TALKING FLOWERS: Calvin Klein Collection’s Madison Avenue flagship has installed an exclusive floral shop with artist Lauren Messelian, who specializes in visual and floral installations for fashion, fine art, fragrance and home.
Messelian is no stranger to Calvin Klein, having designed many of the store’s floral installations as well as those for the Calvin Klein, Inc. corporate office and events. This is the first time Messelian’s creations will be available to the public. The limited-edition shop, which will be open through Dec. 24, offers arrangements for the home and holiday hostess gifts. Among the offerings are stones boxed in an acrylic cube, a dramatic square glass vase with swirled tulips and a selection of topiaries and wreaths.
Messelian started Florishop LLC in 2001, with Calvin Klein, Inc. as her first client. Her clients and collaborators in the fashion industry include Roger Vivier, Tod’s, Stella McCartney, Rachel Zoe, Michael Kors, Frye, Tory Burch and the Guggenheim Museum.
