Artist Max Snow isn’t new to clothing design—he’s been creating his own black jeans and T-shirts for years. This summer, however, he turned it into a more official gig when he agreed to create a limited-edition nine-piece capsule collection for the Surf Lodge in Montauk. Snow’s luxe assortment of swim trunks, tank tops, wool baseball caps, and selvedge-denim jackets (with prices ranging from $75 to $595) will get their official debut tomorrow, at Snow’s weekend pop-up shop at the East End hotel.

From now until February 2, New York-based artist Max Snow’s latest photography project, The Lady of Shalott (named for Alfred Tennyson’s poem) will be on view at Paris concept shop Colette. Featuring eerie black-and-white images of nude women hiding under sheer veils, their faces often obscured with white, the exhibition includes shots of such fashion stars as Rebecca Dayan and Arizona Muse. Not surprising, considering the artist’s wife is stylist Vanessa Traina—who, it should be noted, was also photographed for the show.

The Lady of Shalott runs through February 2nd at Colette, 213 Rue Saint-Honoré, Paris.
