If you find yourself in San Diego, check out the program at Rady Shell, a new outdoor concert venue near the city’s marina. The design created by Tucker Sadler Architects feels positive and is reminiscent of the TWA Flight Center with its saarine red seating. See a performance of the San Diego Symphony clad in something that resonates with 1960s sensibility; maybe a vintage dress, Belle Vivier heels, a white Staud leather bag and baby tires?
“Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams” from the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn
Last week, New York received the dazzling, awe-inspiring, so beautiful you might feel passed out, “Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams.” The traveling exhibition was first presented at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and reached the United States after being slightly edited by the curators Florence Müller and Matthew Yokobosky. Included in the show are Dior icons such as the bar suit and the Avedon-famous column dress, which was photographed on Dovima in front of a clique of elephants. Do the show justice on your visit: wear a full Dior outfit and don’t forget a splash of Miss Dior.
“Based on Art: 150 Years of Women at Yale,” New Haven, Connecticut
Open now until January 9, 2022
Visit the Louis Kahn-designed museum in Yale and see On the Basis of Art: 150 Years of Women at Yale, celebrating Yale-trained female artists from the international art scene. The show, which opened last weekend, features works by Wangechi Mutu, Mickalene Thomas, Maya Lin, Irene Weir, and others. Take everything with you, as you guessed it, clothing and accessories from female labels and retailers. Consider a tie-dye slip dress from Collina Strada, shoes from Brother Vellies, a pretty pink bag from Hunting Season, and a pair of earrings from The SIL.
Alimentari Beach, Montauk, New York
In the room that once housed a tacombi is Alimentari Beach, a supplier of Italian delicacies such as pasta, artisanal preserves and cheese. Get provisions for the beach house where you might be spending the weekend, or take a seat in the restaurant and enjoy a piece of crisp, thin pizza. The dress code is obviously causal, it’s Montauk and all. Put on a Cynthia Rowley dress (she’s a local), stack some We Can’t Drive bracelets on your wrist, and slip into Jil Sander slides. With a wicker bag in tow, you’re ready for a (great) day.
