NEW YORK — The late Art Cooper’s family, friends, protégés and colleagues from across fashion and publishing filled Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall Wednesday morning to pay tribute to a man who ended up larger than life in nearly everything he did. Cooper, 65, died of a stroke on June 9.
In between speakers, who included Ralph Lauren and Condé Nast chief executive officer Steven Florio, Harry Connick Jr. and his quartet played a few sentimental standards: “As Time Goes By,” “One for the Road” (a Sinatra classic and a Cooper favorite) and “Once in Love With Amy,” the last an emotional tribute to the late GQ editor’s wife, Amy Levin Cooper.
