daily inspiration #69

last night i had the pleasure of going to the opening of a lillian bassman show at paul smith, possibly the most beautiful store in la. not only did i get to see a bunch of old friends and meet and chat to the incredibly talented and nice gary oldman and his stunning wife alexander, but i got to see ms bassman's photgraphs close up. i love the illustrative quality of them. she was way ahead of her time...sadly she couldn't make it, she's 93 and a little frail. but wow! amazing work!

and to coincide with the premier, another great banksy piece appeared in a parking lot downtown. i think this is one of my favourites of his for a while...seems to be very old school banksy, and sits very nicely with baloon girl!

i was lucky enough to be invited to the la premier of banksy's movie this week....have to admit it was great...funny and gave an insight into his world...a little bit. worth checking out!

one of the most stylish men in history, he was responsible for my lifelong interest in fashion. the sex pistols have always been one of my favourite bands, and malcolm has always been in my peripheral vision. a true raconteur who didn't give a fuck what anyone thought, rest in peace malcolm mclaren!
