Go Read A Book!!!

Could it be a Sloppy Seconds Party in ATL???
No, actually it’s the embodiment of hipster NY crafted by Greg Krelenstein (26), Leigh Lezark (23), and Geordon Nicol (23), together known as the MisShapes.

This trio has managed to hypnotize fashion designers, club kids, and trend-loving stylists since their beginning in Feb’04, when they rocked their first Manhattan Saturday night party.

With a strong following of weekly party-goers this venue has become an intersection of music, art, and fashion. With their music hosting a range of events carried on by institutions like the Whitney Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art to fashion world powerhouses like Chanel, Versace, and Calvin Klein.

Makes since that they would assemble a collection of portraits as a document of their unique world, and they have with the coming of the MisShapes coffee table book.

The portraits, edited by MisShapes member Geordon Nicol, include cutting edge musicians, celebrities, artists, and designers, some from different generations, alongside the youth of down town New York. Madonna, Yoko Ono, Michael Stipe, Axl Rose, Kelis, Peaches, Hedi Slimane, Michel Gondry, Nan Goldin, Sienna Miller, Chloe Sevigny, Bloc Party, My Chemical Romance, and many others are included.
