If you are in New York City this weekend, head on over to Waris Ahluwalia’s pop-up tea room in New York City, open for only ten days. You know him from Wes Anderson films, may as well get to know him for 10 days because of tea. Waris, who does jewelry design and has his own brand, issued the House of Waris Design Challenge–the winner being Swiss architect, Christian Wassmann, took over a temporary pop-up space under the New York City High Line and created the House of Waris Tea Room.
Retna is by far one of the best in the game, and from the looks of this, he is took over this spot in a way we haven’t seen him do before, taking his New Image show earlier this year to a whole new level. For Rivera & Rivera’s last exhibition in that space, they are unveiling Retna’s new floor-to-ceiling piece. Wish we could be there.
Just a beautiful, upbeat, charging Wall of Sound production by Mr Spector, with some fun little snarky lyrics in there as well. The Crystals rocked some good tunes early, and of course the Ronettes took over for a bit, but this is still a classic.
