"Monet Takes A Wrong Turn", 2002
Somehow I made the connection in my head between Monet's Giverny, where he painted all those water lilies, and Hubert de Givenchy, who designed for Audrey Hepburn.

On his way to Giverny, Monet detours to Paris, where he does a little shopping. The attendant is a younger version of Monet. The carpeting and designs on his shirt come from various Monet paintings. Joseph Hoffmann's "Cubus" sofa is here primarily to cover up missing elements in the photo of the younger Monet, but it also lends an artsy look to the fitting room. The Givenchy logo comes from their web site, although the polo shirts in the bag come from Lands' End.
