Dear Shaded Viewers and dear Diane,
Last night, on an unseasonably mild Antwerp evening, Giuseppe Virgone (ex-La Cambre in Brussels) presented his cool collection as a site specific installation at ra, where the selling floor has been cleared to install a faux marble amphitheatre for his young gladiators. The bespoke men's collection called 'un animal devra mourir' had medieval overtones and featured beautiful masks by Guillaume Airaud.
An installation on his collection will be on view at ra from Wednesday, www.ra13.be
