THE LAST BRUCENNIAL – ‘GIRLS ONLY’
MARCH 7 – APRIL 4, 2014
837 WASHINGTON ST, MEATPACKING DISTRICT, NYC – HRS: WED-SUN / 12-6 PM
the BEST of the – OPENING NITE CROWD !!
THE DOWNTOWN STARS . . COME OUT TO TWINKLE & MINGLE !!
on the right – DJ, musician and artist SCOTT MOU, with his girlfriend, CHARLOTTE de LARMINAT.
note the jacket.
Charlotte has a piece in the Brucennial.
Scott told me he had been very busy during last week’s fashion week, DJ-ing.
the last time I caught SCOTT was way back in FALL 2004 at LITTLE CAKES !!

CHARLOTTE de LARMINAT, mixed media. BRUCENNIAL 2014.
note the old wood base, and metal frame-working. nice contrast with the huge violet bow.
not to forget that . . middle part !!
hardcore girlie, or what !!
ABIGAIL CHAPIN . . of THE CHAPIN SISTERS.
founded in L.A. in 2004, the band is now NYC-based, and their newest record, A DATE WITH THE EVERLY BROTHERS, is not only mighty fine listening – but has great graphics, style, and . . well, visual p-u-n-c-h.
next image, check.
for sure, hit: THE CHAPIN SISTERS – SING THE EVERLY BROTHERS . . ‘LOVE HURTS’ !! . . . sweet.
authentic utility jackets have always been fun, esp on the street.
they have always been a huge thrift shop find, or a personal badge of honor, esp if you or someone you know – actually works for a corporation that hands out – uniform/work gear.
but, quelle / how on point, this week.
did you catch the ‘bad try’, ill-conceived high-couture version of a work jacket unleashed on an unsuspecting fashion audience in Milan – by MOSCHINO COUTURE last week ?
McDonalds, NOT !!
Marc Jacobs, NOT !!
any merit ? NOT !!
TIME NEWSFEED reports: the JEREMY SCOTT first-time collection for MOSCHINO . . is described by STYLE.COM’S TIM BLANKS as . .
“a mutant hybrid of Ronald McDonald and Coco Chanel” – !!
actually, those words are too kind, in my opinion. it’s really – NOT very good.
see for yourself: MOSCHINO McDONALDS by JEREMY SCOTT/ugh!!.
leave it to the art world to have the final say – the real deal, rules.
thank you Charlotte de Larminat, for that timely note.
though funny, a lot of SCOTTS . . in the news this week, L’Wren Scott, Scott Mou and Jeremy !!
you’ve really got to dig this silver surfer’s solution of sporting short pants, in this case – baggy athletic shorts – ala Pharrell Williams, in cold weather – dark grey wool tights !!
and looking – good !!
make that 2 !! local kid . . street stars !!
I’m guessing it’s pretty politically incorrect to say aloud – but he has got the JEAN MICHEL ‘radiant’ look, down – for sure.
it’s unknown whether he has . . the talent ?
but something is going on there, for sure.
BERND has been on the scene for a long long time, at least back to the early 80s . .
he’s definitely . . an opening fixture & a party down hard fanatic.
though his soup-ed old convertible parked outside many an opening – has probably garnered more fame, than he has !!
so, I’m happy to report, BERND NABER . . has finally achieved some real fame, for himself.
or is that . . notoriety !!
he and a few of his dearest pals star in that DUMPSTER DIVING DOCUMENTARY, ‘SPOILS: EXTRAORDINARY HARVEST’ – !!
that just burst upon on the scene a few months back !!
BUT not to worry, it’s a just a passionate ‘hobby’ for Bernd. sorry to burst the narrative bubble,
sorry to break the ‘pity’ spell, but he actually owns the property that features at the film’s beginning, and it’s in Brooklyn – so go figure !!
funny, how you can come to NYC and spend your whole life trying to make it, only . . to back into success by way of a well-loved . . pastime !!
ain’t that the truth !!
and with those fighting words, dumpster diving and success in the art world in the same sentence, we’ll leave you to contemplate your own private Idaho potato.
er, I mean dreams . . .
