Roundup: Maison Chloé, Blue Ivy, the Museum of Broken Relationships, and More

+

A lot goes down in a week. From the latest celebrity drama to the newest must-have fashion trend, it can be hard to keep up. Luckily, we’re here for you with a curated list of the week’s most can’t-miss cultural moments. No need to thank us.



The exhibition: The newly-opened Maison Chloé in Paris houses the French fashion house’s archives and showrooms and will also play host to a variety of exhibitions, the first of which explores the relationship between the brand and seminal fashion photog Guy Bourdin. Shot between the 1950s and the ’80s, Bourdin employs his signature transgressive style to question notions of just who the Chloé woman is.



The collaboration: While everyone was busy freaking out about Supreme x Louis Vuitton, Colette and H&M quietly announced a joint collection set to hit stores on August 21. Inspired by H&M’s pricier Studio line, the nine-piece capsule is decidedly fall-ready. A slightly confusing poncho-windbreaker hybrid seems poised for popularity among the streetwear set.



The pop-up: While the Museum of Broken Relationships sounds like a fictional place you might find yourself visiting during a particularly fruitful session with your therapist, it is, in fact, a real (albeit roving) institution that is coming to New York from July 16 – 17, following stints in L.A. and Zagreb, Croatia. Full of ephemera from failed relationships donated by New Yorkers, it seems like the perfect place to go, wander, have a good cry, and then maybe lock eyes with a beautiful stranger.



The bonus track: It would appear that Blue Ivy Carter inherited her father Jay-Z’s rap skills. A bonus track on the physical release of Jay’s much-hyped new album 4:44 features the 5-year-old spitting semi-nonsensical lyrics like “never seen a ceiling in my whole life” with a natural flow that’s better than, well, most of us could manage. Oh, and she also drops a “boom shakalaka” or seven in there for good measure. At this rate, she’ll probably have a demo in, what, three years?



The book: Seminal Gen X rock band Garbage (remember them?) just released a coffee table book called This Is the Noise That Keeps Me Awake, and in addition to keeping you awake, it’s likely to remind you just how much you loved Shirley Manson back in the day. Which, lucky for you, because Garbage just released a new album and they’re also touring this summer with Blondie (!!!) to promote it. Everything ’90s really is new again, you guys.
