contemporary artists, French or resident in France, and up-and-coming young artists representing the current French art scene.
“Artparis” brings together about a hundred French and foreign galleries from 14 countries under the glass roof of the Grand Palais over a five-day period.
For this edition, artparis will present a thematic exhibition, specifically dedicated to China Contemporary arts.
