Simon Doonan: Gay Men Don’t Get Fat

Edited by

If you’re fashion savvy on any level, you know who Simon Doonan is.  The visual charisma he brings to the windows at Barney’s resonates for every style maven from the posh women uptown to the wild experimentalists downtown. Like many icons and influencers tend to do, he started sharing his views with the world through books. His sixth literary installment Gay Men Don’t Get Fat launched this past weekend, and Simon held several speaking engagements (including a very chic breakfast with moi) where he divulged the secret world of the stereotypically stylish gays to audiences young and old. The book’s 60,000 perfect words diffuse and dive into achetypes of all sorts – from the gays to the straight men to the French women – and leave you laughing out loud…in my case embarrassingly so whilst alone in the Grey Dog Café.

Luckily you have us at FashionIndie to give you advice on what to pick spending your time/money on, and what to skip. This week we tackle the juggernaut that is the Willem De Kooning Retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

STREET-ART FAVES: Photos to Entice the Urban Explorer

Edited by

Culture-bots all over NY have an opinion about their favorite spots to oggle street-art and this zeitgeist reporter is no different. This year has been an especially exciting time for the country’s most controversial canvasses. Between the Banksy documentary, news that graffiti mecca 5 Pointz will be closing, and the “Art in the Streets” exhibition at LA’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), the walls and buildings in the five boroughs have been getting just as much attention as any runway during fashion week.
