"Well when I went to Central Saint Martins in 1990 I had already worked for Hamnett, Galliano, PX etc. and had been hanging out on the scene since I was 14 so I felt quite jaded by everything even before I began. I saw the art school ethos as irrelevant to the outside world. All the students could do these amazing illustrations – like John (Galliano) – but didn't know what a bust dart was. Ironically, it was me that went on to do an MA in fine art and show with a gallery… so I'll shut up now!"

In the late 80's/Early 90's Sebastian Cardin captivated Paris with a long lithe body, a boy beauty and a sang froid so chilly it impressed even...the French. Lagerfeld liked it. As did the New Turks, Mugler and Gaultier who used Sebastian's boy/girl fusion to maximum effect. That apparent indifference, that supreme lack of desperation...it served her well on the pages of Elle when that Early 90's Elle with it punchy, color-driven layouts, put the fear of God in the Grand Lady glossies.

Current Viewing: L'Hypothese du Tableau Vole : (Hypothesis Of The Stolen Painting): Directed by Raoul RuizSubmitted by Wayne on Fri, 2014-08-01 14:54.
"Inspired by the idiosyncratic personality of author, theorist, and artist Pierre Klossowski whose densely cerebral erotic fiction was influenced by such notorious literary figures as the Marquis de Sade and the excommunicated surrealist Georges Bataille, as well as Klossowski's final novel La Baphomet, The Hypothesis of the Stolen Painting is an indelibly haunting, endlessly fascinating, and maddeningly abstruse composition on Pirandellian ambiguity and the inherent subjectivity of perspective."
