November Roses

I live in an amazing place: on my bedside table are these gorgeous roses from my garden, but last night we lit a fire because it was so chilly. Oh, SoCal!

Avant

 The real reason we visited the Phoenix Art Museum was to see this exhibition, "Emphatics." These avant-garde fashions, now owned by the Phoenix Art Museum, are all from the collection of James and Karin Legato, who owned a boutique called Emphatics in Pittsburgh, where they developed relationships with many of the designers.

That's Norma Kamali up top...
 This is Jean[Paul Gautier, and it TOTALLY looks like me in the 1980s!
 Also Gautier.


 It's (Christian) Lacroix, dahling! (AbFab reference!)

 Thierry Mugler.
 Issey Miyake.
 This is also Miyake (swimsuit with built-in inflatable life ring).
 Alexander McQueen.
 Also McQueen...

There were also vitrines filled with ephemera (fashion show invites, look books, etc.), as well as giant screens with videos of fashion shows. So fun!

Balloon Art




While were in Phoenix for Thanksgiving with family, we went to the Phoenix Art Museum. Among other things, we experienced this artwork by Martin Creed: "Work. No. 2497. Half the air in a given space."

This is a small room filled with giant latex balloons. You enter on one side, walk (blindly) through the balloons, and come out the other side. It is trippy! I had a moment of panic, but it passed...

Gotta love contemporary art!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Hope you enjoyed your time with friends and family (or a peaceful day of solitude, if that's how you roll...

(I don't think that video works, alas--it's a behind-the-scenes look at the photo shoot.)
