"Intuii che dietro ogni promessa di fedeltà doveva nascondersi qualcosa di simile: immagini dell’altro a cui solo noi assistiamo e che ci rendono testimoni e depositari di ciò che di più prezioso e fragile possiede quella persona, della sua esistenza contingente, che ha bisogno della nostra testimonianza per non scomparire. Un obbligo a vivere custodendo i momenti migliori della persona che amiamo."
Edie Sedgwick was a socialite and model who became a muse to Andy Warhol. Heading to New York in 1963, Sedgwick's hard-partying, socialite lifestyle led her to meet artist Andy Warhol, and she became his muse during the height of the Pop Art movement. She starred in several of Warhol's movies before her death in 1971. Edie epitomizes the Avant-Garde 60s to us and Modlips Revival is greatly inspired by her signature style.
After starring in a number of Warhol movies at The Factory , Edie Sedgwick began living at the Chelsea Hotel, where she became close to Bob Dylan. Dylan's manager Paul Morrissey explained that Sedgwick had developed a crush on Dylan and that she thought he reciprocated and were beginning a romantic relationship. Unbeknownst to Sedgwick, Dylan had secretly married his girlfriend Sara Lownds in November 1965.
