What’s better than The Selby being in your place? Being in Selby’s place! Technically, The Selby is living in the window of Colette, but roles will be reversed as onlookers peer into a day in the life of Todd Selby. In the first week of March Todd Selby will be spending time in an installation that is decorated to look like an eclectic mix of all of the apartments that The Selby has documented. His debut book The Selby is in Your Place goes on sale April 1st.
On Monday Todd held a meet and greet in his window apartment. He followed up with painting live portraits of pets that people brought to the window, accompanied by celebrity canine Oscar the Water Bar Labrador. Yesterday he held a karaoke party hosted by Hot Breathe Karaoke with fun prizes. Tomorrow Colette invites you to stop by and pick up a copy of The Selby is in Your Place before it gets officially released April 1st. Todd finishes up the week on Saturday with a personal consultation of apartments with special guest appearances. Click here for the full schedule and details. All events are free and open to the public.
So far Olivier Zahm and Caroline Gaimari of Purple magazine have stopped by the window and Karl Lagerfeld attended the opening. Be on the lookout for other special visitors!
