(Photos courtesy of The Apartment by The Line)We already knew that fashion stylists Vanessa Traina and Morgan Wendelborn had serious chops in the couture, beauty, and home decor departments. (We wrote about—and begged to move into—their gorgeously set-designed SoHo loft-turned-showroom, the Apartment by the Line, back in November.) Now they can add art curators to their titles. The pair has teamed up with Christine Kuan and Rebecca Bronfein Raphael, of the online collecting site Artsy, for a 17-piece exhibition, which went on sale yesterday and will be available for the next six weeks.
The contemporary collection ranges from black-and-white photography by landscape photographer Chip Hooper and crinkled paper installations by Lauren Seiden to painted portraits by Tony Scherman. On their own, they're singular statements. Displayed in the subdued interiors at the Apartment, they're true works of art.
