Always feels a little like an insult to add unnecessary words to an image of a work of art. I want to own and frame these Alexander McQueen shoes for spring 2015.
Andy Warhol cohort and legendary Factory photographer Billy Name has a new book coming out in December from Reel Art Press. The Silver Age is packed with iconic black and white photography from NY’s famed period, when there were still no 7-Elevens to be found anywhere on the island and art world cynicism wasn’t just a marketing campaign. This massive volume covers 1964-68 with images of the usual suspects we can’t get enough of and obsess over: Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground, Nico, Edie Sedgwick and Bob Dylan. Put this on the gift list for young and old alike.

Happy Halloween. An oldie but goodie from a masquerade birthday party outside of London, in Longleat, for Ceawlin Thynn‘s 30th birthday in 2004. Probably the last time I came that close to wearing a mask, though I do manage to eat my fair share of Butterfingers each year. I’ll take a treat.

The things we do in college. S&M clubs, bands, parties, and student films. In honor of this weekend’s alumni weekend at Bard I dug my senior film project, Every Woman was once a little girl with Dreams, out of the dusty archives of my youth. It is so funny to watch now, all those familiar faces (Ian Mackaye is the young guy in the diner philosophizing on marriage, he drove up from DC for the fun of it and we filmed at the Red Hook Diner). I have never smoked a day in my life but apparently I thought it looked cool on film (it kind of does, sorry mom!) Lots of other cameos in the credits too if you look closely. Not sure how long I will leave this up on Vimeo but here it is in all it’s glory while I’ve got the guts. Oh and this is the film Miranda July told me she and her best friend would quote when they were feeling down about life and art, which is kind of the most awesome thing ever.
Love this Chloe bag for spring 2015.
