Always on the hunt for unique and creative news that is circulating thru the fashion industry, I was so excited to find out about the exhibit going on now at the Colette boutique in Paris to celebrate its 15th Anniversary…
Sarah Andelman’s amazing boutique will be hosting a carnival of various booths (friends and vendors of the store will be participating) to celebrate 15 years in the business. To highlight this momentous occasion the biggest part of the celebration will be a portrait exhibit that will cover many of the boutique walls. Craig Redman, who is an NYC based illustrator and creator of the infamous blog Darcel Disappoints, has collaborated with Sarah in the past on projects for her store. So it does not come as a surprise that he would be involved in her boutique’s birthday bash! Redman has illustrated a collection of 150 portraits based on his “one-eyed” Darcel character, resembling celebrities from different worlds of fashion, music, design, photography. The exhibit is on display now until March 31st and the portraits will be available for shipping on April 15th.
Here are few of my favorite portraits:
