Though we find his self-consciously under-designed collections a bit precious at times, we're all for Rogan Gregory's new collaboration with two-time MOTH Michael Stipe.
Last seen rocking some Freeman's Sporting Club chalkstripes, the R.E.M. frontman is apparently a Rogan fan to boot. He's also something of a frustrated artist, judging by his installation, entitled *Relics*, at Rogan's new Bouwerie Lane Theatre digs.
This snap is from opening night, where Jeff Koons and Coldplay's Chris Martin also made the scene. The show runs through July 27 so you can judge for yourself.
