Advanced Style Video: Ilona Royce Smithkin in Stereo

[Video: Lina Plioplyte Text: Maayan Zilberman]

It’s been a while since we reported on our dear friend Ilona. All summer she’s been in Provincetown where she teaches her annual painting class and swims in the cold salty bay (as we learned in our initial meeting with her). If any of you are in the area next week, she’ll be performing her famous cabaret act TUESDAY, August 10, at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (let us know if you are interested in attending, we’ll send you the info)!

This very special video was made by our staff videographer, Lina, who has made wonderful short films about Debra, Carol, etc… Many of you do not know this, since Lina is so often behind the camera, but she is a style icon in her own right, and extremely inspiring to me as a designer. One day we will turn the cameras on her and show you just what I mean.

But for now, enjoy the video, and thank Lina for capturing even more of Ilona’s beauty and wisdom.
