INSPIRATION: GRACE JONES & GENDER NEUTRALITY

Maybe you already know that I love Grace Jones. To me, Grace is the queen of fashion.

A few days ago as we were testing out where to set up the projector in our new apartment, I put on videos of Grace. We love watching old TV, so we started watching her interviews, and I stumbled upon one that stuck with me.

So, here's a video of Grace Jones talking about gender neutrality and smashing the patriarchy before we had the modern words we use today. (Specfically at 6:28). Out of all the interviews we watched, I thought this interviewer was among the best. Unlike the other interviewers (with the exception of goddess joan rivers), He really did his research and shows no sign of intimidation or judgement. 

Language has become quite complex with regards gender these days, but within my lifetime, we didn't have terms that could easily explain these ideas because they were still being created. Language has always interested me for this reason. Imagine how simple concepts were in ancient Rome before they implemented word order. in this video, Grace is able to explain herself before society could even pallet her ideas, before society even had words for the concepts she's describing.

all hail queen grace

CUSTOM BRIDAL PIECES ON BRIDES.COM
 
 

My friend and client, Chanelle Laurence (now Ojeda), of Valley High & The Penelope Times married her BF of 13 years, YES 13 YEARS, at the Thatcher Estate in Palm Springs and I had the honor of making her a custom hair piece and necklace. Today their wedding was featured on brides.com, so I thought I'd share.

With Chanelle's direction, we created a v-shaped brass hair piece. The piece is super light weight, which was my main concern; AND MADE OF high polished brass, that simply pins in the hair with oversized bobby pins.

I also made her an HIGH-polished Karenni Choker. Both were hand made while I was juggling traveling between NY, Portugal, Italy and Peru, so I'm especially happy the custom piece turned out so well!

Chanelle had a lil baby bump by the time the wedding actually rolled around, so in one of these amazing 'second look' pics below, she's her chugging Martinellis (lol).

 
 

PS they had In-N-Out cater their wedding because CALIFORNIA KNOWS HOW TO PARTY

BAGTAZO AT AGO TORONTO WITH O'KEEFFE

Dear Diary,

My Wilder Hats are at the museum gift shop at AGO Toronto to compliment their current Georgia O'Keeffe exhibition (now through July 30th) organized by the Tate Modern! πŸŽˆπŸŽˆπŸŽˆ 

It's a huge honor to have my work be associated with O'Keeffe, her work has made such an impact on me.

If you're in the area and haven't visited the show, I highly suggest it! The retrospective made its only North American stop at AGO, so it's extra special. 

I've loved seeing people's selfies wearing the hats as well, so please keep them coming. Also keep posted for other Bagtazo hats showing up along side O'Keeffe exhibitions throughout the US this year. I'll reveal the details as soon as I can!

Until then, enjoy the summer.

xoxo,
Coco
