At October's installment of
the ICA's First
Fridays series, attendees watched a runway show inspired by the wild colors and
patterns of Brazilian artists Os Gêmeos, followed by a guided tour of their
exhibition. Local boutiques Serenella, Uniform, Turtle, Louis, and Riccardi
presented looks that could have been lifted from the brothers' canvases, while ICA neighbor Mario Russo
supplied artful hair and makeup. High fashion abounded in the audience, too, as
young things - more than a few fresh off the plane from Paris Fashion Week -
pulled out all the stops. Next up for First Fridays is November's Mixology,
where top Boston bartenders will commandeer the ICA's Water Café,
followed by December's '80s Night, inspired by the upcoming exhibit "This Will
Have Been: Art, Love & Politics in the 1980s." Learn more at icaboston.org.
Christopher Peirce Snow, restaurant staffer about town
self-described "student on sabbatical" could add "Marni brand ambassador" to
his CV. He wore pants, a blazer, and a shirt by the Italian brand, known for
its affinity for geometric patterns.
He topped his fierce
look with a bubble necklace by (guess
who?) Marni, a Prada clutch from the brand's 2004 Robot collection, and, of
course, his trademark blond coif.
A man after Os Gêmeos'
hearts, Christopher doesn't shy away
from bold prints. Case in point: his plaid Haider Ackermann slipper shoes, a
staple of his wardrobe.
