Michele Lamy – What’s Contemporary preview

Posted by Stephan Moskovic | April 18th, 2012

A models.com exclusive preview: Michèle Lamy on What’s Contemporary

In an era of homogenization and corporate mentality, the fashion industry has few iconoclasts left. Among the dwindling group of independent thinkers Michele Lamy ranks high. The cabaret queen turned high fashion backer presides over an empire that includes husband, Rick Owens’ eponymous label and Gareth Pugh’s haute goth creations. As a fashion fixture who is always relevant and always on the cutting edge, Lamy is the perfect subject for Christopher Michael’s What’s Contemporary.

“The latest contributor in What’s Contemporary is Michele Lamy, who is herself, a contemporary muse. When inviting her to exhibit her point of view on the subject upon this platform, we chose to do so by having her narrate a tour of their home and work space, exposing her relationships with the objects by which she arts both their spaces and lives. In understanding this relationship, between her and these pieces, we are able to see more clearly, the realm she creates from which much of their inspiration and aesthetic choices are drawn. An intimate journey through the Palais Bourbon which is both their headquarters and home, captured en image by photographer Gregory Derkenne.”

Have an exclusive first look below at Lamy’s feature story collaboration with What’s Contemporary’s own Saulo Madrid, and Gregory Derkenne’s evocative photos of the Paris legend (full story will be launching Monday April 23rd on WhatsContemporary.com)

    How is this model related. You’re moving too far away from your core just to seem artsy imo. no?
