The collar and hip pieces are made from sturdy thermoplast and are also decorated with Swarovski crystals and golden metal spikes. A detachable silk train can be added to the collar on request.
The Interiors of Wes Anderson’ in the latest issue of Apartamento #13
“You could compare Wes Anderson to an interior decorator,”says Apartamento’s Editor-in-Chief Marco Velardi of today’s enchanting series, taken from the bi-annual title’s latest issue. With the director and screenwriter’s private house strictly off limits, the magazine traces the meticulously considered art of set design in his filmography: miniature brownstone apartments, nostalgic color schemes and embroidered and elaborate costumes. “I always say that a picture of someone’s home tells you a lot more about that person than any portrait possibly can,” muses Nacho Alegre, director and co-founder of Apartamento. “I imagine in a movie the time you have to describe a character is limited, so using the interiors to do so probably becomes something of a necessity.” An intricate visual language has become Anderson’s trademark; in his hands, set design becomes both a storytelling device and character trope, from his shot-on-a-shoestring debut, Bottle Rocket, to his latest saccharine fantasia, The Grand Budapest Hotel. Velardi adds: “Ultimately, if you look at his work there are a lot of interiors, with very peculiar and very precise work on the spaces and what people wear; Wes is passionate about every single detail, and that’s why it’s fascinating for us.”
As much as I was Team Sharon Needles for the win in RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 4, I was spiritually linked to Miss Latrice Muthaf@&$in’ Royale.
Every word or phrase that came out of her mouth was gold and I truly was inspired by her bon mots of encouragement. This piece was inspired by my favorite saying of hers. I will play this over and over and over again on repeat. I giggle uncontrollably and I get teared up hearing her delivery during the RPDRs04 Reunion Special.
A truly unique human being.
LOVE YOU LATRICE! Thanks for your strength and courage Momma!!!!!
