Have you ever looked at the back of your phone and thought, Hey—I wish my phone case was actually a work of art? If you have, the forthcoming The Louvre x CASETiFY collection (Yes, the actual Louvre! In Paris!) is perfect for you. This is truly the biggest thing to happen to art since Harry Styles attended the Met Gala in a sheer shirt, so you better believe I’m excited.

The collection with the Louvre is just the latest collaboration from CASETiFY, as they’ve worked with everyone from Alice + Olivia to The M Jewelers in the past. The brand counts It Girls like Gigi Hadid and Kylie Jenner as fans, and they’ve both been spotted with multiple different CASETiFY cases over the years.

A MoMA Collection Specialist Lives Amid Her Art in Her Brooklyn Apartment

“I really didn’t have any other parameters other than ‘prewar,’” says Kayla Dalle Molle, collection specialist at the MoMA, of her hunt to find her next home. On a Bed-Stuy street chock-full of Victorian-style row houses sat an 1892 brownstone with the sort of iconic period details any history buff or design lover would fawn over. But the hand-carved crown moldings and 10-foot ceilings weren’t the only reason the art researcher felt drawn to the space. After moving back to the city following a short stint in Connecticut, Kayla’s tolerance for clichéd horrible apartments was nonexistent. “I knew what Manhattan had to offer and I knew what I could afford,” quips Kayla of the harsh reality of New York City real estate; “I’ve already lived in a classic dungeon-like space.”

Brian Juk, the resident glassblower at the Corning Museum of Glass.

An incoming collection of Florida-centric artwork, including pieces from Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent and Thomas Moran, will be the largest single art collection donated ever to the University of Florida’s Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art. 

The estimated 1,200 works of art capture the state’s landscape and wildlife, historical moments and people scenes of daily life among oil paintings, watercolors, drawings and prints. The works date from the early 1800s to mid-1900s.

Jacksonville residents Sam and Robbie Vickers donated the works, 40 years after they began assembling their collection.

Giambattista Valli Channels His Inner Bouffant In His Haute Couture SS21 Collection

For his Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2021 collection, Italian designer Giambattista Valli channeled his inner bouffant as he incorporated styles from the 1960s’ and 70s’ in the various looks. Lots of volume, tulle and attitude, Valli takes fashion connoisseurs on a journey of introspection in a time when travel is hard.

Throughout the collection reveal, a male dancer embodies the idea of a messenger of Olympus, who seeks to unveil memories, new emotions and spirits in the soul of the Valli creature, says the House. Through the power of gestures, the dancer, or rather Valli himself takes our hand, inviting all on a journey of the mind with cultures and history, with the aim of bringing cultural enrichment.
