Tavi Gevinson and Takashi Murakami Cut Loose at New York’s ‘Garage’ Magazine Party

Rolling up to Galerie Perrotin on Orchard Street for the latest Garage magazine party, I was instantly enveloped by a group of teens. But these weren’t the screaming, clamoring Jake Paul devotees trotted out as set dressing by weary media reporters every time they’re forced to write about celeb meet-and-greets.

This was an artistic institution, and the young people milling around outside it spoke in respectfully hushed voices while they admired one another’s outfits and wondered whether they’d be able to meet artist Takashi Murakami. Fans of the rising singer Billie Eilish hovered too, and collectively the crowd exuded deep respect for the game, which is to be seen without being noticed.
