PINK: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color. Go see it at FIT (7th and 27th.) Men abandoned colorful clothes when they became capitalists. (?) By the early 1900’s, Paul Poiret (dress left) mocked pale pastels with names like “Nymph’s Thigh,” and Elsa Schiaparelli called her favorite color “shocking pink.”
Go see Jewelry: The Body Transformed. At the Met until February 24. Jewelry as portable art which can be shared and over which you have complete control. Absolutely gorgeous jewels. And some politically troubling modern statement pieces too.
Are you ever in South Beach? Go see something at the completely revitalized Colony Theater. The last production, One Night In Miami, was amazing.
We agree that periodic leadership change is good. But be strategic. Right now, we need Pelosi. And we must not fall for a negative campaign targeting age and sex.
You know you have always wanted to try Brooklyn wine. Here’s a really good one, from Red Hook. Enjoy.
Went to see the (relatively small) exhibit at the Met celebrating the three hundredth birthday of Thomas Chippendale, his influential mid-1700s design book, and how it influenced design in places like Newport, Philadelphia and New York. Can brown furniture can be back as part of a more modern whole. Why not?
