Art and Fashion
In tomorrow's New York Times Style section there is a little feature on fashion retailers that showcase "art" alongside clothes and also clothing that is "curated" much in the manner of art. This of course piqued my curiosity but in the end I didn't understand the hype. The clothes are cute but aside from the fact that it's handmade by some hipster - what makes it art? Isn't stock in normal clothing stores also curated - i mean, someone had to buy them...is calling that buyer a buyer and not a curator the difference?
Nevertheless, I think the shoes are killer cute...
