ART: American Sculptor Alice Aycock has turned the Upper East Side into an art gallery with her whirling and powerful installation “Park Avenue Paper Chase” stretching between 52nd and 66th streets.

FASHION: Corsages make their comeback at the houses of Fendi, Dries van Noten, and Céline as they celebrate the lapel flower in their A/W14 designs. Phoebe Philo stating “I very much wanted women in men’s clothing, but it was a complex idea so we bought it back to quite a feminine silhouette.”

OUR FAVORITE POST THIS WEEK: French jewelry designer Victoire de Castellane is credited with redefining and reviving haute joaillerie and her newest exhibit at the Gagosian Gallery is a masterpiece.
