[New York Fashion Week] Richard Hambleton: A Retrospective 

During New York Fashion Week, I had the pleasure of attending Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld & Andy Valmorbida, with Giogio Armani's presentation of Richard Hambleton at Phillips de Pury & Co. The exhibition is the final installment of an international series curated by Roitfeld and Valmorbida, in collaboration with Armani, has included solo shoes in Milan, Cannes, Moscow, London, and New York. Richard Hambleton: A Retrospective highlights 50 of Hamblton's most influential works spanning from 1982 to the present, as well as twenty iconic images of the artist's work chronicled by photographer Hank O'Neal. 

From his "Mass Murder" installations of the late 1970s, in which he secretly placed blood-splattered, chalk-body outlines throughout 15 cities, to his "Shadowman" series of the 1980s, where ominous, shadowy figures were painted in unexpected corners, alleys, and side streets, Richard Hambleton has permeated our collective consciousness with unforgettable images for over three decades. One of the only surviving members of a peer group that included Warhol, Basquiat, and Haring, Hambleton has been living a reclusive life in his Lower East Side studio for the past twenty years. 

Above are a few examples of Hambleton's work alongside some of his very fashionable guests. The event was filled with noteworthy guests, such as Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Bar Refaeli, Camilla Alves and Lauren Hutton. However, I was far more interested in what the non-celebrities were wearing and they did not disappoint.
