Last weekend I visited The 14th Factory, a massive art installation in an empty industrial warehouse on the outskirts of DTLA, by British artist Simon Birch. The 14th Factory exhibit is unlike any you have seen before, a monumental, multiple-media art and documentary experience. My favorite spot was the large sculpture that was designed to look like a crashed meteorite held inside of it, ‘The Barmecide Feast’, a room bathed in white light, renaissance paintings and sculptures are placed throughout, replica of the bedroom from Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 cult film 2001: A Space Odyssey. There is also a room called 'The Crusher' which has a hundred or so pitchforks hanging from the ceiling and it is impressive to see and it also makes a great photo op.
As always, I like to embody characters with my outfits and this time I improvised something that channelled a bit of a XXI Century Coco (Chanel) with a bit of a strange creature from outer space (actually me). I styled my hair in a purple bob with bangs with all the Mia Wallace's vibes in the world. I wore a Zara pink tweed set of jacket (similar here) and shorts (similar here) with massive Chanel sunglasses (affordable version here) and a classic Chanel flap bag. I matched the white bag with my Kurt Geiger boots (similar here). I wish I had the courage to actually change my hair like this permanently, but knowing me, I'd be over it in a week, so a wig worked wonders! SCROLL DOWN to shop the post.
If you're in LA, don't miss The 14th Factory. They just extended it through May 2017!
