Katy says “she is no angel”.  I beg to differ.

 

My thanks to the many photographers who took these shots.

JUDITH LIEBER passed away on Saturday

The famous handbag designer JUDITH LIEBER and her husband, GERSON LIEBER, the modernist artist………..both passed away on Saturday of heart attacks.

Her handbags were luxurious and collected by museums . Many of her clients collected dozens of her bags.  WARHOL called them works of art.  Judith did not consider them to be works of art…..she answered….”I am an artisan”.

CLICK ON THE WATERMELON.……….

Her bags run about $5,000 each…….more for vintage bags.

DAVID BOWIE IS HERE….in the Subway

Inspired by the DAVID BOWIE exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, this is Spotify’s celebration of David’s life in NYC.  His first show was at Carnegie Hall.

This is the subway station at Broadway and Lafayette in SOHO.

CLICK ON him …….and see David CLOSE-UP

TEDDY was here too.

Let’s FACE it……….

Thousands of sculptures of faces adorn the buildings in New York.  I find all of them delightful.

 

I got so I was really just sick of sculpture……….a quote from ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG.

WAH?  Where was HIS HEAD when he said this???

BERGDORF GOODMAN Christmas Windows • 2017

This year Bergdorf’s teamed up with NYC MUSEUMS…………..and themed the windows accordingly.  Can you guess which museum each window highlights!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year I was very disappointed with the windows…….they just weren’t up to snuff with years past.
