We were challenged to make a piece this week for a certain special someone at Barney's NY. We came up with two ideas and the one in the black vase won. The other one - which we knew was over the top to begin with, is now gracing our store front window to welcome holiday shoppers on Friday. Why so obnoxious? The challenge we were given was to create a design the matched Barney's decor. This holiday season their decor looks like my grandmother's craft bag exploded on a warehouse full of Helmut Lang.
