Whether fashion is art or craft depends on whom you ask but this spring, critics can contemplate both designer and painter at the Louvre Museum in Paris. Top label Salvatore Ferragamo will sponsor Leonardo da Vinci’s latest exhibition, “The Saint Anne, Leonardo da Vinci’s Ultimate Masterpiece.” The recently restored painting will debut on March 29 and to celebrate the fashion label will present its Resort 2013 collection, designed by Massimiliano Giornetti, within the museum walls on June 12–a first for the Louvre. — Skye Kelton
