Rather than get sucked into backstage hysterics, Sasha Pivovarova likes to find a spot and sketch. Her artistic endeavors have been so widely recognized that we wonder if editors can’t think of anything else to say about the husky-eyed Russian beauty. A noble pursuit compared to mindless tweeting, even if we have yet to receive our caricature of Karl Lagerfeld or Miuccia Prada. Sasha, get on that.
In the meantime, the model and artiste is using her talents to generate a little interest in Gap. Her drawings will appear on a five-piece capsule collection of underthings inspired by fairytales. Pivovarova is just the latest in a long line of artists who’ve collaborated with the Gap, which includes Chuck Close and Jeff Koons. Fairytales printed on lingerie and nightgowns. Nothing out of the ordinary there.
