Since unveiling BLK DNM a year ago, fashion world journeyman Johan Lindeberg has kept the content coming. Yesterday, he celebrated the brand’s inaugural anniversary by having Olivier Zahm put up an installation in Lindeberg’s Lafayette Street headquarters, turning the place from a store into a creative cornucopia: an Aaron Young video in the window, Olaf Breuning pencil drawings sharing wall space with Zahm’s crowd-pleasing party photos, and a soundtrack (not to mention totes and T-shirts on sale) designed specifically for the occasion. Hey, it was enough to keep Lindsay Lohan around for a while. (Not long enough, however, for the paparazzi, who showed up later to get their shots.)
Lindeberg moved to and fro, visibly pleased with it all. “Fantastic energy,” he declared, then whipped out his camera as artist Robert Longo, who’s moved into fashion since collaborating with Bottega Veneta on a campaign two years ago, started signing prints. Entitled “Purple in 3-D,” the project makes use of work in the magazine’s latest issue and will be up at least through fashion week.
