So there is this relatively unknown artist who is a fan of Creative Recreation named Corey Bradley. He sent us in this picture of a painting he did and we where all REALLY IMPRESSED! Yes, it's a little scandalous! But it's art and it's beautiful. It's our opinion that he will not be "relatively unknown" for much longer.

went to the new Blue Ribbon restaurant for the 2nd time in the month it has been open. FYI, as good as their other spots are i have only been to them a handful of times in the YEARS they have been around! that's how good the new spot is !!! I highly recommend checking it out and if you do please try the miso cod, the bone marrow and the grilled oysters ... OH and the steak is sick as well! hey - it aint all about the clothing!

So everyone is big fans of the Lulu's stores down in Florida. Here in the showroom we all love what he is doing both down there as well as his expansion into the NY scene. Anyways - we saw some pics posted from his recent store opening on Lincoln road of the new Christian Audigier store! Now we are not only fans of the stores, we are also ENVIOUS of HIM! Congrats Elie !!! Best of luck!!! (with the store - not the girls!)

￼Good day all. I have mentioned to a few of you about a special project that the year of... x simon birch will be launching here in Hong Kong in a few weeks, we have collaborated on a special art project. Simon is a friend of mine that I met here in Hong Kong at one of his gallery exhibitions.
The day after we met, I simply approached him to work on a collabo and he was psyched. He said he heard about the year of... and tony magnetic and would be pumped to do it... I was more then excited!!!! Our first project was for a museum installation in singapore. I simply executed some t shirts for him with some graphics he developed to tell a story about life... the 7 icons...They were used for a short film fight seen... This now has turned into a mini collection of the icons on various garments that we will show next holiday season 2008.
The immediate project involves Simon painting on the raw panels of 16 pair of jeans... Half of these panels will then be sewn together to create his works of art... The remaining pieces will be installed into the walls of the space we are creating for the year of... installation / shop at a new shopping destination called Delay No Mall..
To shed some light on Simon's work I have included, the invitation to a special L.Vuitton event that is happening this week here in Hong Kong.
Simon is being honored this Friday evening as L.V's artist of the year Asia winner. that is no small feet... you can see more of simon's work at the linke below as well...
Please take a second I am sure you will enjoy..
best and bless mr.magnetic

So we at theMUSEUMgroup & theVANGUARDgroup (aka TVMG) thought we would give this whole BLOGthing a shot. Perhaps a tool we could use to keep in touch with our retailers and let them know as much as they want to know when they want to know it?? Here goes nothing ...
