Look Book by Larry Krone

Look Book, published in 2015, is an art book celebrating the costume and fashion creations of Artist/Entertainer Larry Krone. Throughout his active career as a visual and performing artist in New York City, Krone has consistently defied categorization, staking out his own territory somewhere between art, fashion, performance, and design. Look Book is the first publication to spotlight Krone’s design work as an intrinsic part of his artistic practice.

Photographer Todd Oldham, an accomplished Renaissance man of art and design himself, brings his trademark vision of vibrant, uncomfortable beauty to the fashion photos of Look Book, which are accompanied by acclaimed concert photographer Kevin Yatarola’s concert photos taken at NYC’s Joe’s Pub and a section of Krone’s behind the scenes snapshots and fashion sketches.

A glossy 12 x 9” hardcover book designed by Bruce Burton, Look Book bursts with color-saturated photography, cutting edge fashion, and the explosive dynamism of the models/performers who inhabit Look Book’s pages. Larry Krone’s muse, alt-cabaret it girl cum national sensation and TV star Bridget Everett is the primary model for House of Larréon, while Krone is his own muse for his Larry Krone BRAND couture western wear creations. House of Larréon and Larry Krone BRAND fashion lines begin at opposite ends of Look Book, meeting in the middle at a spectacular gatefold photograph of some of New York downtown’s brightest superstars wearing Krone’s signature patchwork couture. Other Look Book models include Jim Andralis, Becca Blackwell, Cole Escola, Kathleen Hanna, Jenn Harris, Murray Hill, Adam Horovitz, Erin Markey, Neal Medlyn, Molly Pope, Adrienne Truscott, and many more.

Look Book contains essays by Todd Oldham and Shanta Thake as well as a conversation between Larry Krone and Bridget Everett and testimonials from celebrity fans including Costello Tagliapietra, Victor Garber, David Levinthal, Patti LuPone, Marc Shaiman, and Scott Wittman.

This special, signed and luxuriously packaged version of Larry Krone’s Look Book has been produced in a limited edition of 24. The book features the signatures of both Larry Krone and Todd Oldham, the latter of whom did the primary photography for the book including its sensationally salacious double cover images! Larry sewed the special drawstring two-toned spandex bags on which he hand-screened his trademark “I’m a Larréon Girl” House of Larréon winking pin-up logo, adding a single Swarovski crystal rhinestone for the one open eye. The durable and bright nylon parachute cord drawstrings are adorned and joined at the ends with 2 metal beads from Todd Oldham Fall 1995 Collection. Each bag is made from different combinations of contrasting shiny spandex, drawstring cord, and metal beads, so no two bags are alike. Please enjoy the surprise of which Look Book package we’ll select for you!
