TI received this email from a reader this morning concerning the last Dior Homme show. I loved the honesty of the viewpoint and I'd like to invite more readers to share their perspective here. This is what TI member RB had to say:

WHAT's BETTER THAN DANCING IN AN ART GALLERY ANYWAY?

Dust off those dancing shoes art groupies. Exit Art is calling for you!

Exit Art Fundraiser

Friday, July 11, 8pm - midnight

Join us for Everybody's a VIP, a fundraising party for the exhibition Summer Mixtape Volume One, featuring a night of dance-able music spanning hip-hop, electronica, old school, orchestral beats, and down beat. Bring your people!

Exit Art's summer exhibition, Summer Mixtape Volume One: the Get Smart Edition, opens on Thursday, July 24. Drawing on influences from hip-hop and popular culture, the exhibition seeks to evoke the appropriated, personalized essence of the mixtape. Summer Mixtape features 27 up-and-coming artists from the greater New York area and works that range widely in theme and medium, mirroring the diverse sights, sounds and cultures of the New York streets. The exhibition, curated by Exit Art's Associate Curator, Herb Tam, and Assistant Curator, Lauren Rosati, will also feature a jukebox with mixtapes produced by the artists and some special guests.

The product is CK Jeans, but note the return of that late 80's Calvin Klein font treatment. TI loves that they twerked it!

STEEL MEETS WOOD IN THE BOUROULLEC MIND

The Steelwood Chair 2008 by the Bouroullec BrothersThe Steelwood Chair 2008 by the Bouroullec Brothers

TI saw the "Steelwood" chair by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec floating in the window of the MOMA design store on Spring Street and stopped dead in his idle tracks. Organic bonded to inorganic. Warmth fused with coldness. Romance and technology. If this isn't the chair of 2008 then I can't imagine what is! And affordable too with prices hovering around $530. Very instant collectible!

STRUCK SPEECHLESS

Daniela de Jesus from Major has one of "those" facesDaniela de Jesus from Major has one of "those" faces

Recently I've been thinking about the line between commercial and edge. Who fixed that line? What is that line based on? Is obvious beauty always boring? And is an unconventional face automatically photogenic?
