A Sunny Sunday Afternoon at the Brant Foundation With Raf Simons and a Post-Cavalli Peter Dundas

Just weeks after stepping down from Roberto Cavalli, Peter Dundas found himself in Greenwich, Connecticut, on Sunday when he joined the art crowd at the Brant Foundation Art Study Center’s opening of a new exhibition by the Canadian artist Steven Shearer. He was not the only designer present: Ever appreciative of youth culture, Raf Simons also turned up to take in Shearer’s spread of suburban teen-focused works—a mix of collages, poems, and paintings also appreciated by familiar art-world figures like Urs Fischer, Dan Colen, Lucy Chadwick, and, of course, the beloved Brants.
