Fendi On Wheels

-------


The 17th annual ArtWalk benefit hits New York tonight, with co-chairs Alec Baldwin, Carey Lowell, Richard Gere, and Coco Rocha hosting one of the social calendar’s most prominent benefit art auctions, with proceeds going to New York City’s Coalition for the Homeless. Shepard Fairey, Jenny Holzer, Ed Ruscha, and Richard Phillips are among the artists who have donated their work to the silent and live auctions, but it’s a piece from evening sponsor Fendi that may have the evening’s fashion-world attendees buzzing. The label’s Selleria bike has Roman leather seats, wheel and handle covers, pump, basket, and vanity case—and, for the easily misdirected, a leather-covered GPS. ArtWalk? ArtRide!

A Walk To Remember

-------

Arguably, the opportunity to be in a room with Alec Baldwin is, in this day and age, enough to coax anyone out on a rainy night. Now add to that a good cause (New York’s Coalition for the Homeless) and an auction that includes works by Francesco Clemente, Jenny Holzer, Jeff Koons, James Rosenquist, and Silvia Venturini Fendi. Yes, you read that last one correctly. Artwalk 2010—hosted by Baldwin, Richard Gere, and Carey Lowell, and honoring Rosenquist—does primarily draw from visual artists for its annual for-charity auction, but since Fendi has signed on as this year’s sponsor, the house matriarch (and accessories designer) has ponied up, too. Hitting the block will be a made-to-order Selleria Peekaboo bag (pictured), customizable from the leather or skin down to the stitching and lining, in 37 color variations. No wonder Isabella Rossellini, Selita Ebanks, Heather Marks, and Olympia Scarry are all expected at tonight’s event. Want to join them? Tickets are still available at www.artwalkny.org, where you can also bid on auction items.
