The worst thing about it is that I have no idea if I got accepted or rejected. You know the saying, flip a coin and you’ll know what you really want when the coin is in the air, it’s true. I didn’t realize how much I wanted to move to Chicago until now. I wanted to go and live with my aunt. I wanted to be close to my boyfriend. I wanted to go back to school.
And I didn’t even get a letter to let me know what they had decided on me.
The Treachery of Images, 1928-29

René Magritte (1898-1967) was a Belgian artist of the Surrealist movement. Despite being recognised as one of the most well-known artists of the 20th century, Magritte didn’t really find much success until the 1950s. Like other surrealist artists, particularly Dalí, Magritte often used repeated imagery and symbols in his work, such as apples, suited men, covered faces and italic text.
Following a dreamy Couture showing inspired by the opera, Valentino’s Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli opted for a peppier, more modern inspiration for Fall: Italian Pop art.
The result? A well rounded beautifully detailed collection filled with groovy florals and prints bursting with bright hues.
