Now that fashion endorsements by Hollywood stars are as common as ragweed, progressive fashion makers are moving on. “To be perceived as cutting edge, they must make use of a different kind of celebrity,” said Ms. Currid, the author of the Warhol book. “They need an art star.”
Interesting (and inevitable) article in the NY Times Style Section today about the Louis Vuitton Store at the MOCA/Murakami exhibit. It makes the larger point that art, like celebrity is being spliced frantically into fashion's gene pool to keep the whole thing ticking. 1000 thoughts are unspooling . What if the art booms ends abruptly? What does the fashion world wants from art apart from pretty pictures and easy cachet? Just how big is the overlap between an art audience and a fashion audience ANYWAY? It is like one gallery owner in Paris hissed "Art today is for the very rich and fashion is for the middle class who want to fool each other into thinking they are rich" . ...Just coming back to after a loooooong night of nightcrawling and will post more + a POV on LA nightlife as soon as the word machine kicks in.
