Once again, Moss has staged an intervention and stopped the world from dying of boredom. Yes, possums, the opening night of Fraternal Twins has once again proven the enduring power of plain old good design, attractive young people and free alcohol. Who could have predicted? They came, they swilled, they left, smiling and secure in their newfound discoveries. The rain held off, and next door Flos was offering live tattoos, and my god, what more could one want from ICFF week? If you weren’t there, if you stayed uptown at the MoMA party, if you thought the crowds would be too much for your tender sensibilities, then admit now you made a big mistake. Here was where you needed to be.
moss bureau blog is the covert gateway to the inner world of Moss Bureau. Behind the scenes, through the looking glass, up the down staircase, over the rainbow, all around the town. Our town. Our Town. We cover the bureau-front, from top to topless, stem to stern, sea to shining see. We open drawers and draw our own conclusions. The designers, the artists, the interns, friends and foes, clients and miscreants, consultants and co-defendants, the Fairs and the unfair, the good fight and the bad lieutenant, lies, truths, massive cover-ups, mitigating circumstances, plausible deniabilities. The undercooked and the overlooked. Wet-work, dry wall, the dog, the pony, the smoke and the mirrors. We look down the barrel, pull the trigger, and face the music. Fearless, feckless, and born to run. Sometimes a cigar really is just a cigar. Think different. It’s later than you think.
