COLD FRONT: Guests at the Lanvin men’s show on Sunday did their best to keep warm as the snow continued to fall on Paris. Inside the Fine Arts School, where the display was held, Kanye West queued with other guests at a station where waiters dispensed hot drinks and cannelés, a rich and sticky pastry specialty from Bordeaux.
Fabrice Hyber had donned Sorel boots and a Canada Goose parka — perfect practice for spending time in Canada. Over the next few months, the French artist will be working with a team in Montréal on a video game called “Le Cyber,” based on his drawings and due to be unveiled at Monumenta in 2015 or 2016. “It’s an art game that will allow visitors to interact with the exhibition space. You will have to get up from your seat to be able to play,” he said.
Aaron Young played it cool in a leather biker jacket and wide-brimmed Borsalino hat — a gift from his fiancée, Laure Hériard Dubreuil. The artist has a slew of exhibitions coming up in locations as far-flung as Lebanon, Turkey and Germany, in addition to his second solo show at the Kukje Gallery in Seoul, South Korea.
Young has also designed a capsule collection for French contemporary brand Surface to Air, due to hit stores in February. The line for women and men, which he described as “aggressively poetic,” features prints based on his motorcycle burnout paintings. “It was kind of a small little foray to see what it would be like. I’m really interested to do something else, maybe on a larger scale, at some point,” he said.
Dubreuil, founder and buyer of The Webster Miami, said she has collaborated with Delfina Delettrez on an exclusive earring featuring a pink feather — a nod to the flamingo that features on the store’s logo.
