Andy Warhol, Flowers and Florida

June 15, 2018

In May, Interview magazine closed its doors. It was a magazine founded by Andy Warhol and British journalist John Wilcock in 1969. Cue a recent trip to Florida where I was intrigued to discover a Warhol exhibit. The interesting part is that it was being held at a botanical garden. I was intrigued. I knew Warhol from his iconic Campbell's Soup Cans artwork and iconic Marilyn Monroe pieces, but flowers?

Yes. Flowers. The Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, FL, created a must-see Warhol exhibit.

"Consummately cosmopolitan and cool, Andy Warhol in the great outdoors seems like an oxymoron," Marie Selby Botanical Gardens shared via their website. "Yet the groundbreaking artist known for his Pop Art multiples of celebrities and soup cans created more than 10,000 images of flowers over the course of his career."

The exhibit includes some art installations (not Warhol pieces) on the grounds, along with photographs of Warhol, from him fully dressed in a canoe (he was always in "character") to skiing to enjoying his Montauk home in New York, within the exhibit space. And of course, you get to see a curated selection of his floral artwork. 

As someone who always found Warhol fascinating - his one-of-a-kind viewpoint, I really enjoyed this take on Warhol. It was a nice blend of gaining a bit more insight into Warhol the person, along with Warhol the artist.

The Marie Selby Botanical Gardens' "Warhol: Flowers In the Factory" exhibit runs through June 30.

 P.S. It was getting warm in Florida (and humid) so be sure to pack an Adea Short Sleeve V Neck Tee.

In the late summer and fall of 2018 a tsunami of publicity for the movie Crazy Rich Asians hit America. In August there was a write-up in the New York Post, New Yorker and the Weekend Financial Times (a big, bold headline on the front page – very unusual).

Looking at AI

January 02, 2019

We’re entering a brand new year so I believe it’s time to tackle a subject I’ve been avoiding: Artificial Intelligence. Why have I been skirting around AI for so long? Full disclosure: No matter how much I read about it – I still don’t really grasp it.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
