Polka Dot George
Suited in a total Armani look, customized by the renowned Japanese artist Kusama, George Clooney is starring on W magazine’s latest cover. Polka Dot George is being interviewed by Lynn Hirschberg about his new film “The Monuments Men”. The film depicts the true story of a special “art platoon” of museum directors, curators and art historians who join forces to rescue art stolen during World War II.

The announcement that of Ann Demeulemeester is exiting her own brand came as a sad but elegant autumn storm. The Belgian designer presented her first men’s collection in 1996 and her influential bohemian goth look, together with the famous deconstructive Antwerp style, will remain forever in fashion.
The Garçonnière is saying goodbye through the work of photographer Erik Madigan Heck from 2010. In a series called “Ann Demeulemeester: Male Retrospective, 1996-2009″ Madigan Heck captured the true spirit of the brand, as the models were wearing Demeulemeester’s pieces from each past collection.
His Name Is Paul Smith
“Hello, My Name Is Paul Smith” is a new exhibition in Design Museum London dedicated to the work, life and the creative process of designer Paul Smith.
The exhibition just opened last week and The Garçonnière’s London’s representative (see picture below…) was in the opening party to send us some images.
The visitors to the exhibition enter through a room that simulates Smith’s tiny first shop in Nottingham. Then they experience the recreation of Smith’s current Covent Garden design studio, an hotel room in Paris where he sold his first collection and many other stations in his professional career and personal life.

Set in 1955 Italy, Wes Anderson new short film for Prada is a quirky homage to Federico Fellini, Italian Cinema and home made pasta.
“Castello Cavalcanti” is the film’s title and also a small Italian town where American race car driver Jason Schwartzman crashes his car only to reunite with his imaginary (or not?) ancestors.
My Own Private
It’s really designed, I think, to strip you and blend you. It’s like feeling like the invisible man. You just stand there, and you start disintegrating, and you can’t see yourself, and you just feel like you’re being absorbed into this big blob of glitter”
River Jude Phoenix (August 23, 1970 – October 31, 1993)
