When Barneys New York Creative Ambassador Simon Doonan met designer Jonathan Adler, their first conversation was kind of awkward.
At least that was Adlers take.
I didnt find it awkward at all, insisted Doonan. I was intrigued by him and thought he was very charming and fun. He was wincing from the awkward silences. English people have a different culture. I like an awkward silence; its time to catch your breath.
Since that fateful day, the very busy couple adopted a dog (Liberace), published several books, and were married in 2008 by a rabbi in San Francisco. The alternative was a ceremony in Big Sur, California, officiated by a woman named Soaring Stargazer.
Last night the stylish couple spoke at the 92Y in Tribeca, NYC, with Randy Cohen as the moderator. We chatted exclusively with the self-proclaimed glam rock meets hippie outfitted twosome after the panel.
What do you love most about each others style?
