Since Helmut Newton’s death, France has yet to show a retrospective of his work until now. A photographer known for provocation, eroticism, sometimes violence and plenty of ‘tongue & cheek’ humor, this exhibit will include more than two hundred of Helmut’s photographs, mostly original or vintage prints and a film by his wife June Newton. For this Helmut Newton retrospective presented at the Grand Palais (Southeast Gallery) March 24th – June 17th, Comme des Garçons was commissioned to create 400 of the delicious tees below to commemorate this event.
At 60 Euros ($85USD), it is definitely a bargain for CdG. I just love the simplicity of this tee with the interesting front image and the back graphic Helmut Newton logo followed by CdG’s name on the lower right.
Available at Grand Palais or boutiquesdesmusees.fr during the exhibition.
