Highsnobette-Frederique Malle (15)

Devoted to the artistry of scent making  Frédéric Malle discussed his book at an intimate gathering at  the  Frédéric Malle boutique on Madison avenue eralier this week.  We had an opportunity to hear his thoughts on fragrance  as an ar, t his belief that choosing a fragrance is a process that requires time,  and that while some scents can be preferred by men or women he’s not attached to the concept of a specific scent  for specific gender. . On hand were some of our favorites like Maurice roucel’s ‘ Musc Ravageur’ ,  Ralf Schwieger’s ‘ Lipstick rose” ,  Pierre Bourbon’s’ Iris Poudre’ among many others. As well as a complete assortment of body products and candles. Setup like a cozy living room the store’s entrance is as discrete as its interior. See a peek on the flip.  The book with forward by the legendary Catherine Deneuve is available here.

Exhibit: Iris Van Herpen At The Groninger Museum

1+Skeleton+dress+HR 4 474x540 Exhibit: Iris Van Herpen At The Groninger Museum

Netherland’s Groninger Museum opened its Iris van Herpen exhibit earlier this month, a retrospective of the Dutch couture designer applauded for her striking creations of organic, surreal, futuristic wearable (or are they?) pieces unlike the works of her peers. The museum’s website dishes in on the exhibit details:

“Each collection has its own narrative, and wearability is not the ultimate criterion. For instance, Radiation Invasion is about the invisible radiation and signals all around us that make telecommunication possible. The Synesthesia collection has a neurological phenomenon as its point of departure, where a mingling of sensory perceptions occurs. There are people who can ‘see’ music, for example, or can ‘taste’ colours.”

To have a retrospective exhibit at just 27, life is not too shabby for van Herpen. If you’re among the lucky few who happen to be in the neighborhood, seeing these designs in the flesh is a must. For those interested in planning around this exhibit, it will be displayed in the museum until September 23rd.- Rika N.Images via Groninger Museum.
