If you’re coming to Montreal this summer, make sure to check out the McCord Museum blockbuster exhibition of Grace Kelly.
From Philadelphia to Monaco: Grace Kelly – Beyond the Icon, a first for North America, will present the woman behind the celebrity and trace her extraordinary life journey through some 100 objects and archives, testimonials, love letters, notes of friendship, photos, film clips and above all clothing and accessories from designers who helped shape fashion in the 20th century.
An exhibition produced by the Grimaldi Forum Monaco in collaboration with the McCord Museum, based on an exhibition by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
Now who’s not going to want to see this! And of course, for perfumistas, we immediately think of Hermes’ Kelly Calèche (2007), Jean-Claude Ellena’s Kelly bag-inspired interpretation of Guy Robert’s Calèche (1961).
Admittedly, I haven’t seen the exhibition yet, but when I do I’ll write about it.
I’ll be back next week with a perfume review but I wanted to give you a heads-up about this exhibition as soon as possible… particularly tourists coming in for the Jazz and Comedy Festivals.
