The second week of April 2017’s best Instagram moments from the style department are clearly dedicated to the industry’s trailblazers. In celebrating Rei Kawakubo’s eye for the avant-garde and unconventional, The Costume Institute will host the Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between exhibition. Approximately 150 examples of Kawakubo’s womenswear for Comme des Garçons dating from the early 1980s to her most recent collection will be on display at the retrospective exhibition from 4 May 2017.

Louis Vuitton also proved it can make homeware just as covetable as its ready-to-wear.The Maison showcased its Objets Nomades series at the Salone del Mobile 2017, working with some of the industry’s most known designers for the cause. Besides the Campana Brothers who made a comeback, the collection also sees works by India Mahdavi and Tokujin Yoshioka this year.

Meanwhile, English artist Henry Moore’s work is brought back to life on an unusual canvas  a Burberry trench coat — while Valentino challenges stereotypes by making skater shoes for women.
