18 Wooster Street, New York
Rock on Mars, a retrospective exhibition of the work of Stephen Sprouse, will transform Deitch Projects’s 18 Wooster Street gallery into a realization of Sprouse’s rock and roll futuristic vision.
Stephen Sprouse (1953-2004) was one of the most influential fashion designers of his time and a key figure in the dynamic mix of punk rock, wild style graffiti, and street influenced fashion that characterized the downtown New York community in the early 1980s. He was one of the first to build on the influence of Andy Warhol to create a fusion of art, music and fashion. He continued on a course that disavowed any division among these fields throughout his career.
The exhibition will introduce Sprouse’s extraordinary pop-influenced paintings to the larger art audience. His paintings of iconic rock and roll imagery including stacks of loudspeakers, Sid Vicious with his pants down, and an Iggy Pop crucifixion, have rarely been seen. The show will also include a selection of the video works made to accompany his runway shows, examples of his fabric and furniture design for Knoll, and fifty of his most influential fashion looks.

One of my favorite models of the last decade (that's the '90s) Shana Zadrick was the epitome of allure and sexual prowess. This bad-ass bitch was everywhere with her cat-eyes and "nude" lip makeup. A darling and muse of photographer Steven Meisel, Ms. Zadrick was the look everyone wanted. Italian Vogue, Guess, and the face of Calvin Klein's first Escape fragrance, she had all of the looks.... on lock down. Anytime you turned around this girl's hair was getting bigger and bigger (Thanks Oribe/Garren!) and mouth ever so open. And talk about perfect teeth...straight to death. The body: GORGEOUS, VOLUPTUOUS, VA-VA VOOM!!! Where is she now? Who knows, but lets say she's been and shall remain a legendary model of our times, the SEXIER ones at least. Miss you girl......

Recently discovered a new site and a company in Germany of all places that sells these exotic wares...www.khmissadesign.com You can't really buy from there unfortunately, since its for retailers, but perhaps email the company for stores that sell the line. ABC HOME does carry some things from them, so you can start there for now...I did email them an inquiry, lets see what happens. I, for one have already done the look in my room and just don't wanna leave it...soo chill, so WINTER 2008! Pictures coming soon! ENJOY.
