NYC’s Own Zorro

Just recently I discovered Poster Boy NYC. Have you seen him? The masked man roams around the city’s subways cutting and pasting wall posters transforming them into public art. To me, his poignant work has a kind of crude beauty and his social commentary is right on the money.

Why then is he being hunted by the police and locked up like a common criminal? Because he is vandalizing public property. Is his work illegal? Admittedly, yes. But is it wrong? I would rather call it a freedom of speech; a freedom of art.

To T or Not To T?

Diffusion Line by Alexander Wang

The ‘IT’ boy of fashion award for the past couple of seasons would definitely have to be given to Alexander Wang. The love child of Hanes and Helmut Lang pumps out comfortable, edgy clothes for every downtown hipster (or wannabe). In Wang’s ensembles she looks as if last night’s club clothes and her pajamas somehow ended up in the same outfit – and it works. The only problem? $$$$.

Imagine my excitement, then, for a lower priced diffusion line that hit stores the beginning of this month.  The feathery soft tank and t-shirt dress are pulling at my heartstrings. But in this economy, who can afford a $75 tank top even if it is deliriously comfortable? And the dilemma continues . . .
