Patricia Field is on to her next project.
She has transformed her Web site, paticiafield.com from an arm of her former brick-and-mortar store into an online art fashion gallery.
On the site, she will offer one-of-a-kind art fashion pieces, as well as made-to-order garments custom painted by artists for both women and men.
For example, the site features a Scooter LaForge painted Manhattan dinner jacket for $500; an Iris Bonner Thesepinklips girl-power pants for $150; a Stud Muffin skull trip backpack for $275, and a Suzan Pitt “Big Flowers” coat for $800.
To mark the changeover, Field will be curating an exhibition of Art/Fashion at How? Happening: An Arturo Vega Project in New York at 6 East 1st Street. The exhibition will open to the public from March 25 through March 27.
A native New Yorker, boutique owner and stylist, Field has worked closely with artists including Keith Haring, Scooter LaForge and Jean-Michel Basquiat, who sold painted garments in her famous Eighth Street shop.
Presenting hand-chosen artists such as LaForge, Suzan Pitt, Jody Morlock, Iris Barbee Bonner, Thomas Knight, Suzanne Mallouk and Kyle Brincefield, the gallery invites the view to explore made to order pieces, that can be delivered worldwide.
As reported, after 50 years in business, Patricia Field shuttered her 4,000-square-foot store at 306 Bowery in New York last month. She moved into that location in 2012, after more than 30 years in the West Village at 10 East 8th street, and six years at 302 Bowery. She said she planned to shut her store to pursue other projects.
She told WWD in December, “After 50 successful years of being able to do just that, I decided it was time to close this chapter and make more room for all the branches that have sprung directly from that tree; continuing my film and television work, styling, designing, and pursuing brand-new projects that have been offered to me that I have not had time before to develop.”
