Yesterday afternoon, we rolled uptown to Barneys and found our girl, Alison Corrie, in the front window (of the coolest department store in town) laying down the finishing touches on her Gypsy Caravan!
Not sure why, but I imagined the Barneys Gypsy wagon to be made of kyptonite or some special Barneys designer cardboard… much to my delight, this wagon is made of cardboard collected from the street, just like the first one Alison built for the BOXED IN group art show presented by Plaztik Mag & Factory Fresh back in May!
Barneys‘ Gypsy Caravan is not only bigger than the first wagon Alison created but of course especially approved by the man himself, Simon Doonan, and will display Dries Van Noten’s new fall collection to be hung on a clothing wire. Alison may even lay out egg carts in the window floor as she did at Factory Fresh!
Ad of Factory Fresh had to “tend” the egg-crate garden everyday while BOXED IN was open because Z loved to roll around in the swordfish plant!! But hey, wouldn’t you? In my imaginary life (or is it Morgan & Alison’s imaginary life?) swordfish plants would be abundant for all and the hills would be rolling in onions & potatoes. Air dry Dries on a wire isn’t a bad addition!!
