Our new Closet is Lita Albuquerque — the environmental artist, sculptor, painter, mother-of-two, and one of the coolest 68-year-old in the cosmos. With All Saints  as her uniform and Plato on her mind, Lita is an Ageless life-lover who’s as dreamy as her maze-like home that sits high up on the Malibu canyons. Being a mother-daughter team ourselves, we love to see mothers who have a positive impact on their daughters (i.e. teaching them to be individuals, nonconformists, and thinking), and we can totally see the renegade thread that connects Lita to her own mother, a French playwright and a member of Paris’ underground lesbian scene in the ’30s. Lita’s art comes out of the presence of her father’s absence, which was “enormous” in her life. She’s made majestic honeycomb patterns in front of the Egyptian pyramids and installed 99 blues spheres, each on corresponding to a specific star — in Antarctica. “I love saying that heaven is looking at you,” Lita told us. “It’s the other — we look at each other and we recognize the incredible beauty, and you just want to die, you just want to dive in.”
