Those who like a little fashion with their art and a little art with their fashion will find themselves in fusion heaven starting tonight when (if installation continues as planned) the curtain rises on the new windows at the Madison Avenue flagship of Barneys New York.
Nine months in the making, the installation marks a collaboration between the store and the Athens-based Deste Foundation for Contemporary Art, founded and run by the renowned art collector Dakis Joannou. The store’s press materials call the windows, on view through July 4, a “public art event in New York City,” to be feted Tuesday night with a big party at the store, including a performance by John Bock.
"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
