Hottest Spices: Michèle Lamy

By Global Art Daily Editorial Board

Published on September 1st, 2018
Originally published in GAD Magazine Issue 02 (Fall 2018).

        We are very excited to reveal our exclusive interviews for Global Art Daily Issue 02: Michèle Lamy and Maria Koch, two women who represent –– in our eyes –– the spiciest of the spicy creative women. Michèle is an icon. Her lifelong work has permitted her to achieve true creative freedom. How often do you meet a French businesswoman who wears a du-rag and gold teeth? Did we forget to mention her signature khol line along her forehead and stained fingertips, which bear witness to the grounding she has as a person and creative genius? Next to the fiery Lamy, Maria Koch might represent a milder spice. But her creative vision should not be underestimated. She’s at the helm of 032c Apparel, one of the hottest streetwear brands right now. 

Both women were generous enough to take some time off their busy schedule and share some of their favorite things, from places they traveled to to the women who inspire them the most. 

Nota bene: we define spicy women as creative women at the height of their respective disciplines who aren’t afraid to blend their core practice with other creative disciplines, such as fashion, art, film, music, interior designing, merchandising, journalism, and performance to create objects and experiences that stand true to their undefinable mixes of tastes.

Many thanks to Michèle Lamy.
