Rather than stage another amorphous art and fashion event, next month’s MOVE! in São Paulo aims to bring to life fashion, dance, visual and performance art and theater.
Revving up the experience will be installations and performances by collaborators such as Francisco Costa and Vik Muniz; Marc Jacobs and Rob Pruitt, and Cynthia Rowley and Olaf Breuning. In total, there will be eight movements including “Pose” by Ryan McNamara with Diane von Furstenberg and Oskar Metsavaht for Osklen during the March 8-19 run at the cultural institution SESC’s new flagship arts center in Belenzinho. Thousands are expected to check out MOVE!, which will overlap with the start of São Paulo Fashion Week.
Visionaire’s cofounder Cecilia Dean, who organized the project with art and fashion writer David Colman, said the aim is to get away from the invitation-only worlds of art and fashion. “Where others see clothing on mannequins or art hanging on walls, we see the merging of art and fashion as dynamic, full of movement, and human energy. I like to think we offer an ‘experience,’ more than just an exhibition to visit,” Dean said via e-mail.
Their Brazilian extravaganza is an offshoot of something first presented at the Museum of Modern Art’s MoMA PS1. Crowd favorites like “Looks” by Pruitt and Jacobs and “Splash” by Breuning and Rowley will be among the repeat performers. Many will certainly take notice of “Tree Pants” by Peter Coffin and Ellus, who have joined forces to deck out 10 or 15 human-size tree trunks in “fastidiously made custom-made jeans,” Colman said. Even more intriguing may be “Kalos,” a live water ballet as envisioned by Calvin Klein Collection’s Costa and Muniz that also will be projected with kaleidoscopic software and digital imaging on a wall screen. Visitors will be able to watch the performance through the main atrium’s glass floor.
“Ligatura” by Maurices Ianes and Alexandre Herchcovitch, “Grafiocouture” by Banzai Studio and Pedro Lourenco and “The Big Picture” by Ricardo de Castro and Dudu Bertholini for Neon are also in the works.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
