NEW YORK — Kazuko Oshima, a Japanese jewelry designer and "guardian angel" to Barneys New York, died on Friday of what was believed to be esophageal cancer. She was 65.
Oshima, who went only by Kazuko, sold exclusively to the specialty store in each of its U.S. locations. She got her start in 1986 designing ethereal-looking scarves, the most famous of which adorned Madonna in her video "Like a Virgin." It was recently sold at auction for $15,000.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
