Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Animal Magnetism
The Brucennial, the art collective Bruce High Quality Foundation’s annual free-for-all expo, may pride itself on being the downtown alternative to a certain Biennial uptown, but at last night’s Vito Schnabel-hosted party for the show, furs—a 10021 staple if ever there was one—were on display. Chloë Sevigny and artist Aurel Schmidt both wore bold skin jackets to the event, as did The Smile’s Melia Marden. (Schmidt also wore a fur—a gray ombré one—to attend the Whitney Biennial opening last week.) They’re right in step with the mood of the coming season—Fall’s runways saw a profusion of fur, especially here in New York. What do you think? Is the blue-blood mainstay ready for a young-blood revival, or is this a look better left on the Upper East?
