T wo of Dallas' most significant arts organizations partner on a pair of important group exhibitions this summer, both devoted to sculpture. The Warehouse — the North Dallas art space developed by collector Howard Rachofsky and the late Vernon Faulconer — presents "The Sensation of Space," curated by Leigh A. Arnold and Thomas Feulmer (through November 15). The show takes its inspiration from an essay written by French writer Jean Genet about his friend, artist Alberto Giacometti. Talents on view include 20th-century greats Louise Bourgeois, Constantin Brancusi, Willem de Kooning, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Ed Kienholz, and Franz West. Meanwhile, at the Nasher Sculpture Center, artworks acquired by Cindy and Howard Rachofsky and Patsy and Raymond Nasher unite in "Pairings: Sculpture in the Nasher & Rachofsky Collections" (through August 18). The result is a thoughtful mix of sculptural works from two of America's most seminal collections based in Dallas. thewarehouse. org, Billy Fong OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. 16 L auren Bush Lauren founded her impact- driven charitable brand FEED in 2007, a bit less than two decades after her grandfather, George H.W. Bush, became President of the United States. After seeing childhood hunger firsthand while traveling with the UN World Food Program, Lauren created FEED to help end childhood hunger through the sale of FEED tote bags, the proceeds of which have provided more than 100 million meals to date. It was only a matter of time before FEED collaborated with Polo Ralph Lauren — the second Lauren in her name is courtesy of husband, David Lauren, son of Ralph Lauren. The Polo x FEED collection, which launches at the end of July, features four chic styles in FEED's signature burlap and linen with leather trim — a tote bag, backpack, pouch, and cap, priced $65 to $165. Each features a stamp highlighting the number of meals the purchase provides to U.S. schoolchildren in need. "The design really reflects the burlap, heritage aesthetic of FEED but is also very on-brand for Polo," POLO x FEED F o r t h o s e w i t h a cultivated personal style, a department- store fragrance simply won't do. Founded by former model and serial entrepreneur Deborah Turner, The Scent Room in West Village offers almost 350 unisex perfumes from hard-to-find international brands. Among them: Eight & Bob, originally bottled for JFK after he met the perfumer in the South of France; Jasmin et Cigarette, an accurately named fragrance by Paris-based Etat Libre d'Orange; and Roja Parfums' Amber Aoud, a luxurious oriental priced $1,000 a bottle. The Scent Room, 3699 McKinney Ave., thescent Lisa Collins Shaddock SIGNATURE SCENT POWERHOUSE COUPLING Lauren tells PaperCity. "We have come together with Ralph Lauren because they are such an iconic family brand. FEED's mission from day one has been to help children and families in need, so it was a natural fit in many ways. The iconic nature of the Polo brand mixed with the burlap heritage FEED aesthetic is really powerful," she says. "Every piece in the collection helps provide kids in the U.S. with a free school meal through our domestic giving partner, No Kid Hungry. So when you shop the collection, you are helping kids learn and thrive, as well as helping families who might be struggling to make ends meet." What could be more stylish than that. Ralph Lauren, 58 Highland Park Village, ralphlauren. com. Anne Lee Phillips G oyard, purveyor of fine French leather goods and luggage, is moving into Highland Park Village. While details are still under wraps regarding an opening date, we're told the store will occupy stylish digs between Harry Winston and Tory Burch. Goyard's heritage dates back to 1792 when Pierre- François Martin founded a luggage and packing business that catered to French aristocrats. In 1852, an apprentice of the company — François Goyard — took over and it has remained family owned and uncompromisingly chic ever since. Goyard is perhaps most recognizable for its popular tote bags made in the brand's signature monogrammed Goyardine canvas. We dream of custom Goyard pieces, from handmade trunks for tea, polo, gardening, and picnics.
