Hello my N-words and my B-words, it's been such a fucking awesome week, starting on Wednesday when I went up to Kloof Street to check out this launch at no. 73, the home of Take Care and Adriaan Kuiters. Just to make sure we're all up to speed; for the last couple of seasons artist Jody Paulsen has joined the Adriaan Kuiters label, working together on collaborative ranges, designing the prints and involved in silhouette design as well, making the brand one of the more interesting labels out right now. In case you're not familiar with his work, check this post i did on his graduate show last year, no really go, it is fucking amazing. So amazing that we put it on the cover of Visi magazine (that would be the decor and architecture magazine I work with) earlier this year.
On Thursday, there were a couple of art openings which were really amazing. Then on Friday I found myself around a dinner table with Jochen Zeitz and Thomas Heatherwick, I don't normally namedrop, but some people have done such amazing shit with their lives that their names deserve to be dropped, like seriously, no shame in my game. So the week in general was such a fucking treat, what more can an art fag ask for? Anyway, I'm gonna post the pics from the Thursday exhibitions up for Monday, be sure to come back and check them out. For now, enjoy these pretty young thangs and envy them their champagne (read sparkling wine) set lives.
