Creature Comforts at Home with the Haas Brothers and Little Monsters

DECOR: So I’ve had a little secret obsession with the wildly weird Haas Brothers for a few years now, which I would aptly describe as an oddly romantic infatuation for their otherworldly masterpieces.

In these past ten years, the fair has transformed from its early days has a long dilatory weekend excursion, to a weeklong of artistic and cerebral debauchery: previews, exhibition openings, tours, conversations, and galas. To wit, no longer for the fainthearted—only the stealthiest, wealthiest, and most chic of art collectors can penetrate the VIP roster of festivities and survive in triumph.

Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld Does Dallas Art Fair

Chat: When my fellow Brit and artistically acquainted friend James Cope told me, he was visiting the Dallas Art Fair, and why, I had to seize the moment and catch some inside scoop from the most stylish art curator on the New York art scene—Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld.  Life is full of odd coincidences; I just featured his mother Carine Restoin Roitfeld this week. It’s raining Roitfelds!

James is a good bloke, and solid contemporary art connoisseur, he left Dallas last year to take a cultured bite out of the big apple, and, needless to say, his artful circles connected him with Mr Roitfeld—so I asked for a short Q&A about his impending appearance in Dallas for the Dallas Art Fair.
