Curated by Fabien Baron, Interview magazine's editorial director, a new exhibition hosted by Monclear titled 'Art for Love' is announced for the New York Public Library. Some of the most iconic fashion photographers alive today – including David Bailey, Patrick Demarchelier, Arthur Elgort, Annie Leibovitz, and Bruce Weber – were asked to capture Monclear's Maya duvet jacket, which was designed the year the brand was founded in 1952.
“It’s something really incredible because we gave [the photographers] the freedom; we didn’t give them any brief,” Monclear president Ruffini said. “We said you have to do exactly you, and that was really the key.”
The 'Art for Love' Monclear exhibit will support the HIV and AIDS research organisation amfAR via a silent auction available through Paddle 8 and a dinner hosted tonight, which according to WWD is "expected to draw some of the top names in fashion photography, such as Terry Richardson, Vinoodh Matadin and Inez Van Lamsweerde, plus the participants in this exhibit and their muses."
