James and a Les Lalanne sculpture.

I could not resist sharing one more of my favorites from the Park Avenue exhibition of Lalanne sculptures. This one is called “Wapiti” (Shawnee word for “white rump”) and depicts a six point bull elk looking over its shoulder. The symbolic strength of the elk has made it a popular image for centuries, and at scale this piece makes quite a statement. My mentor Albert Hadley had a 19th century life size stag by J.W.Fiske & Co. to compliment his sublime garden in Southport Connecticut, and I think I’ll have to follow suit with one of these lovely stylized Lelanne sculptures in my garden.

Stopping to admire this brilliant work, I’m sporting a pieced cognac suede jacket, a red feather weight micro ribbed cashmere turtleneck sweater, gray flannel pants, blue leather cap toe slip on shoes and a brown suede and leather satchel all by Gucci an over sized silk paisley scarf in blues, reds, browns, fuchsia by Etro – sunglasses are by Tom Ford.
