MILANO - Fashion Week
At La Triennale. After the Belstaff dinner, at midnight there was a private screening of the cult film Downtown 81 directed by Swiss photographer and film maker, Edo Bertoglio seen here with the films' producer, the legendary Maripol. Maripol was an image maker and stylist for Madonna and other artists, as well as, a jewelry designer and art director for Fiorucci in the 80's in NYC. Downtown 81 depicts the art and club scene of New York, staring Jean Michel Basquiat. The film is part of The Jean Michel Basquiat Show at the Triennale museum (until January 28th, 2007). This is the first big European exhibition of the graffitti artist who was also know as "The Black Picasso" and died in 1988 of a drug overdose. Superb, it should not be missed.
