RIDING IN ON A WHITE HORSE
At his New York fashion week party, Marc Jacobs will be celebrating the launch of Gloss, a collection of Chris von Wangenheim's images. The book is published by Rizzoli.
Marc Jacobs' DRESS TO KILL CODE, as described in the invite to his upcoming New York fashion week party, could appropriately read like captioning for von Wangenheim's fashion photos. Von Wangenheim's images capture the shiny, provactively glam fashion of 1970's. He was a contemporary of Guy Bourdin and Helmut Newton.
"SEQUINS, SKY HIGH STILETTOS, MIRRORED AVIATORS, METAL MESH, COWL NECKLINE HALTERS, GLOSS-Y SKIN."
We hear you, Marc. Now, where's our invite?
