Roitfeld And Battaglia: Urban Hoedown

On Monday night, Marc Jacobs and the Art Production Fund hosted an Urban Hoedown, genuine right down to the hay scattered on the floor of the Tribeca warehouse space. Partygoers were invited to indulge in cowboy costumes for the evening and Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld and Giovanna Battaglia obliged, pictured here wearing Band of Outsiders, Marc Jacobs, and Rodarte. Highlights included authentic Western style BBQ and a mechanical bull (although neither Vlad nor Gio braved the bucker to my knowledge). Vladimir shared that his favorite cowboy is Clint Eastwood which of course prompted me to sing, "Rollin' rollin' rollin'... Though the streams are swollen... Keep them doggies rollin'... Rawhide!"

The Roitfelds: The Little Black Jacket

In her typical style, Carine Roitfeld included her children, Julia and Vladimir, in the forthcoming book The Little Black Jacket... and now the moment we have been waiting for: Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld wearing a Chanel women's jacket! You would have to be a Roitfeld to pull off this look, quel homme !

Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld Opens Neverlodge

Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld certainly has a knack for shaking up the New York art scene, opening his latest exhibit last night at 22 East 71st Street in New York, an elegant neo-Italian Renaissance mansion designed by C.P.H. Gilbert, owned by Aby Rosen, and currently listed for sale with Sotheby's for a cool $50 million. Titled Neverlodge, the show focuses on 40 new works by French artist Nicolas Pol priced between $40,000 and $60,000, most of which are either sold or on hold.

I love the description from the official press release: "Transforming the palatial home into a den of standardized iniquity, Pol’s new body of work exists in a realm where sin and forbidden fantasies have been commoditized as carnivalesque. Part brothel, part ticketed amusement park, Pol’s Neverlodge captures both its subjects and onlookers within a participatory whirlwind of pleasure and suffering. Yielding imagery of high fashioned demons, faux corporations, reductive physics and wanton whores, the artist transposes his manic narrative onto the canvas within the web of a layered acrylic assault. Pol puts forth sarcastic and sadistic observations on abstract expressionism, figurative sculpture and mass production as he interweaves high and low culture into a bloodied frenzy."

Among the glamorous guests were Carine Roitfeld, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Giovanna Battaglia, Stavros Niarchos, Jessica Hart, Alexandra Richards, Marjorie Gubelmann, Nicole Miller, Alexander Acquavella, Alexander Tisch, Alexia Elkaim, Ashley McDermott, Attilio Brillembourg, Bara Tisch, Claude Wasserstein, Corice Arman, Cynthia Rowley, Dustin Yellin, Eric Eisner, Fabiola Beracasa, Gherardo Guarducci, Ginevra Caltagirone, Henry Allsopp, Honor Fraser, HRH Princess Firyal of Jordan, Jeisa Chiminazzo, Lady Liliana Cavendish, Larry Gagosian, Maria Bell, Matthew Mellon, Nick Cohen, Nicolas Poniatowski, Pietro Quaglia, Rashid Johnson, Renee Rockefeller, Richard Evans, Richard Sachs, Sante D'Orazio, Sean MacPherson, Serge Azria, Simon de Pury, Stacey Bendet Eisner, Tamara Mellon, and William Bell. Neverlodge is on display in New York through 16 March, 2012, and travels next to Istanbul.

Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld Brawls

Apparently models were in limited supply this season at New York Fashion Week as a fight broke out over a few of them this weekend involving Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld and his friends, Pierre Casiraghi (Prince of Monaco, son of Princess Caroline, grandson of Grace Kelly), Stavros Niarchos, and Diego Marroquin. The incident started at Double Seven, a nightclub in the Meatpacking District. Allegedly, the defendant in the case, Adam Hock, was seated with friends at the club including the owner, Jeffrey Jah and Joel Warren, as well as models Natasha Poly, Valentina Zalyaeva, and Anja Rubik when Vlad and his friends stopped by Hock's table, reportedly insulting the models and helping themselves to the bottle of expensive vodka on the table.

The statements from witnesses about the evening point to Hock as the sole culprit: “The prince walked up to the table, and Adam just slammed him for no reason... [Casiraghi] fell very badly. He flew across the room and landed on a table on the other side... The next thing I saw, all hell broke loose... Stavros jumped in to help Pierre, and then he got slammed in the face... Hock then allegedly punched out Niarchos, and quickly landed blows on downtown hipsters Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld and Diego Marroquin — as the flustered models frantically tried to break it up... Pierre’s face looked broken, with deep cuts and blood everywhere... He looked like he needed plastic surgery.”

Hock was charged with four counts of third-degree assault for the attacks and released on his own recognizance until his court date on 29 March. Casiraghi was treated for his injuries including a broken jaw at New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and released.

Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld Presents Ouattara Watts: Vertigo

Last night in Manhattan, Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld hosted another of his infamous art openings, impeccably timed to coincide with the beginning of New York Fashion Week. His latest exhibition features the colorful textures of neo-expressionist Ouattara Watts in "Vertigo" with 18 of the works on view for the first time. Watts was born in West Africa in the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire and studied at L’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris before moving to New York in the late 1980s under the influence of Jean-Michel Basquiat. Working to integrate his love of music and especially jazz with his art, Watts creates his intense collages and paintings primarily from recycled materials. He has shown at the Whitney Museum and the Venice Biennale among other notable venues. The current exhibit is on display through 19 February at 560 Washington Street. Guests toasted the affair afterwards with Hotpants cocktails at Acme, including the mother of the curator, Carine Roitfeld, attired in a striking skirt by Marc Jacobs, nude stockings with black seam by Wolford, and the racy hot rod pumps from the Prada Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Read more about Ouattara Watts in an intriguing interview by Cool Hunting.
