The Attraction of Mud

I love fashion!..I do.. I went on a shopping spree yesterday and splurged on fabulous items great for winter :) That all reminds me of Paris and what I would wear to Paris..
Speaking of Paris.. These images are from Steve Powers' (aka ESPO) exhibition in Colette.. titled “A True Provider Is Good To Find” and his new unseen before paintings made in Paris..

In honor of World Aids Day 2008, Steve Powers and Matt Goias reach out to the ultimate nexus of entertainment and street life; Parisian Prostitutes. It’s a project Mr. Goias titled, "L’Attraction De La Boue" or the "Pull Of The Mud".
Mr. Powers and Mr. Goias designed and distributed raincoats to street workers in the red light districts of Paris, as a functioning metaphor of the protection we as a society should extend to those most at-risk.

Powers said of the project, “We strive to protect you from the elements in high fashion and function, from the slick yellow vinyl shell to the latex condoms in the pockets. It’s the most we can do.”

A symbolic protective emotional shelter.."L'Attraction De La Boue" is a great exhibiton to visit.

Exhibition runs until January 3, 2009 at Colette, Paris.
