I Got a Really Cool Book: Yves Saint Laurent Dialog with Art

Today I got a REALLY COOL book!!!!!

This book is the catalog for the 2004 exhibtition”Yves Saint Laurent dialogue avec l’Art” at Fondation Pierre Bergé that chronicled YSL’s “dialogs” with art, beginning in 1965 with a collection of dresses based on Piet Mondrian’s compositions.

I had not known that YSL went on to design pieces inspired by Picasso, Matisse, Braque, Bonnard (one of my all-time favs), Léger, and Van Gogh as well as Pop Art and African Art in general.

From a NYTimes article at the time:  “But I never compared myself with these artists — that would be pretentious,” said Saint Laurent. “I just tried to be an artist in my own métier.”

Happy with my book and wearing my own Mondrian Cuff.

I got the book at Mast Books on Avenue A and 5th St NYC.

Me and Prince

So, I went to see Prince at MSG with my friend Jamie a few months ago.
A few things of note happened.
During one song, I saw a couple a few rows in front of us, the man was singing along to the lyrics to his woman. While lip synching he got down on one knee and opened a ring box. Apparently she said yes, because then they were jumping up and down hugging and kissing and we were all clapping.

The most significant thing: I rarely wear high heels, I never learned how to walk in them well, but I once found a pair I love at ARCHE, where my mom and European women buy their shoes. A pair of purple nubuck booties with mirrored wedges. So, I was wearing flats at MSG on this night, but someone else was wearing these very same booties. Prince! I am 99% sure that he was wearing the same ones, and he had a much easier time princing around in them. We both have them in purple, naturally.

Proof?

Update

I took a break from playing shows this fall to focus on my jewelry line IMK Jewelry.  (Wow, I’ve become the character I was playing/sort of making fun of in Alec Coiro’s musical farce Fashion Party– one of my lines was “Can’t I just focus on my handbag line for now??”) Anyhoo, I’ll be playing shows […]

Lipstick Results

The lipstick poll is tied at 44-44! Thank you to everyone who came out to vote. Honestly, when I left for the concert yesterday Red was up by one point, but since Blue had some serious support and was the more exciting option I went for it. It was more of an opinion poll or […]

Sorry, no midget fondling here.

Did you know that I can see what search terms people enter to find this website? Lately there have been several “midget fondling” queries! The words “midget” and “fondling” occur separately in captions on the Halloween pics page. I will be playing at Lit on Nov 12. Details TBA.

Bizarro Rebecca Schiffman

Yesterday night, for the first time, I met my pen pal of two years, Rebecca Schiffman – from Nashville! She is 23 and, just as my father is a Rabbi, I believe her father is a Baptist minister. Just so you know, if you google me and you see that a Rebecca Schiffman worked on […]

Happy New Year. I am working at a law firm for two more weeks doing really boring work that in theory a robot could do. No shows coming up.
