Fashion Designer/Photographer Daniel Chimowitz, former companion of fashion blogger Kristin Tieche, was found beaten and bloody in a Mission District alleyway last Sunday evening.
Witnesses report that Ms. Tieche, still at large, was responsible for the beating. Apparently the dispute began over an Alexander McQueen clutch.
Chimowitz reportedly gave another woman the exact same clutch - stylist Tricia Gillespie.
Tieche was seen heading Southeast on her Motobecane about an hour before the incident, determined and with a mission on her mind.
She had the clutch in her possession and was ready to use it.
She found Chimowitz in the alley behind the Women's Building and attacked without hesitation.
Chimowitz said he didn't see it coming.
A brutal fight ensued.
Tieche stated that she believes McQueen would have been proud to see the clutch used the way it was intended.
Silly Chimowitz didn't realize that Tieche and Gillespie were colleagues in the fashion industry. Fashion faux-pas numero uno: don't give both your girlfriends the same McQueen clutch, a**hole.
Chimmy feebly tried to defend himself.
But dangerous Gillespie drew blood.
Poor Chimmy could barely crawl when the ladies left him the alley.
I'll keep the clutch.
Jeez man, you really had me going there! ...A clutch like that is totally worth fighting for though ;)
I suppose among the range of occupation hazards confronting workers of all kinds, being blackened in an alley by insane, jealous fashionistas would count as light duty.
A McQueen clutch no less! What an idiot!
=v= I find this entry disturbingly short on bike content.
McQueen, of course, is the person most responsible for the "coin slot" look rocked by so many fixie riders.
It's a bike FASHION blog, Jym.
Love the drama!
o.k remind me to keep my distance..
great photo story.. made my day
=v= I guess I'm just clueless about clutches. Today's Times (which seems to be competing with you) offers spiffy bags that keep your hands free.
I've been happy with my Swrve cycling jeans, now available in a Barneys limited edition, which are higher in the back than the front. Since these are the opposite of McQueen's "bumsters," not only do I avoid inadvertently collecting the season's falling leaves and acorns, I'm also safe from a fashion-rage beatdown in the Mission.
Jym - send us a pic of you looking spiffy in your Barneys!
The po campo bags are very cute and great for urban cycling - not so great for beating up boyfriends! ;-)
Hilarious! Completely unexpected.
