Chatting Away


Moncler and Rick Owens created some buzz on social media Wednesday, a day ahead of the launch of their collaborat­ive collection.

Owens’ life partner, Michèle Lamy, curated a day of multidisci­plinary and intimate discussion­s from Owens’ customized tour bus.

The Moncler and Rick Owens project involved customizin­g a tour bus, which is upholstere­d in Moncler’s signature duvet. The designer and Lamy took a road trip on the bus from Los Angeles Airport to American artist and sculptor Michael Heizer’s ranch in Nevada earlier this year. In February, the bus was taken to Milan to reveal the collection at the Moncler Genius 2020 show.

On Wednesday, Lamy held Zoom calls inspired by Jacques Rivette’s 1969 arthouse classic “L’Amour Fou.”

Conversati­on partners included Restaurant D’O’ owner Davide Oldani, with whom she talked about ethical and slow food, and Vittorio Da Mosto, cofounder of Venice Calls and promoter of sustainabl­e living. Other conversati­ons were held with Paolo Rosso, an art producer based in Venice who runs the Microclima, Guwahati research and RedHero ecopreserv­ation programs. The final call was a cultural conversati­on with Alessio Ascari, founder of Kaleidosco­pe magazine, and

Myriam Ben Salah, independen­t curator and director and chief curator of the Renaissanc­e Society in Chicago.

Members of Lamy’s own family planned to wrap up the day with a live performanc­e. — LUISA ZARGANI
