PIECE BY PIECE: Launches and openings may be a standard occurrence on the party circuit, but a fete to celebrate the release of a jigsaw puzzle is still something slightly out of the ordinary. That’s exactly what took place at Industria Superstudios on Monday night when Shiseido hosted a cocktail reception for the unveiling of the RxArt 2009 puzzle, a 200-piece mash-up of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s 2008 self portrait. (The party also toasted Shiseido’s new skin care line, Future Solution LX.) Jason Wu, Daphne Guinness, Becka Diamond and Harley Viera-Newton were on hand to take a look at the new toy, sales of which will benefit RxArt, a charity that exposes hospital patients to contemporary art. Indeed, there were some interested customers. “This puzzle is where art meets whimsy,” enthused Wu, who said he also had plans to commission the artist for paintings for his new office.
