One of the first things you see when you step inside our new office is a giant painting by Jason Trotter (above), all color and abstract shapes—bright, joyous and vibrant. We love it. We're big fans of Jason's, too. Like us, he changed careers—from fashion publicist to artist—to chase after what he truly loved. That's as inspiring as the work itself.
In this latest VB Edit issue, we'll share more of what we love in the world of art and design. Like banana-leaf wallpaper, in our guide to the best restaurants featuring that iconic print. And our list of must-see exhibits around the world right now. And artist Holland Cunningham, who illustrated our first-ever VBGB tote bag.
You'll also meet art world insiders, both emerging and established, from Lolita Cros, founder of The Salon at The Wing, to gallerist Eleanor Acquavella. Plus, VB interior designer Carolina de Neufville reveals quick tips to recreate the look of our newest store in Palisades Village, California—where, by the way, you can spot more of Jason's amazing work.
