Get inspired by "Boxer."
Check out this short video making the Internet rounds by famous New York fashion photographer Steven Sebring. The 16 mm film stars art world heavyweight Patti Smith creating a free form poem on a designer bag and its packaging (the purse is called Boxer and is by designer Reed Krakoff, formerly of Coach). It is set to music by Smith's daughter and a spoken word piece by artist Jack Walls that pays homage to boxer Joe "Smokin' Joe" Frazier. "Sometimes a fight can be a blood bath/ Kiss the mat, man/ Go the distance, man/ Sometimes a fight can be a blood bath." I love when fashion and sport and poetry collide.
