REMINDER: Tomorrow, Wednesday, April 25 at The Museum at FIT, NYC: Join LOULOU & YVES author Christopher Petkanas for a bracing, tell-it-like-it-was conversation with Alva Chinn, who modeled for Yves with an ineluctable combination of charm and dignity forty years ago. Alva and Farida Kehlfa, pictured in slide 2 from "The Muses" in last weekend's T magazine, both have their say in LOULOU & YVES. Joining Alva and Christopher for the talk are Patricia Mears, MFIT Deputy Director, and David Croland, who knew Loulou in the early 70s when he was a model dating Robert Mapplethorpe, and Robert Mapplethorpe was nobody. Conversation followed by signing. 235 W 28th St. Free and open to the public with registration at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (212) 217-4585. @museumatfit @faridakhelfa @arthurelgort @tmagazine @nytimes @davidcroland @valeriesteele @macmillanusa @stmartinspress @dustinpop @patriciamears #alvachinn#fashionculture#faridakhelfa#arthurelgort#davidcroland#robertmapplethorpe#patriciamears#valeriesteele#tmagazine Photo 1: Dustin Pittman; 2, Arthur Elgort.
Magoos, in TriBeCa was a bar popular with artists in the 1980's. I subletted an apartment from a writer a few years ago while she was on sabbatical in Europe and snooping through her (autobiographical) books I got a sense of what it was like to grow up in 'arty' TriBeCa in the 80's before the money came. T Magazine's latest series #TMicronovel features short stories inspired by a particular image. This photograph of Magoos by Ken Nadle was chosen by #TamaJanowitz for her story 'Tunnel Vision'.

Food stylist @rebeccajurkevich debut in @tmagazine, food styling for the 80’s food story “How the Kiwi Changes New York’s Food Scene” in this weekend’s Culture Issue, inspired by cookbooks of the era. #rebeccajurkevich#foodstyling#tmagazine#edgereps
What were your favorite finds during #Salone2018 ? Our founder @nwoah spotted some fun finds while in Milan. Swipe ➡ to see some of her favorites such as the contemporary design installation at Villa Necchi for the @TMagazine Party, @Lucanichetto's lighting at @MatterMade, Lina Bo Bardi at @nilufargallery, and meeting Jonathan Olivares and his new book (great cover!). He said #cosm is the first chair that made him want to update "A Taxonomy of Office Chairs." Literally, the guy who wrote the book.

This hit in the gut. Today’s #nytimes#tmagazine about the first wave of HIV victims in 1981/2/3. Many friends and aquintencens from the carefree 70’s. Missing is our friend #JoeMacDonald . He was the original male #supermodel . But he seccumbed when no one still knew what was going on and had a name. I cut his hair to the last moments and freely smoked joints with him. It convinced me that casual contact was not the contagious culprit. Contairy to the ruling hysteria. Cheers Joe. You are remembered.

I think every creative or visually minded person has an era and a place that has influenced them profoundly, that they return to again and again for inspiration and insight. For me, that period was always the early 80s in NYC, and when I was interviewing to become EIC of @tmagazine, I knew that if I got this job, I would make an issue inspired by those years and this city. Not only was it the era of NYC's greatest creative generation, a time when all its New Yorkiness went global—hip hop, queer art, graffiti, local fashion (as embodied by Ralph Lauren, Carolina Herrera, Stephen Sprouse, Michael Kors, etc.), and more—the similarities between that time and this one are too hard to ignore, and make it newly resonant: a Republican president in the White House who'd embraced the Christian right; a growing chasm between rich and poor, many groups of people fighting for their full citizenry and full respect from their government. So in this Sunday's @nytimes (and online now), you'll find our tribute to New York City, 1981 through 1983: 36 Months That Changed the Culture. Our seven cover icons are, in alphabetical order: Jennifer Beals (@thejenniferbeals); Dapper Dan (@dapperdanharlem); Kim Gordon (@kimletgordon); @CarolinaHerrera; #LarryKramer ; #RunDMC (@revwon, @kingdmc); and #DavidWojnarowicz . Beals, Dan, Gordon, Herrera, and Kramer were shot by Craig McDean (@craigmcdeanstudio) and lovingly styled by Mel Ottenberg (@melzy917). Run-DMC was shot by Gary M. Green (@garygreenphotography). Wojnarowicz was shot by #PeterHujar (this is a never-printed image from a contact sheet) and appears thanks to The Peter Hujar Archive LLC, Pace MacGill Gallery, NYC, and The Fraenkel Gallery, SF. One of these issues will be in your @nytimes this Sunday AT RANDOM: If you have a particular cover you want, I suggest contacting @casamagazinesnyc or the magazine shop on the corner of Sullivan and Prince in Manhattan, who always have overstock of these issues. #tmagazine#T80sNYC
