Matali Crassett is HOT!
Paris Fashion Week, Sept 30th - Oct 8th. Everybody waiting with bated breath to see what directional swerve Nicholas might pull onto the now hallowed runway of Balenciaga. By the weekend the mob will be dying for the Vuitton to come . But The Imagist will be playing hooky from all fashion obligations on the evening of Oct 6th which is Nuit Blanche (White Night) when every gallery and museum is open all night and all of Paris (from medevial churches to blank office building walls) turns into one massive art zone. Last year was a blast and destination No 1 for us in 07 will be the Peter Halley/Matali Crasset collaboration at Thaddaeus Ropac. We're mad for Matali. We think she's sooo hot in a medevial goth Jeanne D'arc way and if The Imagist were a print publication she'd be the cover (after MIA on Issue 1) . Crasset's work is not severe though. It's pop plastic but not stale 60's. Can't wait to see it mashed up with Halley!
