The Mother Of All Mother Duckers

So Basel, Pulse, Design Miami/ and Scope all had duck inspired pieces, which sort of bewildered us, but that was hardly the biggest ducky art news of the week. Franca Sozzani, the editor of Vogue Italia, was in town to unveil, hey, guess what, a giant resin duck by British artist Stuart Semple at The Raleigh. The piece was an ode to luxury sportswear lable Moncler, and will be auctioned of in February for the kids. Fashionites including Bruce Weber, Roxanne Lowit, Bob Colacello, Thom Browne, and Stefano Tonchi were all on hand to get ducked. Maybe this is why we saw so much water fowl inspired art.
