Kai Kuhne Had An Arty Week
It’s no secret that women in the art world don’t mind going there a little with their fashion. (Please see: Cindy Sherman in Comme des Garçons’ bump dress.) Last week, prompted by his love of those ladies and the fact that the seven-day stretch was stacked with arty activities (Terence Koh and Cindy Sherman’s openings, the Guggenheim gala, the Metal Ball), Kai Kühne made it his mission to dress some of said world’s most stylish denizens. On that list were curator Yvonne Force Villareal (pictured, top right), Performa founder Roselee Goldberg (pictured, bottom right), artists Agathe Snow (pictured, bottom left) and Rita Ackermann, art lover Genevieve Jones, and gallerist Bronwyn Keenan (pictured, top left). Kühne’s Spring collection was filled with intricate and architectural tailoring inspired by leeks. (What could be artier than that?) For his part, Kühne told us that he enjoys giving creative women the feeling of being “female sculptures,” and frankly, they’re also a lot of fun.
