SAN DIEGO — Bikini clad babes are a crowd-drawing tradition at the ASR show, but some paint and brushes gave the cheesecake poster signings a run for their money at last weekend’s show here.
Across from the Reef Girls podium were three artists quietly concentrating on a mural that mixed images of tribal swirls, technical diagrams, human figures and graffiti-painted shoes. The group are part of The Ninth Concept, a Paris-based collective of 12 artists who mix painting, graphic design, graffiti and collage into their work. Known simply as Jerk, Ned and Steph, they make up the founding members of the crew. “The group is about sharing a human adventure and making art more public,” said Ned. “To work with a big company like Reef gives us exposure, but they also give us freedom.”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
