When Art and Fashion Collide: Master Pieces
Installation 1: Gilbert & George by Tatty Devine
The biform, eccentric world of art stars Gilbert & George has been delightfully extended to incorporate a range by London-based jewellery geniuses, Tatty Devine. Highlights include gin bottle pieces inspired by their 1972 work, Gordon's Makes Us Drunk; an example of which is these rather natty cufflinks for the artistically-aware, but perhaps borderline alcohol-dependent, gent about town. Our personal favourite is, however, the classic G&G glasses-on-a-string necklace, that we'll be investing in so as to wander around feeling slightly akin to Janine from Ghostbusters.
Gilbert & George signature necklace, £36, Gin Cufflinks £27, and Small Glasses Necklace, £27; all by Tatty Devine. www.tattydevine.com
Installation 2: MAC's Plasma Blu
If you were really committed to pulling off Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 08 catwalk look, inspired by artist Richard Prince, you'd be dressed in a see-through nurse outfit, complete with lace hygiene mask and blue lipstick. Failing this, however, why not take a cue from LV's neon nails, and test out the blue cosmetic trend on a far safer region, while getting in some quality painting time. MAC's Plasma Blu, from their limited edition Neo-Sci Fi collection is the most vibrant shimmery blue we've found, and the collection also includes a yummy bumblebee yellow, Phosphor, for a heftier neon punch.
MAC Nail Lacquer in Plasma Blu, £8; available from MAC counters and www.maccosmetics.co.uk
Installation 3: Sébastien Tellier @ American Apparel
Last spotted careering around a Serbian stage in a golf cart as France's 2008 Eurovision entry; avant-garde musician Sébastien Tellier is now turning his attention to a rather sexy collaboration with one of our very favourites, American Apparel. In honour of his new Daft-Punk produced album, Sexuality (an eleven-track ode to the physical act of love), AA and Tellier have created the 'SexualiT' and 'SexualiTank', available from stores for a limited time. Given that Tellier was frankly robbed in Belgrade, you might want to further show your support by making like his backing singers and teaming the tops with a beard and sunglasses combo. Please?
