Marc Jacobs: Between Collections
Last year, Marc Jacobs moved. After living and collecting in an impeccably designed townhouse on Greenwich Village’s Bethune street for more than a decade, the fashion icon found a new canvas in the Frank Lloyd-designed Max Hoffman House of Rye, New York. As he prepared to relocate, the legendary designer joined Sotheby’s Chairman Amy Cappellazzo to explore his eclectic collection and to discuss his unique approach to curation.
Massimo Bottura at the Intersection of Art and Artisan
At the heart of Massimo Bottura’s Osteria Francescana restaurant is both Italian food and contemporary art, and the more you talk to him, the harder it becomes to parse out where one ends and the other begins.

The Accidental Life of Herbert Lust
Looking back on nearly a century-long life, Herbert Lust can’t help but feel lucky. He has one of the finest collections of works by artists including Alberto Giacometti, Robert Indiana and Hans Bellmer, among others. But he didn’t just collect these influential artists — he learned from them, challenged them and perhaps most importantly, he befriended them. In this episode of A Life Less Ordinary, Lust recounts a life of eccentric curiosity, from his youth in rural Indiana to his career as an investment banker and eventually to his status as one of the leading collectors of art in New York.
