As pretty much everybody already knows, Tableau Vivant just opened. Tableau Vivant is a much-anticipated collaboration between Aida Ewing and M4r1lyn Magic of Glam Affair, offering avant garde clothing, poses, furniture, make-up, and photography accessories. As far as I can tell, the clothing available at Tableau Vivant is men’s clothes (which makes sense, as Glam Affair’s clothing is geared towards women). And it’s fantastic. Guys: it’s very androgynous. If you’re at all familiar with M4r1lyn’s style, it all looks like you’re raiding his closet: sumptuous fabric textures, elegant tailoring, an excellent blend of masculine and feminine elements in every piece. And the fabric textures are sumptuous: seriously, you guys, check out these trousers. The beautiful seam up the front; the wrinkles, shading, and light that suggest a silky crispness; the shine on the button. I love details like these.
It’s really some nice stuff. I’m already looking forward to seeing what else comes out from this brand — the world needs more good androgyny, especially if it can keep from straying into the realm of the absurd. For now: well done indeed.
