Article: Louis Vuitton takes on Yayoi Kusama's surreal polka dots

Louis Vuitton is set to unveil its latest artist collaboration next week and sure enough Marc Jacobs has managed to marry good taste with high art. For this latest turn, Yayoi Kusama’s surreal use of polka dots will be featured as a capsule collection scheduled to launch in two phases between July 10 and October. The first launch will be an array of limited-edition clothing and accessories such as pajamas, a trench coat, separates and jewelry that will coincide with a retrospective of Kusama’s work at the Whitney Museum of American Art opening July 12, as well as the exhibition already on view at London’s Tate Modern.

Skeletor in New York

The charity art show I am curating, Skeletor Saves, is this Thursday in NYC from 6-10. What started off as a crazy little idea has ballooned into an event of monstrous size! We could not be more thrilled. We took an 80s cartoon icon, He-Man, and built a star-studded celebrity art show around him and his Masters of the Universe.

Some heavy hitters are involved. Designer Marc Jacobs has sketched some characters for the show. Helmut Lang’s submission is modern and the opposite of He-Man’s over-the-top imagery. Porn stars Francois Sagat and Buck Angel turned artists for the event. Add other notable gays to the mix-Casey Spooner, Joey Arias, Raja from RuPaul’s Drag Race- and you have a show that NY Magazine calls “Brilliant/Highbrow.”

Take a bow, or not

As Fashion Week winds down here in the Big Apple and the dust settles many a gay are left talking about what’s happening in fashion. Yes, we gays discuss fashion. I know, shocking.

The press is picking up on a new trend that even I, one of the biggest gays in this oh-so gay town, could not possibly pull off. Bows. Yes, those bows. The ones on Minnie Mouse’s head and your Prom date’s satin pink dress. Those bows.
