Chiara Clemente Gets Behind Persol’s Lens

-------



Last night at New York’s Hôtel Americano, Interview Magazine , and eyewear atelier Persol threw a spring soiree to fete Chiara Clemente’s new film for the brand. Dubbed “Atelier Persol,” the short tracks eight artists (including Vanini Sorrenti, Sébastien Tellier, and Fabio Novembre) throughout their residencies at a Florentine palazzo.

“Persol curated the selection,” said Clemente of the lineup, “and filming was quite hectic! You can imagine going from eight different rooms, with eight different artists—every day there was so much happening.” Shot in the style of a documentary, the film features interviews with the artists (all of whom don strategically placed eyewear, of course), shots of their processes, and magnificent vistas of Florence’s Duomo and surrounding hills.

Clemente added that she’s a new Persol convert. “I got a pair that are a little bit smaller,” she said, referring to the brand’s popular 649/Steve McQueen style aviator. “They bring out the Italian in me. There’s something about them that reminds me of the Italian movie stars of the fifties and sixties. Maybe they’ll bring me good luck.” Catch the trailer of Clemente’s film, above.

Yazbukey’s Cult Dance At Le Baron

-------


Sometimes all a party needs is a girl in a corset who can dance. That was the case last night when, around midnight, jewelry designer Yaz Kurhan of Yazbukey christened her Fall collection, Cult, with a sexy dance atop a shrouded piano at Le Baron. The soundtrack was French heartthrob du jour Sébastien Tellier’s hit “Roche.” After her sultry gymnastics, we grilled Yaz about this season’s goods (Spring’s line includes mice coin purses, vintage plastic telephone bags, and a hotdog necklace with all the fixin’s). “It’s all about Sébastien Tellier,” she cooed, holding up the giant mirror-and-Plexi pendant bust of the long-haired, bearded crooner she was wearing. Besides a black lace push-up bra, nude bustier (a forties relic she discovered in an Istanbul souk for €20), and silver spike pumps, the oversize accessory for Fall was about all Yaz had on. “I love how he looks, I love how he sings, and I love all that hair,” she gushed. “Even if you don’t know Sébastien, my pendant also looks a lot like Jesus, don’t you think?” Around 2 a.m., Malcolm McLaren—an intime of Yaz’s—showed up, along with art director Marc Ascoli and his wife, Rue du Mail designer Martine Sitbon. “Yaz was my design intern when she was about 20,” Sitbon said. “She had short, spiky, tomboy hair, and she looked like an Egyptian punk back then. She has the same wicked energy now, only it’s so much more feminine.”
