Give Pamela Love A Hug When You See Her Tonight


Pamela Love did not have a good day yesterday. The jewelry designer was loading out materials for her installation at Milk & MAC, which opened today, and wound up knocking out a water main and flooding her basement in two feet of water. Shortly after the plumber arrived, Love was informed by her boyfriend that her cat had fainted. “I mean, uccccch,” Love said this afternoon, getting the bad news out of the way. “I have to rush the cat to the vet, I’ve got musical equipment in my basement that’s just destroyed…Yesterday was pretty much the worst day of my life, ever. So this,” she added, “better be the best day, to make up for it.” Love will be getting plenty of hugs tonight—pals such as Olivier Zahm, Chiara Clemente, and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld are expected to come by for cocktails in the goth-hippie encampment Love has set up on Milk’s second floor. The jewelry displayed therein shows Love elaborating on a variety of signature pieces from seasons past—she’s made her claw bracelet into earrings that look like hoops gripping the lobe, for example, and modularized her heishi bead bracelets (lock two together to make a choker, six to make a belt, etc.). Love is also debuting a collaboration with the brand Black Sheep and Prodigal Sons at the show and has recruited two of her buddies to design poster art befitting its music festival vibe. “Seriously, thank God for my friends,” Love commented. “I really just want to have a good time with everyone tonight. I mean, one night. I have to take my cat to the neurologist tomorrow.”
