Welcome to PLEASURE ISLAND!

Released chez Ze Records, a Spring/Summer teazer with a tantalizingly self-contradictory title – tecknofobia – has upgraded Dean de la Richardière from cool Paris Djette/muse to rising star status. A stand-out night bird, blessed with a rare mix of voluptuous charm and class Money Can’t Buy, noblesse oblige, Amandine aka “Dean” de la Richardière first made her mark as the 20-something PR of the Man Ray bar on the rue Marbeuf, where she was the life and soul of the Woman Ray, a ladies only networking event, for high-flying women.

KAWS – Just kidding?

At 40, mainstream urban artist Brian Donnelly, aka Kaws, is a walking contradiction. Born in New Jersey, based in Brooklyn, this art school grad with roots in graff, displays the stern demeanor of an angry young man never having seen the ocean, yet chills out in St Barth’s. Hence the cheeky chic title of his show at the Eden Rock Hotel, a super-iconic haven for the mega rich. PERMANENT HOLIDAY is also the title of the star work: a logo-like dolphin, painted in neo-pop kitschy-constructivist mode, exhibited alongside MAN’S BEST FRIEND, a brand-new series of black and ...
