PARIS — Visitors to Paris have another destination to add to their schedules — a brand new arts center in the heart of the Marais. Lafayette Anticipations, the art foundation backed by Groupe Galeries Lafayette opens to the public on Saturday. The centerpiece of a broader rejuvenation of the historic neighborhood, it is housed in a 19th-century industrial space remade by Rem Koolhaas, the Dutch architect known for upending conventions.
“This architectural endeavor bridges the tension between pragmatic flexibility and conservation requirements, in a place where preservation regulations are extremely strict,” said Guillaume Houzé, the group’s director of image and patronage who managed the project.
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business. Not only will the actor appear in its global ad campaigns, but he will also create a capsule with designer Stuart Vevers. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. #wwdfashion
