Still high from Halloween sugar rushes, we headed over to Deitch Projects last Saturday night for the opening of Brooklyn-based artist Kehinde Wiley’s third exhibit, Down. Wiley set the sartorial tone for the evening in a very dapper piped orange suit that could have been dipped in his very own paint pots. Strangely a slew of other dudes followed suit, with varying piped ensembles popping up all evening. Coincidence? Trend alert? Or did we just miss the art-appropriate dress code memo?
