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.

TAR Magazine Shoot

The fall 2010 issue of TAR Magazine is out now.

Recently, I got to reunite with the main cast of Guild & Greyshkul Gallery (if it had been an office sitcom which ran for five years) to make this fashion photo shoot happen.  This spread features six rather mysterious photos but so much work and fun and work that I can’t describe went into them behind the scenes.  And I was only there for a portion of the work and fun.

New Studio: Bird Break-In

After shlepping the last of my tools from Flux Work Studio back uptown, I opened the door to the new IMK Jewelry Studio to start setting up and was surprised by a sparrow!


She flew in through the valve in a 6″ duct that used to be connected to a clothes dryer and that I had propped open to let in some air.  I opened the door so she could fly out through the lobby but instead she flew up the stairs!  So Robert, the doorman, opened a bunch of windows in the upper stairwells and she got out.

I think it was a good omen.

Inspiration: Françoise Hardy

Paco Rabanne‘s iconic linked dresses are (obviously) a big inspiration for me, so I was extremely pleasantly surprised when I only recently discovered that singer-songwriter Françoise Hardy was featured on the cover of Rabanne’s biography, and was a huge fan of his.

Françoise Hardy was my first, and for a long time, only female influence as a singer-songwriter. I admired her unaffected charmp and aspired to her beautiful music and lyrics. So now, having exhaustively google-image-searched her, I am in awe of her personal fashion style throughout her entire career!

Here are a ton of pictures!

Origin of the Name IMK

All through his life- even when he was a great man with the world at his feet- he was to feel this gap: something at the bottom of his heart of which he was aware, and ashamed, but which he did not understand…

He was the eldest son, so he was bound to be knighted, but he would not call himself Sir Lancelot. He would call himself the Chevalier Mal Fet- the Ill-Made Knight…

So far as he could see- and he felt that there must be some reason for it somewhere- the boy’s face was as ugly as a monster’s in the King’s menagerie. He looked like an African ape…

His Word was valuable to him not only because he was good but also because he was bad. It is the bad people who need to have principles to restrain them. For one thing, he liked to hurt people. It was for the strange reason that he was cruel, that the poor fellow never killed a man who asked for mercy, or committed a cruel action which he could have prevented.

-“The Ill-Made Knight” by T.H. White

IMK stands for The Ill-Made Knight, Lancelot’s self-appointed epithet and book three of “The Once and Future King“, T.H. White’s version of the Arthurian legend. For years, I’ve known I wanted to someday have a jewelry line and call it IMK.
He was the eldest son, so he was bound to be knighted, but he would not call himself Sir Lancelot. He would call himself the Chevalier Mal Fet- the Ill-Made Knight…
