GazeLLe Drowning In the Scooter LaForge Monster World.
Yesterday, Bubi and I headed on to Anita’s Way at the Condé Nast Building to witness the performance “GazeLLe Drowning In the Scooter LaForge Monster World,” within the bARTsch: inspiration art-a-porter event that is happening this week.
From a window, we saw Scooter and GazeLLe in action. Surrounded by white balloons, masks, paintings and props—a riot of color and form, graphic and primitive—Scooter was drawing on balloons that he and GazeLLe would sign and gift to the onlookers. GazeLLe would move and posture through the “landscape,” wearing an outfit that evoked Chanel, Gauguin and Memphis design. Brilliant!
Scooter and GazeLLe assumed a heroic pose and Bubi took a wonderful photo that captures the painting-like diorama in all its glory.
For the occasion, I wore my straw Mountain hat with a squiggle headband Lord Wang gifted me, a vintage apricot-colored white elephant dress from Narnia, Jimi’s necklace, a khadi cotton bag from Amma’s ashrams, and vintage Banana Republic leather flip flops. Bubi was wearing a vintage Diane Von Furstenberg shirt.
We ran into Lord and Marco Wombat, who were dazzlingly outfitted in Scooter LaForge, including a Vivienne Westwood hat customized by Scooter. James Rubio and Ken Wilson were also there, and it was wonderful sharing with them.
Michael Alig was also there, and Bubi snapped our picture, him wearing a t-shirt that read “Alig.”
Congratulations are in order for Scooter and GazeLLe, for generating a most beautiful, stimulating and inspiring experience.
