A celebration of the work of Norman Parkinson, whose work has rarely been shown in France, will be unveiled at Espace La Vallée®, the contemporary art gallery at La Vallée Village, on 15 September 2012.
Developed exclusively in partnership with the Norman Parkinson Estate, the ‘Travel in Style’ exhibition of 23 iconic fashion photographs transports visitors to Parkinson’s land of ‘timeless elegance’, where the art of refined travel meets distinguished adventurers.
With a career spanning more than 60 years, including time spent at Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and as the official photographer of the British royal family, Parkinson is known throughout the world for inventing modern fashion photography and revolutionising the genre. Highlighting women in motion by bringing together the chic humour and irreverent glamour of the time, Parkinson captured the essence of enduring style that seduced imaginations from the 1950s to the 1970s.
La Vallée Village, one of the Collection of Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages in Europe, provides the perfect backdrop to such an iconic exhibition. The Village embodies traditional Parisian chic within a tranquil setting, offering guests the opportunity to enjoy five-star service, as well as exceptional savings on the world’s leading luxury designer brands including Furla, Armani, Paul Smith and Diane von Furstenberg, all year round.
The exhibition is open at Espace La Vallée® from 15 September 2012 – 6 January 2013, daily from 10 am to 7 pm, admission is complimentary.
