more rambling art/fashion thoughts
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
yeah exactly, the renaissance or the school of delft sprang to mind for me as well but perhaps more recently artists did move into genuinely industrial production methods: at his pre-2008 peak damien hirst had huge warehouses full of workers producing spin paintings by the thousands. then having pretty much flooded the market he (allegedly) bought back a ton of inventory via his dealer and the auction houses, and made a much-touted return to the 'tortured romantic' archetype by sacking his whole team and making (bad) paintings alone in his garden shed.
another angle i think is interesting is the way the 'culture industry' attaches to a particular figure and grants them a cachet that translates into a very real form of capital- (eg the way clement greenberg hyped the abstract expressionists). surely margiela has benefited from this type of consensus as much as anyone in the fashion industry. (in this connection it's interesting to note that one of the sources/interviewers quoted in the article is chris dercon, now director of tate modern and one of the most important figures in the art world)

Just called yoox for a (successful) price adjustment. The hold music was real laid back.

I was planning on buying a pair of Ann D boots from the Barneys Warehouse sale recently but stopped to go take care of something before ordering. Came back 5 minutes later and it was sold out. Ah well. It's all in the game. But I just saw what I suspect is the guy who bought them trying to flip them for a roughly 100% profit on Ebay. Asshole. ffffuuuu.gif

Maybe the spectacle of watching that guy relist those boots over and over again as the months turn into years will make up for it.

The schadenfreude will certainly soothe my burning rage.

I lived in Paris for 3 as a teenager, moving from there to Madrid after that was like night and day best time of my life in Madrid. I speak near perfect French and I'm not american so I didn't get any of that hate, but being in a French middle school was awful.

I guess I can only speak for myself, but I thought that middle school was just plain awful for everyone else too.
