McQueen channel’s the iconic fashion designer’s intensity, but struggles with his tragedy

Considering the popularity of the fashion doc, McQueen seems long overdue. Not only a fashion great, the late Alexander McQueen was among a handful of designers embraced by the art world. His clothes were inventive and political and his runway shows were unparalleled. The audience actually gasped at his spring 1999 ready-to-wear show, for example, when robotic arms of the sort usually seen in a body shop splattered supermodel Shalom Harlow’s pouffy white dress with black paint. At its best, M..

This Leading Designer’s NYC Home Is a Wellspring of Inspiration

For architect Giancarlo Valle, designing the Brooklyn loft that he shares with his wife, AD’s Style Director Jane Keltner de Valle, and their two young children was about more than reconfiguring a space to suit a growing family. For Valle—who worked for A-list architecture firms like SHoP and Snøhetta (where one of his projects was the expansion of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art)—before opening his own office in 2016, “This was the project that got me into interiors,” he explains. (Those interiors include a Manhattan townhouse for Barne..

Target Goes Back To Basics With Its ‘Made By Design’ Home Line

(Photo by Derek Davis/Staff photographer) Target had a big win in its home business late last year with a collection by Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV's Fixer Upper. Hearth & Hand with Magnolia and its modern farmhouse aesthetic is honey for many of Target’s shoppers, who want a touch of Joanna’s signature old-is-new style. The product line’s appeal is its distinctive, yet familiar and comfortable design at prices everyone can afford. But for other shoppers Target needs to attract – Millennials who are in their prime for home-related purchases – it may not their cup of tea. Urban Millennials in their first (and likely small) apartment or home leaning towards a more contemporary design that won’t clutter tight spaces may not be drawn to that farmhouse-inspired look. Now Target has a home line designed for them: Made By Design. Target sets the table in a statement: “Guests – especially those establishing their first homes – crave quality everyday items that will simplify t..

Studio 41 Home Design moving into vacant Palatine auto dealership

Palatine officials say the village will gain more than a significant business when Studio 41 Home Design Showroom opens in a former Northwest Highway automobile dealership. Studio 41 executive general manager John Mannion expects the business specializing in home fixtures and décor to open in spring 2019 in the former AC Imports Jaguar dealership, 1410 W. Northwest Highway, just south of Dundee Road. AC Imports ended a 50-year run when it vacated the building in January 2017. Palatine Mayor Jim Schwantz said Studio 41 will improve the northern gateway into the village. He said the business isn't receiving incentives through a tax increment financing district or other means to take over the 35,000-square-foot structure. "It's a big win for us," Schwantz said. "There's certain things you can do within a TIF district. You can be creative. But this is outside of a TIF district, so this is truly a partn..
