I felt so clever to have scooped up a bunch of designer, hardly worn clothes last year at the amazing charity event hosted by Club 21 but have actually now come to the realisation that Donna Karen doesn’t really fit in to my life as well as I thought she might (or maybe it’s just that I’ve eaten too much Christmas pudding and it’s really the other way round).
However, my DKNY dress (worn above and bought at the same sale) is luckily v useful and slightly less scary to wear.
On the basis it looks identical to a contemporary painting, what better place to give it an airing than the launch of the new abstract exhibition at my fabulous cousin’s art gallery Collector’s Contemporary last Thursday?
Hermès also launched their own art exhibition this week. Couleurs de l’ombre – which opened on Tuesday – is the culmination of their really rather amazing ten year collaboration with the Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto and is currently showing at the Tyler Print Institute.
I was thrilled to be asked to attend in my capacity as Changmoh Girl – an experience only slightly marred by a wet hairline from the recent facial that I had dashed from. Good look.
GC, who was there with her beautiful croc-choc brown birkin, promised me she couldn’t really tell and, besides, the arm candy and general scarf wearing was fabulously distracting:
The exhibition was centred around the subtle gradations of morning sunlight as seen through a crystal prism by the artist, each and every day, over a staggering ten year period.
The exhibition ‘Couleurs de l’ombre’ is his chromatic epiphany transposed (somehow) on to beautiful, large, limited edition silk scarves – all for sale, of course.
They hung like billowing sails (each one is 140cm x 140cm) on the opening night – it would almost be a shame to roll one up and wear it – and will do so until 2nd March when the exhibition comes to an end.
