Dear Shaded Viewers,
The other day I went to see Gaspard Yurkievich’s installation and video at l’Hotel. Today I decided to find out a bit more about Gaspard’s shoe obsession.
DP: How did it come about that l’Hotel asked you to collaborate with them and how did it feel being the first fashion designer to show at l’Hotel?
GY: I WAS APPROACHED BY “PARCOURS SAINT GERMAIN” WHICH IS A FESTIVAL OF CONTEMPORARY ART THAT TAKES PLACE IN SHOPS AND RESTARUANTS IN SAINT GERMAIN. THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT THEY EVER ASKED A FASHION DESIGNER TO PARTICIPATE. I WAS DREAMING OF DOING SOMETHING IN THE MISTINGUETT ROOM AND ALSO OF MAKING A VIDEO INSPIRED BY A SCENE FROM PABST
