Peter Lindbergh: From Fashion to Reality

Open April 13–August 27, 2017
Kunsthalle Munich

Swarovski is proud to be the premium partner in support of the international touring exhibition Peter Lindbergh: A Different Vision on Fashion Photography. After debuting at the Kunsthalle Rotterdam last year, it has arrived for its second leg at the Kunsthalle Munich under the title Peter Lindbergh: From Fashion to Reality. Curated by Thierry-Maxime Loriot, with Lindbergh, the show presents a major retrospective of this unique and highly influential photographer.

Celebrated for his cinematic style, his introduction of a new realism into fashion photography, and his redefinition of the standards of beauty, Lindbergh has enjoyed a multifaceted, forty-year career. The show takes a thematic approach, marking his fascinating creative development, and highlighting his passions. Its eight sections—Supermodels, Couturiers, Zeitgeist, Dance, The Unknown, Darkroom, Silver Screen and Icons—include many fine art prints and striking haute couture pieces featuring dazzling Swarovski crystals, alongside rare behind-the-scenes and archive material.

The next leg of the tour will be in Turin, which opens in October 2017.

The International Festival of Fashion and Photography in Hyères

Runs April 27–May 1, 2017

The International Festival of Fashion and Photography in Hyères—now in its 32nd year—gets its first accessories award this year. The Swarovski Fashion Accessories Prize has been created just at a time when this most prestigious festival for young designers is continuing its focus on fashion’s most significant trend directions. Previous Fashion category winners have included industry luminaries Viktor&Rolf, with judges of the caliber of Martin Margiela and Karl Lagerfeld. Swarovski has a longstanding commitment to nurturing young talent and has partnered with the festival since 2009. This new award will launch the next generation of accessories design stars onto the world stage. 

The ten accessories finalists will arrive at the oldest resort on the French Riviera in preparation for the festival’s opening on April 27. Over the four days at the beautiful Villa Noailles they’ll have the chance to present a micro-collection directly to jury members presided over by the esteemed Pierre Hardy. They’ll also be invited to take part in a group exhibition that both industry professionals and the public may view. The Swarovski Fashion Accessories Prize winner will benefit from a career-changing grant of €15,000 from Swarovski. We wish them all the best of luck.
