WE LOVE LEE!














Recently I was sitting back, having a chat with my girlfriends about our current muses and it seems that the one name on the tip of all our tongues was Lee Bontecou. Bontecou, a sculptor, was a Fulbright scholar in the fifties who showed her wares at the famed Leo Castelli gallery in New York in the sixties (whose walls incidentally were also hung with the likes of Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol). After a period of relative obscurity in the eighties and nineties, a retrospective held in 2003 at Los Angeles' Hammer Museum brought Bontecou's creations back into the left coast zeitgeist.


Inspired by Bontecou's early work, which consisted of welded steel, wire and fabric in geomteric patterns, I've chosen this Lanvin handbag as the handbag to carry for Fall. Crafted in a mud-colored thick textured leather, this handbag features lucite handles and steel hardware and is reminiscent of Bontecou's natural palate molded into futuristic shapes. Here's to Lee. And Lanvin! Priced at $1000. Please contact: thegang@decadestwo.com for further information or to purchase.
