LOULOU & YVES last night on Page Six, New York Post, "Decorator Opts" by Richard Johnson. Swipe to read the full story, Robert Couturier's complete comments on Betty Catroux in LOULOU & YVES, his hilarious account in the book of Loulou’s mother Maxime sitting on a dog at a dinner party and killing it, and the full bio of Amy Fine Collins in LOULOU & YVES.
See you tonight at Holly Hunt.
ROBERT COUTURIER: [Maxime] and [Loulou] were both decadent, unhealthily so, but with a poetic quality, unlike that terrible woman, the other muse, Loulou’s friend— what’s her name? I can’t bear her— Betty Catroux. She is truly decadent. Repugnant.
AMY FINE COLLINS was one of the young people in fashion and design who
were drawn to Maxime when Maxime was living on lower Fifth Avenue in the
eighties. A persistent, polarizing presence on the party scene, frozen out of
Vogue for decades, Collins had her big moment posing for a freebie delivered to
New York building lobbies.
ROBERT COUTURIER: Nothing [Maxime] did could possibly surprise. She told me once how she’d walked into a dinner party, sat down and heard a squeak.
“I peeked and quickly realized I’d sat on a tiny dog and killed it.”
“Maxime! What did you do?”
“Well, what could I do? I put it in my purse.”
“Yes. I couldn’t tell the hostess I’d just killed her dog. It would’ve ruined the
party. Of course she was calling for it all through dinner.”
“And nothing. I just carried on as if nothing happened. When I left, I
dropped the dead dog in a bin on the street.”
“But what about your friend?”
“Oh, she ran around looking for Fifi and finally gave up.” @headlinejohnson @robertcouturier58 @amyfinecollins @toryburch @vanityfair @hollyhuntdesign @ysl @carolyneroehm @dhwendygoodman @designhunting @nymag @pagesix @nypost @boscobelhg @obercreekfarm @deborahneedleman @allisonspearaia #louloudelafalaise #yvessaintlaurent #robertcouturier #richardjohnson #maximedelafalaise #amyfinecollins #bettycatroux #madisoncox #alexreese
