Por que os anos 70 estão de novo na moda?Lindsay BakerDa BBC Culture 23 fevereiro 2015 Exótica, fluida, boêmia, "gypset" – essas são as palavras que devem dominar o mundo da moda neste ano. O look hippie-chic dos anos 70 já está à nossa volta e roubou a cena na apresentação das coleções Primavera/Verão 2015 nos principais desfiles do mundo. Das túnicas florais da grife Céline e calças boca-de-sino de veludo cotelê da Louis Vuitton às maxi-saias e turbantes da Saint Laurent, os anos 70 estão indubitavelmente de volta. A estilista britânica Bella Freud até batizou um novo perfume com o nome de 1970, cujos tons predominantes são o almíscar e patchuli. O look "gypset" dos anos 70 – combinação dos termos "gypsy" ("cigano") e "jet set" (que remete à sofisticação) – é global, glamouroso, luxuoso, hedonista e extravagante. Ele evoca imagens como al…

He didn’t have much materially, but he was blessed with perhaps the greatest gift a child could have — an unconditionally loving, relentlessly supportive mother. Like many creative icons whose destinies wereshaped by the unflinching encouragement of loved ones, little Henri became the greatHenri Matisse thanks to his mother’s staunch support, which began with an unusual ignition spark: At the age of twenty, Henri was hospitalized for appendicitis and hi…

In a New Book, Never-Before-Seen Photos of John Lennon and Yoko OnoCULTURE BY FEBRUARY 6, 2015 4:30 PMFebruary 6, 2015 4:30 pm 03:09 03:20 A little over 30 years ago, the Japanese photographer Kishin Shinoyama walked through Central Park with one of the most famous couples in the world. It was sunset, autumn; they sat on a bench just in front of the pond, bordered by trees, a sliver of New York skyline visible in the distance, including the building where they lived. He asked them to kiss, and he clicked the shutter. Three months later, on Dec. 8, 1980, John Lennon was fatally shot at the entrance to the Dakota, home to him and his wife, Yoko Ono. Just three weeks prior to Lennon’s death, Shinoyama’s photograph of John and Yoko’s kiss at Central Park…
