We may well be living in the Age of the Size Issue. There are still plenty of stick-thin girls, God knows, and now a few plus-sized figures in the glossies, too, but here’s a question: What about the regular girls? The ones neither Rubenesque or Giacometti-ish, but just plain old average size? For these ladies, performance artist K8 Hardy is boldly stepping into the breach. Hardy, whose zine Fashionfashion was recently installed (in an oversized version) at the Tate Modern, is launching a new collection with Nolita’s JF & Son, and she’s using herself—a size 8—as the fit model. Called J’APPROVE, the collection draws on her artistic experiences for inspiration—hence boxy smocks from the studio, embellished hot pants from the stage—and it will debut at JF & Son in a day-long presentation on February 17. Hardy herself will be modeling the looks, presumably with an artistic flourish, but this isn’t a performance: The garments will be available for sale at the shop or online the same day. Nous approvons, aussi.
