The must see:
The Political Line,
Political provocateur and the pop-art pioneer of his generation, Keith Haring's works have graced everything from the Berlin Wall to Nicholas Kirkwood heels. This retrospective at the Musée d'Art Moderne – which includes pieces from Elton John's private collection – will focus on his response to AIDS and racism in the 1980s. April 19-Aug 18; mam.paris.fr
Who: Pop star of fashion design
who always hits the top spot.
Why now: His SS13 line, inspired
by Andy Warhol's Factory, is one of
the season's most standout
collections – monochrome and
graphic with a nod to the free-
spirited artists of the '60s.
Hot pieces: Geometric suiting
and column dresses, not forgetting
the covetable striped, pointed flats.
The designer's take: "I love to
take things that are everyday and
make them into the most luxurious things in the world."
