CAN'T FAKE THE FUNK C ollector's paradise Centre on West Magnolia Avenue had been open less than a year when the pandemic forced its doors closed. Luckily, fans of the shop's superb assemblage of streetwear and sneakers were well-versed in keeping an eye on Instagram for the latest drops. Centre sources directly through brands such as Nike, Jordan, VEJA, and Adidas, and has been quick on its feet over the past few months. "Now more than ever, we want to be there for our community," says Fort Worth store manager James Jardine. "We've been keeping ourselves busy online." That includes donating 100 percent of the proceeds from a collaboration with Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott to the North Texas Food Bank ($85,000 in online orders), and continuing to update the Centre website with fresh apparel, including Can't Fake the Funk tees created for Fort Worth and a 2020 Summer Games collection, planned pre- pandemic, designed with the zip codes of their two locations (the Dallas store is on East Mockingbird Lane).

In the surrealist world of artists François-Xavier and Claude Lalanne, anything was possible. The best-known works of the French husband- and-wife duo, known collectively as Les Lalanne, were produced during the late '60s, '70s, and '80s, but their careers were long and successful — Les Lalanne became darlings of the fashion world, with commissions for Yves Saint Laurent, Hubert de Givenchy, Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, and John Galliano. A rare 1984 figurative sculpture by Claude Lalanne, Petit Fille à la Poule (Little Hen Girl), is being offered at Heritage Auctions Tu e s d a y, October 6, as part of its Design Auction. The sculpture was acquired directly from Les Lalanne during the consignors' visit to their studio outside Paris, says Heritage design director Brent Lewis, and could fetch $150,000 at auction. Some 250 lots will be auctioned, including 100 rare pieces from a private collection of Comme des Garçons, designed by the legendary Rei Kawakubo or her protégé Junya Watanabe. Another highlight is a pair of urns by Italian architect and designer Gio Ponti, who joined ceramics maker Richard Ginori in the 1920s. The urns are estimated to sell for $8,000 to $12,000.
