Taubman Art Collection Up for Auction

25 Oct

th

Sotheby’s has the honor of auctioning a prized Motown icon’s art collection on Nov. 4th. It’s the personal collection of A. Alfred Taubman, the shopping mall magnate.  Peruse the three Sotheby’s  catalogues here and you will view a treasure trove of art spanning many art periods and artists from Dali to Degas to Modigliani (above.) The sale is valued at more than $500 million. The Detroit News reports that the proceeds of the sale will pay the estate taxes with the remainder funding the A.Alfred Taubman Foundation.

I had the opportunity to interview Taubman for Style magazine, which is no longer in publication. He was gracious, interesting and passionate about art and architecture. His philanthropy is boundless leaving a legacy at the University of Michigan, Detroit Institute of Art and College for Creative Studies to name a few. I’m certain his Foundation will continue the path of generous giving to the arts, education and medicine.

 

 

 

A Tender Moment

21 Nov

Diptic-3

Motown fashionistas celebrated the 20th anniversary of  the boutique Tender in Birmingham, Mich. Sisters Cheryl and Karen Daskas have an eye for style in shoes, handbags, jewelry and women’s apparel. They introduce emerging and established designers with panache. The story carries all the exclusive designers like Miu Miu, Lanvin and Jason Wu. But, I love it when they introduce an upcoming young designer who is featured the very next month in Vogue magazine. Here are some snapshots from their anniversary party held on Nov. 20th at the store.
