In the Trenches with the Sartorialist and More News You Can Use

Frank Stella, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, 2006

  • Sartorialist Scott Schuman loves a good trench coat. Burberry took note and commissioned the blogging lensman to photograph trench wearers worldwide as the inaugural contributor to its “Art of the Trench” project, created as “a living document of the trench coat and the people who wear it.” Head to Burberry’s newly launched site to filter images of trench wearers by gender, trench colour, styling (belted or unbelted), and weather.
  • While we patiently await the major Frank Stella retrospective slated for 2013, we’ll content ourselves with frequent visits to the Atrium Shops and Cafes. The Manhattan retail complex formerly known as the Citigroup Center has just installed a giant painting by Stella (pictured above) that flattens his recent Everlasting Gobstopper-evoking megasculptures into two dimensions. Originally commissioned as a theater curtain for Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, the 2006 work is 38 feet high by 65 feet wide and is now wrapped around the atrium’s super-column.
  • Fresh off their briskly selling and sweetly smelling collaboration with candlemaker Diptyque, Paris-based art/design duo Florence Deygas and Olivier Kuntzel were tapped by Ogilvy & Mather UK to direct a commercial for American Express. It’s entitled “Impossible.” Watch it here.
  • Tell your friends and set the TIVO! Objectified, Gary Hustwit‘s industrial design documentary, makes its U.S. television debut tomorrow (Tuesday, November 24) on PBS’s Independent Lens. It’s a shortened version—53 minutes versus the original 75—but that’s just 22 more reasons to buy it on DVD. Check your local listings for show times in your city.
